Things are heating up this week in Louisiana on the Nationwide Tour.
At the halfway point of the Chitimacha Louisiana Open Camillo Benedetti leads the field at 13 under par while at least one Canadian is not far behind.
Abbotsford, B.C.’s Adam Hadwin matched the leader for low round of the day on Friday with a 63, eight under par. That puts Hadwin, the second-ranked Canadian player in the world, three strokes back of the lead at 10 under par. He shares third place.
The fourth ranked Canadian in the world, Matt McQuillan of Kingston, Ontario, shares 27th place through two rounds after posting 67, 69. His 2nd round would have been stronger had he not made bogey on two of his last four holes. His scorecard was blemish free to that point on the day.
Richard Scott of Kingsville, Ontario shares 38th place at 5 under par overall.
Also making the cut at Le Tromphe GC in Lafayette was Manotick, Ontario’s favourite golf son, Brad Fritsch. Brad is tied for 54th place after rounds of 70 and 68.
Fellow Canadians Stuart Anderson and Ryan Yip missed the 36 hole cut.
