Hall, Eccles lead rain-delayed Canadian Amateur
TORONTO, Canada — Gavin Hall of Pittsford, N.Y. and Ben Eccles of Australia posted 66 on day one at the Canadian Amateur, and share the lead during a suspended round one in Toronto.
“Unfortunately, inclement weather and unplayable conditions have delayed the completion of the first round of play,” said Tournament Director Adam Helmer. “We are hopeful that the weather will hold for the ensuing rounds and that we will be able to complete the 72-hole national championship.”
More than half the field has yet to finish their first round, with a large chunk of players still on their opening nine.
The first round of play will resume on the morning of Tuesday, August 11 at 7:30 a.m. EDT and round two tee times will be adjusted due to time restrictions resulting from the suspension of the first round.
