Tyler Weworski of Carlsbad, Calif., maintained a four-shot lead at the Canadian Tour Fall Qualifying School Thursday, shooting a one-over 73 at Crosswinds Golf and Country Club in Burlington, Ont.
Weworski made five birdies and six bogeys and sits at 10 under par with one round to go, four ahead of Neil Johnson of River Falls, Wi.
“I didn’t have my best stuff today, but I hung in there and kept it in front of me,” said Weworski, who was three-under par through four holes, but made four bogeys in his final seven. “I’m looking forward to resetting for tomorrow.”
Johnson, meanwhile, put together a round of 72 that put him alone in second place at six under.
One shot back was Evan Harmeling of Andover, Me., , who fired a 70, while Billy Houle of Joilette, Que., finished a shot further back at four under after a 73.
The rounds of the day belonged to Ben Moser of Waterloo, Ont., and Dan Bowling of Mooretown, Ont., who both shot three-under 69s. The cool, windy conditions at Crosswinds saw just two players break 70, and just 10 players break par on the 7,240-yard layout.
The top 15 players will receive exempt status on the Canadian Tour for 2013, while the next 15 and ties will receive non-exempt status. The current cut for exempt cards is three over, while the number for non-exempt cards is eight over.
The final round of the Fall Qualifying School begins Friday morning.
