The 16-year-old shot 77 on day one of the event at the Medicine Hat Golf and Country Club. He fired a 73 during the second round climbing to a tie for 61st place. Friedrich’s plus-8 was right at the cut line of the 156 player field. He will tee-off at 8:58 a.m. Wednesday for round three of four.
A handful of other Saskatchewan golfers didn’t make the final couple days of the championship. Bradley Moser (Saskatoon) shot 14-over (79, 77); Connor Scissons (Saskatoon) shot 77 and 83. Steven Duchscher (Saskatoon) fired back-to-back 80’s, he tied Scissons at plus-18.
