Cadmus Delorme of Regina will take a two-shot lead into the final day of the 36-hole Conexus Lobstick Open today at the Waskesiu Lake Golf Course.
Delorme fired an impressive three-under-par 67 on Monday to register the low round of the day and Ted Bach of Saskatoon was the only other amateur to shoot under par in the opening round as his 69 on Monday leaves him two shots in arrears.
Club professional Ryan Danberg had a 68, but is not eligible to win the title, while Scott McKay of Saskatoon will round out the final foursome as he recorded an even-par 70 on Monday.
Also in at even par is Prince Albert’s Greg Swenson, the winner of the May Day Masters last month at Cooke Municipal Golf Course. Tyler Zaba of Regina and Ashley Ziegeman of Prince Albert are next at 71 followed by Warren Gnam of Medicine Hat, Scott Pinder of Waskesiu Lake and Andrew Zaba of Regina, all with two-over 72s.
Brad Phelps of Saskatoon is alone at 73 while two-time Lobstick Amateur champion Martin Ring of Prince Albert fired a 75. Another Prince Albert golfer, Cliff Selander, had a 76 while two-time Senior Lobstick champion Colin Coben from Delisle had a 77.
In addition to the first day of the Lobstick Open, qualifying for the match-play Conexus Lobstick Amateur also took place on Monday with the remainder of the qualifying rounds hitting the course today, grouped around the final round of the Open.
Match play in all flights begins on Wednesday with play continuing through the week. Flight finals will be played on Saturday.
