Boyle Climbs Leaderboard at Canadian Tour Q-School

Kingston, Ontario Brad Boyle make a strong move up the leaderboard at Canadian Tour Qualifying School in Burlington, Ontario on Wednesday.

The twenty-one year old who turned pro at The Great Waterway Classic earlier this month bettered his day one score by 9 strokes in posting a second round 68. The four-under par total was aided by six birdies including ones on each of his three opening holes.

He will begin play on Thursday in a tie for 11th place with an eye on the top 15 by the end of play on Friday. At the completion of the 72 holes those players will receive full playing privileges for the 2013 Canadian Tour. The next 15 players will earn conditional (non-exempt) status.

Ottawa’s Andrew Jensen added a 74 to his opening 76 and his 150 total has him in card contention with a share of 29th.

Another Ottawa golfer, Jeremiah Shields, had a rough day. The 30 year-old who shared 7th place after an opening 72 plummeted down the leaderboard after an 82. He is now tied for 45th place.

Cumberland, Ontario’s Ryan Ellis is in 60th alone after scores of 85 and 79.

Leading the way at the tournament is Tyler Weworski of Carlsbard, California. His second round of 65 catapulted him into a six-stroke lead for the medalist title at -11.

“I’ve been playing good coming up to this week,” said Weworski, who was tied for the first-round leader after a 68 on Tuesday. “Today the putter awoke a little bit. The wind was down and it’s fun to put two good rounds together.”

The former Texas Tech Red Raider, who recently made it through the first stage of PGA TOUR Qualifying School, said he hopes to secure his status on the Canadian Tour with an aggressive gameplan this week.

“I’m going to try and win it. I don’t want to have any kind of weak attitude, so I’m going to try and be aggressive and win the tournament,” said the 22-year old.
