Fugere Tied For 17th At Canadian Seniors

Simson Leads Opening Round At Canadian Men’s Senior Championship

– Team British Columbia Takes 6-Stroke Lead Into Final Round of Inter-provincial Play –

St. Thomas, Ont. (Golf Canada) – Paul Simson of Raleigh, NC fired a 3-under par 69 today to take the  opening-round lead at the 2010 Canadian Men’s Senior Championship at St. Thomas Golf & Country Club.

Simson comes to the tournament having played 46 career USGA championships and will compete in two more before the end of the year. He has also competed in five British Senior Amateur Championships, and won three times, including earlier this season. Additionally, he will play in the 2010 USGA State Team Championship on Team North Carolina, September 14-16 in California.

“I got up and down from a bad spot on three, made about a four footer,” said Simson. “Made about a 15-footer on 5 for birdie. 34 on the back nine and 35 on the front nine for 69 – not a bad start – the greens are slick, really special.”

St. Thomas’s fairways are proving quite a challenge for many of the players with only 9 of the 154 competitors shot even par or better today.

Sitting in second place is Howard Broun of Calgary, Alt., who was in the lead most of the day. Broun finished 1-stroke behind Simson with 2-under par 70. Four time champion Graham Cooke of Hudson, Que., is tied for third with  Terry Townend of St-Lazare, Que., Michael Mealia of Thornhill, Ont., Gary Melanson of Woodstock, N.B., Gudmand Lindbjerg of Port Moody, B.C., , Alan Fadel of Toledo, OH, Dave Raabis, Rocky Mountain House, Alt., and Garry Spence of London, Ont.

Bob Fugere of Gatineau is the leading player from the National Capital Region.  He is tied for 17th after round 1.

In inter-provincial team championship play, defending champion British Columbia heads into final round of play tomorrow with a team total of 226 and a 6-stroke lead over Team Nova Scotia, 232. In third is Team Quebec with a first round total of 233. Host Team Ontario is in eighth place with 237.

In the Super Senior Division (70+ years) Townend leads with an even par 72; Phillip Leckey of Tampa, FL with 5-over par 77 heads into tomorrow’s round in second place; and tied for third are Ontarians Albert Dietrich of Kitchener, Donald White of London, Norman Goldman of Toronto, and British Columbian Larry Lecomte of Richmond. All shot 9-over par 81.

The Canadian Men’s Senior Champion will earn an exemption into the USGA Senior Championship at Lake Nona Golf & Country Club, October 2-7, in Orlando, FL.
