POINTE-CLAIR, Quebec, Canada - -
UTA senior golfer Jordan Krantz (Vermillion Bay, Canada) slipped with back-to-back bogeys on the back nine of his round -- the par-3 no. 4 hole and the par-5 no. 5 hole -- to slip to a tie for 40th place with a two-over-par 72 on the opening day of the 100th Canadian Amateur Championship at Beaconsfield Golf Club here on Monday.
Yohann Benson of Pincout, Quebec, took advantage of perfect conditions in the day's first group to shoot a four-under-par 66 and take a share of the lead with Ryan Vallely of Medicine Hat, Alberta.
Krantz qualified for the championship after winning the Manitba Amateur Championship July 22 at the Pinawa Golf Club. He rallied with five birdies over six holes to win by one shot over reigning Canadian mid-amateur champion Garth Collings.
