Ken Tarling of Sandford, Ont., posted a three-under-par 68 to tie Calgary’s Scott Allred going into Friday’s final round of the Mr. Lube Canadian PGA Seniors’ Championship at King’s Riding Golf Club in King City, Ont.
“I played pretty well today. The birdie on the second hole set me off to a good start,” said Tarling, the winner of the 2001 Canadian PGA Club Professionals Championship. “I used my hybrid to get the ball over the water, pitching it close to the pin, then making a five-foot putt for birdie.
As Tarling posted his second consecutive 68, Allred stayed tied for the lead after shooting a one-under 70 on Thursday, when he bogeyed the second hole, but went on to birdie four holes on the front nine and another on the back, but he bogeyed 14 and double bogeyed 18.
Dave Bell of Windsor, Ont., won the Super Seniors (60 and up) division.
