Jonathan Garrick of Atherton, Calif., is the second-round leader of the Canadian Men’s Amateur championship today after his two-under-par 68 at Elmhurst Golf and Country Club this morning.
Garrick opened with a six-under 66 at Southwood on Monday and stands at eight-under 134 through two days.
He played a bogey-free round on Monday and had an eagle, two birdies, and a double bogey at Elmhurst today.
The UCLA student, originally from Chicago, finished his round with an uphill birdie at No. 9, Elmhurst’s normal No. 18.
Through today’s early wave, Garrick’s advantage is two shots over Southwood’s Bret Thompson, who shot 68 on his home course today to get to six-under-par. He shares that spot with Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., who was 68 at Elmhurst today, and Blair Hamilton of Burlington, Ont., who shot 68 at Southwood.
First-round co-leader Brian Bullington of Frankfort, Ill, was 66 at Southwood on Monday and is out at Elmhurst this afternoon.
