Ultimately just two strokes separated Gatineau’s Marc-Etienne Bussieres from the final round at this week’s NGA Hooters Tour Bridgestone Winter Series event in Florida.
On Wednesday the three-time Quebec Amateur of the player of the year added a second round 73 to his opening 71, not quite enough to make the grouping of forty players and ties that will complete the tournament on Thursday.
Among those making the cut are a couple Canadians who have a real shot at the winning check tomorrow. Matt Hill of Bright’s Grove, Ontario and Stuart Anderson of Alberta are just two shots of the lead of Will Wilcox who is at eight under par.
Anderson won a Winter Series event this past December.
