For the second time at the Canadian Men’s Senior Championship in Medicine Hat, Alta., play has been suspended due to strong winds leading to unplayable conditions. Players that were unable to complete their first rounds on Tuesday due to suspension of play did so on Wednesday morning.
The same windy conditions experienced on the competition’s first day returned on day two and forced play to be suspended at 3:30 p.m. MDT.
The third round has been cancelled and the competition will be reduced to 54 holes. “It is unfortunate that we have had to shorten the championship, but we wanted to ensure that the tournament is fair to all players. Resuming the second round (Thursday) will provide optimal playing conditions for the field,” said tournament director Mary Beth McKenna.
“It was a difficult decision, but we concluded it wouldn’t be feasible to complete 72 holes due to limited amounts of daylight and time,” she added.
Results as of Wednesday evening are here.
