Koster fires opening round 76

Courtenay golfer at Point Grey for Canadian Men's Mid-Amateur tourney

Kevin Carrigan of Victoria carded an opening-round score of 5-under par 67 to sit atop the leaderboard after round one of the 2012 Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship at Point Grey Golf & Country Club in Vancouver.

Carrigan, the reigning B.C. Mid-Amateur champion, posted six birdies on the day to go along with an eagle on Point Grey’s 18th hole, a par-5. The tourney runs Sept. 4-7.

Greg Koster of Courtenay shot a first-round 4-over 76 on Tuesday and was in an eight-way tie for 22nd. That put him in a three-way tie for seventh in the Mid-Master Division of the tournament. The Sunnydale golfer had one eagle and five bogeys on his first trip around the 6,807-yard, par 72 course.

Saskatoon’s Tyler Frank and Calgary’s Jordan Irwin sat T2 at even-par 72, while Chris Moore of Vancouver, Mark Elgner of Toronto, Allan Stanley of Windsor and Bryan Scott of Victoria were T4 at 1-over par 73.

Three-time Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur champion Dave Bunker of Woodbridge, Ont. was T8 at 2-over par 74, while defending champion Rob Couture of Trenton, Ont., now a resident of Dallas, Tex., was T22 at 4-over par 76, nine shots off the lead.

Allan Stanley of Windsor, Ont. held a one-stroke lead in the Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship Mid-Master Division over Bunker and Victoria’s Craig Doell.

The 2012 Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship continued Wednesday.  At the conclusion of play on Wednesday, the field was cut to the low 70 players and ties and Golf Canada also crowned the 2012 Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship Inter-Provincial Team Champion.

The 2012 Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship winner will earn an exemption into the 2013 RBC Canadian Open at the historic Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont.
