Ashburn’s Trevor Chow was spared a final-round fight on his way to the Nova Scotia Golf Association mid-amateur championship yesterday at the Chester Golf Club.
Rain forced the cancellation of the final round and Chow — who shot rounds of 71 and 74 en route to a two-day 5-over 145 — was awarded the title. The 32-year-old from Bedford placed sixth at last year’s mid-amateur at Clare.
It might not have mattered anyway. Kinsac’s Ross McNeil was four strokes back, while Jody Swim of River Hills (72-78-150) and Chris Evans of Ashburn (77-74-151) finished third and fourth to round out the provincial team.
Defending champ Aaron Nickerson of River Hills was 10 strokes back after firing 10-over 80 on Day 2.
The Canadian mid-amateur championship will be held in Prince Albert, Sask., from Aug. 17 to 21.
