The field has been trimmed down to 36 golfers as round three of the 2014 Saskatchewan Amateur Men’s golf championship wrapped up on Wednesday at Cooke Municipal Golf Course. 

Heading into Thursday’s fourth and final round, Prince Albert’s Martin Ring sits tied for the leaderboard’s No . 1 spot with Unity’s Justin Wood after shooting a 70-stroke round on Wednesday. 

Following an impressive 69-stroke round on Tuesday, Ring dropped four birdies in round three on the 6,299-yeard, par-73 course as he sits deadlocked for first place with 210 strokes through three rounds of play.

Ring overtook fellow Prince Albert golfer Clayton Mullis as the top local performer in the tournament.

Mullis entered round three in a tie for second place, however, after a 75-stroke round three, the Prince Albert product finds himself in a tie with Levi McDermott for sixth place. 

As the field was cut in half following Wednesday’s action, Ring, Mullis, Cam Bergen and Brett Henry are the only Prince Albert golfers remaining in the tournament, which includes competitors from Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

Since 2000, no player born outside of Saskatchewan has won the tournament with the last three champions; David Stewart, Tyler Frank and Troy Bulmer all hailing from Saskatoon. 

Other Prince Albert golfers hitting their hometown links at Cooke include; Danny Klughart (T19th), Travis Jenkins (79th), Justin Paradis (T42nd), Cory Selander (T19th), Zach Hurd (T22nd), Brett Henry (T4th) and Cory Sawchuk (T56th).

Defending his title, Stewart shot a 71-stroke round as he enters round four in third place.

Cooke last hosted the Amateur Championship in 2007 when Stewart’s father Ron took home his third provincial title. 

Ron Stewart was competing alongside his son in the 103rd edition of the tournament, shooting a second straight 78 round on Wednesday, eliminating him from round four.

The 72-hole, four-round tournament continues with the final round on Thursday with the first group teeing off at 7 a.m.
