KOSTER-2

 

 

 

Greg Koster of Courtenay is in ninth place heading into the third and final round of play at the British Columbia Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship at Ledgeview Golf Club in Abbotsford.

The Sunnydale Golf Club member shot a second consecutive round of three-over 73 on Wednesday to sit at 146, five shots back of leader Andrew Robb of Vancouver, who is one-under 139 after rounds of 71 and 68.

Koster is the defending Master-40 age  division and is sixth in that age grouping, four shots back of co-leaders Greg Bismeyer (73-69) of Pitt Meadows and Kris Yardley (69-73) of Maple Ridge. Koster’s second round included three birdies and six bogeys, the same as his first round.

Robert McLellan of Courtenay was in a four-way tie for 64th place after round two. He was at 21-over 161 following rounds of 87 and 74.

Robb, a recently eligible Mid-Amateur competitor, had an inconsistent but  impressive second round that featured five birdies, one eagle and five bogeys. He is currently the only player under-par for the championship, sitting in the red by one number.

First-round leader Yardley followed up his opening-round 69 with a three-over-par 73 Wednesday, bringing him into a tie for second at 142 with fellow Fraser Valley Zone 3 player Bismeyer.

Bismeyer rebounded from an opening round 73 with an efficient one-under-par 69 that featured three birdies and two bogeys. All three players will be teeing off in today’s final grouping.

 

The Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship features two divisions: The Mid-Amateur  for those between the ages 25-39 and the Master-40 for those over 40. All players compete in the overall individual competition.

A cut to the low 25 players at 158 or better was made in the Mid-Amateur division following round two. A cut to the low 45 at 163 or better was made in the Master-40 division following Wednesday’s second round.

Players will be going off split-tee starts Thursday starting at 7:30 a.m. For complete results, visit bcga.bluegolf.com. To follow along on social media, use the official hashtag #BCMidAm.
