Former Web.com Tour/Canadian Tour player Dustin Risdon still has game. The Alberta native has been tearing through the PGA of Alberta ranks and on Thursday he will seek his first national title of any kind in 20 years.

Risdon, who won the 1997 Canadian Junior Boys Championship, has the lead at the PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada presented by Callaway Golf being played at Lora Bay Golf & Country Club.

Back-to-back rounds of 67 have the leader at -10 and with a three shot lead with one round to play in the Blue Mountains region of Ontario.

His nearest pursuers are Sonny Michaud of Quebec and Bryn Parry of British Columbia.

First round lead Dave McDonald of Ottawa is now in a share of 6th place at -4.

If Risdon should succeed Thursday he will add another title to his amazing season. So far this year he has won seven of the eight PGA of Alberta events he has appeared in.
