MISSISSAUGA, Ontario (8/8/17) – Competing in the 113th Canadian Men's Amateur Championship, Arkansas State seniors Tanner Napier and Andrew Huseman completed the four-day golf tournament's second round Tuesday at the Toronto Golf Club in Mississauga, Ontario.
Napier is currently tied for fourth place and will advance to Wednesday's third round, while Huseman narrowly missed the cut by one stroke. The winner of the Canadian Men's Amateur Championship earns an exemption into the 2018 RBC Canadian Open and 2017 U.S. Amateur.
Monday's opening round saw Napier card a 69 before coming back today to post a 65, giving the Paris, Texas, native a 5-under 134 through 36 holes played. The two-time All-Sun Belt Conference selection is currently tied with Shintaro Ban (San Jose, Calif.) and trails three players, including Camilo Aguado (Colombia), Stratton Nolen (Austin, Texas) and Hugo Bernard (Mon-Saint-Hilaire, Quebec, Canada), by only one stroke.
A 2016 All-Sun Belt pick, Huseman recorded a 74 and 71 for the first and second rounds, respectively, to give him a combined 5-over 145. The total left the Ankeny, Iowa, native one stroke behind 16 players who are currently tied for 61st place and among those advancing to the final two rounds.
