Beers in tough to make cut

It’ll be a tough climb for Brian Beers to make the cut at the Canadian Club Champions Championship.
Heading into third-round play today, the Kitchen Creek men’s champ finds himself about 13 shots out of 70th place with a 27-over 169 after two rounds at the par-71 Whistler Golf Course.
The top 70 scores (including ties) among the 120-golfer field of club champions from across Canada after today’s round will move on to the final round tomorrow.
Beers improved from Tuesday’s first round score of 87 by carding an 82 yesterday.
Two-time defending champ Craig Doell of Victoria once again leads the way with a 138 total 138, holding a one-shot lead over Brad Pemberton (Port Hope) and Travis Inlow (Calgary).
The CCCC is Beers’ first national amateur tournament.
In related news, the Kitchen Creek Junior Open scheduled for Saturday has been postponed due to the lack of playing time juniors have had in the wake of the recently flooding.
“We just want to give it a while longer so they can get more rounds in,” said assistant club pro Brian Johnstone, who heads weekend lessons with the younger golfers.
A new date has yet to be announced.
Meanwhile, the Seven Generations tournament will tee off tomorrow at 9 a.m. The four-man team scramble event still had about six-eight openings left as of this morning.
For those interested in registering, cost is $400 per team, and can be done by calling the club (274-4653) or co-organizer Sean Taggart (274-4267).
