Winnipeg’s Ryan McMillan is sitting in a medal position at the halfway point of the Canada Summer Games golf tournament.
McMillan opened with a 69 on Tuesday and followed it up with a 72 on Wednesday. That puts him in second place among 33 golfers, five shots back of Quebec’s Christopher Charles Vandette. Manitoba teammate Zach Wytinck is in 13th after rounds of 74-76. The third member of the men’s squad, Morden’s Spencer Norrie, is 24th overall after consecutive rounds of 78.
Overall, the Manitoba men are in fourth place with two rounds left to play at Southwood Golf and Country Club. They are a combined 11 shots behind Quebec, which is leading the event. Manitoba is just four shots back of British Columbia for second place and three back of third-place Alberta.
On the women’s side, Winnipeg’s Camryn Roadley is 12th out of 31 golfers after rounds of 75-81, 13 shots off the lead. Erickson’s Bobbi Uhl is right behind her in 13th with rounds of 74-85, while Winnipegger Rebecca Kuik is 18th after consecutive 84s.
As a team, Manitoba women are in fourth place. But they sit 15 strokes behind Ontario, which currently holds down the bronze medal position.
Play continues today and Friday.
