Chilliwack golfers struggle at Fairview Mountain

One local didn't make the cut and two finished outside the top 50 at the BC Mens' Amateur Championship.

Matt Gudmundson was the top placing local at the 113th BC Mens’ Amateur Championship, held last week at Oliver’s Fairview Mountain Golf Club.

Representing the Chilliwack Golf Club, Gudmundson tied for 55th at 20 over par, 30 shots off the scorching pace set     by Kimberly native Jared Dutoit.

Dutoit ran away with the tourney title.

He was seven strokes better than Vancouver’s Stuart McDonald, who was the only other golfer to finish below par. Gudmundson carded rounds of 75-70-79-84, highlighted by a second round eagle on the 17th hole.

Connor McLellan finished in a tie for 73rd at 30 over par, an unexpected result for one of the stars of the University of the Fraser Valley mens’ golf team.

He scored rounds of 73-76-88-81.

A third Chilliwackian, Kaleb Fisher, missed the cut after the second round, finishing 21 over with rounds of 78 and 87.
