Pauls survives second-round cut at Amateur Golf Championship

Chilliwack's Aaron Pauls made it through to third round play while Matt Gudmundson and Scott Benstead saw their tournament end.

Chilliwack’s Aaron Pauls is tied for 34th through two rounds of the BC Amateur Golf Championship.

Pauls, a standout with the University of the Fraser Valley golf team, fired two-over-par 73s yesterday and today. His second round included bogies on the first, fourth, ninth, 12th and 14th holes.

But he finished well, carding back-to-back birdies on the 17th and 18th holes.

Pauls is 14 strokes off the overall lead, held by Victoria golfer Kevin Carrigan.

Chilliwack natives Matt Gudmundson and Scott Benstead also made the trip, but they won’t be playing on day three after missing the cut.

Gudmunson followed a first-round 77 with a second round 81 to end up 16 over par.

Benstead struggled to a 79 and 82, finishing 19 over.

The tournament is being played on two golf courses, the Springs Course at Radium (in Radium Springs) and the Copper Point Golf Club (in Windermere).
