The Knights men’s golf team continued to struggle with their short game as they failed to make a move on the three leaders here at the second round of the 2012 PING CCAA Golf National Championship in Oshawa.
On a day which was perfect for golf, the Knights shot a team total of 306 which was three strokes higher than the day before for a fourth place tie of 609. They saw leaders Humber College improve by 10 shots for a total of 562, while Durham College jumped into second place with a score of 299 an improvement of three strokes. Camosun College (BC) also made a move after the second round with a team score of 296 which was an improvement of 10 strokes for a third place finish.
Individually, team captain Chad Currie was the only Knight to improve on yesterdays round from 81 to 77 but remains at a +14. Like his teammates, Currie had numerous birdie putt opportunities but just failed to finish. Robert Ellis is Mr. consistent for the Knights as she shot a second round 74 and is 4 four strokes over par, while Wlaker Arnott who was tied with Ellis after the first round at 74 is 6 strokes over par. Cole Kent added four more strokes to his total and currently sits at plus 10.
Niagara will get the third and final round underway on Oct. 19 morning as they try to move up the ladder and go home with a medal.
