Coming to the ninth hole, his last for the round, the 59-year-old remained two-under. However, he would sink an eagle to finish the round four-under.

Sitting in second spot is Burlington’s Bernie Starchuk, a former Canadian Tour player and multiple time winner of the Ontario PGA Spring Championship.

He fell to even after a bogey on the sixth hole, but finished strong with birdies on six, seven and nine to complete the round at three-under (69).

Sitting two-shots back are four players all tied after rounds of one-under (71). The tie includes:  Wasaga Beach’sNick Digiandomenico, 2016 Senior Men’s Champion of Champions winner and Pickering resident Christopher Kertsos, Richmond Hill’s Michael Mealia, and Ottawa’s Randy Blondin, who is a member at The Marshes.
