On Friday night Manotick’s Brad Fritsch was remarking about how hard golf could be. Two days later and the game must be starting to feel easy again after an exceptional weekend at the Canadian Tour’s Players Cup.
Fritsch, 32, and now living in North Carolina, set an impressive pace after just slipping past the cut line and into the weekend of play in Winnipeg.
On Saturday the long bomber posted his 6th ace of his golf career on his way to a 65. That tied him for low round of the day and vaulted him up the board.
More impressive still was that he matched that 65 at the Pine Ridge Golf Club on Sunday, ultimately pushing him into a tie for third place in the tournament. It netted him nearly $10,000 of the event’s $200,000 purse.
Over the same two days Kingstonian Brad Revell also took the opportunity to play well after making just his second cut of the 2011 Canadian Tour campaign. The Tour rookie posted 68 and 69 over the weekend to earn a share of 25th place and take home a cheque of just under $1900. It is his best finish on the Canadian Tour to date.
