Seniors Brodie Flanders (Fawcett Hill, New Brunswick) and Shawn LaFontaine (Cobourg, Ontario) made it through the two-day, 36-hole stroke-play rounds to continue in the tournament.

Flanders fared the better of the two, carding a 2-under 70 on the 7,037-yard course Monday to give himself a two-round total of 146 and finish tied for 33rd.

LaFontaine combined rounds of 75 and 72, finishing one stroke behind Flanders in a tie for 40th.

Andrew Parr (London, Ontario) was the stroke-play medalist. Parr established himself as the man to beat heading into match play after firing rounds of 67 and 66 to finish with a four-stroke lead at 11 under par.

Flanders squares off against James Chan (Ancaster, Ontario) at 8:39 a.m. CDT and LaFontaine faces Jay Snyder (Vancouver, B.C.) at 8:57 a.m. in the first round of match play.
