Over the weekend in Winnipeg Brad Fritsch shot 65 on Saturday and then 65 again on Sunday to finish third at the Canadian Tour’s Player’s Cup.
On Monday the Manotick, Ontario-raised golfer changed venues to South Surrey, British Columbia but kept his favourite score intact as he shot 65 for the 3rd day in a row at the Morgan Creek Golf Club.
This time though it did not earn him a cheque…for now at least. The 65 at Morgan Creek made him the co-medalist at the final qualifying for the RBC Canadian Open, earning him one of just four spots left available in the field for this week’s PGA Tour event.
Fritsch will now join fellow Eastern Ontario golfer Matt McQuillan of Kingston in the field of Canada’s National Championship at the Shaughnessy Golf Club and Country Club in Vancouver. The RBC Canadian Open gets underway on Thursday.
Canadian golfers in the field for the tournament include: Albin Choi (a), Adam Hadwin, Roger Sloan, Eugene Wong (a), Matt Hill, Nick Taylor, Chris Baryla, Matt McQuillan, Dustin Risdon, Brian Hutton, David Hearn, Mike Weir, Dave Bunker (a), Stephen Ames, Brad Fritsch, Darren Wallace, and Mitch Evanecz (a).
