Hadley Retains Lead At PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada

Hole #16, Port Royal GC, Bermuda

The winds blew again on Wednesday in Bermuda at the PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada but first round leader Brian Hadley was undeterred.

The 35 year-old from the Thames Valley Golf Club in London, Ontario added a second round of 70 to his opening 72. As a result he will carry a one stroke lead into the final round of the championship that is presented by Titleist & FootJoy.

“It was definitely a grind out there today, but it’s always going to be a grind when the winds blow like 40 km/h,” Hadley shared. “But at the same time it’s fun because you get to hit some shots you don’t normally get to hit.”

Hadley will be joined in the final group on Thursday by Craig Hocknull (74-69) with Gordon Burns filling out the group (76-69) at three shot deficit to start.

Even with a slim lead, Hadley is planning to do nothing but keep it simple for the final eighteen.

“I’m just going to go out there tomorrow and hit the ball well, try and make some putts and see what happens,” Hadley said.

Like Hadley, Hocknull admitted he’s just going to treat Thursday’s final round like every other round of golf.

“Golf is funny and sometimes it’s best to not really know where you stand because if you play your 18 holes, focus on what you’re doing there’s a pretty good chance you’ll end up playing better,” Hocknull said. “But if I know exactly where I stand coming down the stretch I may change a few things in my game.”

Lindsay Bernakevitch sits in fourth at 4-over, while Dave Zibrik rounds out the top five at 5-over.

The Inter-Zone Team Championship, which is comprised of four players per zone (and three scores per team counting), was determined on Wednesday. Team Ontario (Hadley, Burns, Danny King and James Skrypec) captured the title.

Gord Percy of the Carleton Golf & Yacht Club is the top pro from Eastern Ontario. He is in 18th place through 36 holes.
