Eger Takes Over Lead In California; Fritsch Just Two Back

Saskatchewan’s Kent Eger jumped to the head of the pack on Friday at the Canadian Tour’s Desert Dunes Classic.  On a day that saw the temperatures drop and the wind gusts buffet the California Desert Eger shot his second straight score of 69, 3 under par, to take the lead alone at six under par.

First round leader Stuart Anderson piled a 75 on top of his opening 64 to share second place with three other players with two rounds to play.

Just one stroke back of that foursome is former Manotick, Ontario resident Brad Fritsch.  The soon-to-be 34 year-old shot his second 70 of the tournament to sit at 4 under par and in a tie for 6th place.

Brad Revell of Kingston, Ontario failed to make the cut by just two strokes after shooting 72 and 78.

Not all players were able to finish their round on Friday but it appears there will be no significant delay for Saturday’s third round.

Defending Champion Adam Hadwin is tied with Brad Fritsch and three other players in the 6th place tie.
