Canadian Men’s Amateur tees off today in Windsor

15th hole, Ambassador Golf Club, Windsor, Ont.

The Canadian Men’s Amateur is underway in Windsor, Ont. with a handful of Saskatchewan players competing at the event.

The 72-hole tournament returns for the first time since 2019, after the pandemic caused the cancellation of Golf Canada’s 2020 competitive season.

Saskatchewan’s record breaking champion Roman Timmerman leads the provincial contingent into Ambassador Golf Club starting this holiday Monday. Also competing from Saskatchewan is Josh Nagy (Saskatoon), Chase Pochylko (Saskatoon), Ty Campbell (Saskatoon), Kade Johnson (Yorkton), and Tyler Wright (Regina).

The winner will receive an exemption into the 2022 RBC Canadian Open from June 6-12 at St George’s Golf & Country Club in Toronto, Ont. and the 2021 U.S. Amateur from August 9-15 at Oakmont Country Club & Longue Vue Club in Oakmont & Verona, Pa.

The 2019 Canadian Men’s Amateur Champion was William Buhl from Norway.

Ambassador Golf Club was designed by architect Thomas McBroom. It is a par-71 public golf course that has hosted many previous provincial, national, and professional championships including the Windsor Championship on the PGA TOUR Canada – Mackenzie Tour in 2018 and 2019, the Golf Ontario Men’s Amateur Championship in 2017, the Golf Ontario Ladies Amateur Championship in 2016, and the OUA Golf Championships in 2016.

The Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship is a 72-hole stroke play event, with a 36-hole cut for the low 70 players and ties. In the event of a tie at the end of four rounds, there will be a hole-by-hole playoff immediately following completion of 72-holes.
