Jr. national course hones Bailey for Simon Fraser Open

Cody Bailey was hoping he'd have four rounds of tournament golf behind him this week when he gets back to swing his clubs at Prince George Golf and Curling Club Saturday afternoon at Simon Fraser Open.
Bailey, 18, started the week on the other side of the country, teeing off at the Canadian junior boys championship in Hartland, N.B. But after shooting 78 on Monday and 74 on Tuesday on the Par 72 Covered Bridge Golf and Country Club, Bailey missed the cut.
His two-round eight-over 152 total ended Bailey's championship ambitions and he finished 115th in a field of 154.
Christopher Vandette of Beaconsfield, Que., holds a two-shot lead over Jeevan Sohota of Victoria heading into Thursday's final round. Vandette, who won the tournament in 2018, is at 13-under after three rounds (62-69-72--203), while Sihota is at 11-under (68-69-68--205). Brady McKinlay of Lacombe, Alta. (72-70-65--207) and Carter Graf of Sylvan Lake, Alta. (67-68-72--207) were tied for third place.
Bailey, a native of Terrace, is expected back to Prince George in time for the two-round men's Simon Fraser Open, which has 83 golfers entered. Friday's opening tee time is at 1 p.m. The tournament resumes Sunday at 8 a.m.
Trevor Metcalf of Vanderhoof, 31, is the defending champion. Last year, he won the title for the fourth time in five years, carding a four-under 69-68-137. Bailey ended up six strokes behind (70-73-143) and finished in a three-way tie for fifth place.
