Nasty mid-autumn weather took its toll on everyone—from the tournament leader to the Muskies’ hopeful and most everyone in between.
Tyson Morrisseau struggled in the inclement conditions to card a second-round 85 yesterday to finish in a three-way tie for 54th place in the 121-golfer field at the OFSAA boys’ golf championship in Windsor.
After an opening round of two-over 74 on Wednesday that had him in a seven-way tie for 15th, the NWOSSAA silver-medalist ballooned to finish 13-over for the day yesterday.
He wound up 15-over for the tournament to tie Cameron Belanger and Nick Fitzpatrick of the Sacred Heart Huskies (Ottawa).
Sam Meek of the Crestwood Mustangs (Peterborough) was one of only four golfers to break par on the day, with his two-under 70 tying him with Tyler Nagano of the Bayview Glen Gryphons (Toronto) at three-under 141 after 36 holes.
Meek then beat Nagano in a playoff to capture the gold medal.
Ben Greaves of the Dundas Valley Gryphons (Dundas) earned bronze after missing the playoff by one stroke following his even-par 72 yesterday.
Eric (Joohyung) Byun of the Richmond Green Rattlers (Richmond Hill), who led the tourney after an opening round 67, suffered the hardest fall in yesterday’s poor conditions.
He carded an 11-over 83 to finish in a tie for 13th.
