It took some extra time but Gatineau’s Marc-Etienne Bussieres made the 36 hole cut at this week’s National Golf Association Pro Tour event in Florida.
After posting an even par round of 72 on day one of the tournament on what was formerly known as the Hooters Tour, Bussieres’ second round was halted by darkness as he played the back nine last night.
He finished up strongly this morning to eventually post a four under par round of 68, putting him one stroke inside the cutline of -3. He shares 27th place with 7 other golfers.
They are all trying to catch Florida resident Brian Richey who leads the event at an impressive 15 under par, a result of rounds of 66 and 63.
The final round of the 54-hole tournament runs today, Thursday.
Two Canadian, Riley Wheeldon, of Comox, B.C., and Yohann Benson of Montreal, start the final round within the top ten.
