Heavy rains in Alberta, Canada reduced the 54-hole Glencoe Invitational to a 36-hole event. Perhaps the day off gave Thomas Giroux a day to recharge. After an opening 73, the Ontario native rebounded with a final-round 67 and at 5 under, won the event by two shots.

Giroux had two birdies and two bogeys over the four opening holes at Glencoe Country Club to remain even. He had back-to-back birdies at Nos. 7 and 8, then made three more birdies on the back from Nos. 13-16. His 5-under final round moved him ahead of first-round co-leaders Briggs Duce and Andrew Harrison.

Giroux will be a junior at Oakland University in the fall. He has garnered three top-10 finishes in college events.

Jesse Galvon of Calgary finished solo fourth at 1 under, followed by Etienne Papineau in fifth. Papineau is the defending champion in this event.
