ANDREW PARR WINS MEDALIST HONOURS AT CANADIAN MEN'S AMATEUR

Final seven seeds determined in a playoff Attention: Sports Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor BADDECK--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 15, 2005) - Andrew Parr of London, Ont. fired a scorching six-under 66 Monday at Bell Bay Golf Club to take medalist honours and the top seed for match play at the 101st playing of the Canadian Men's Amateur Championship, conducted by the Royal Canadian Golf Association (RCGA).

"I don't know what to say, it was a great couple of rounds," said Parr, who finished with a two-day score of 11-under par. "I was hitting greens and making my putts and just trying to stay patient. I wasn't looking for great shots, more trying to focus on hitting a lot of good shots. Now it's match play and I'm just going to stick to my game and go after birdies where I can."

In the day's most exciting finish, the final seven match play seeds were decided on a second playoff hole. With eight players tied at six-over par and the final seven seeds up for grabs, Kevin Crozier of Charlottetown, PE, Keven Fortin-Simard of Roberval, QC, Patrik Ericson of Langley, BC, Oscar Fraustro of San Antonio, TX, Andrew An of Richmond Hill, ON, Jordan Irwin of Calgary, AB, Peter Malo of Beaconsfield, QC and James Latta of St.Clements, ON squared off in search of seeds. On the second playoff hole with darkness looming, Ericson found trouble off the tee and struggled out of the rough at Bell Bay before bowing out of the championship.

Bell Bay Golf Club continued to challenge the field as a number of Canada's top players struggled on the challenging Cape Breton layout. Among the notables who failed to advance to the round of 64 were amateur sensation James Lepp of Abbotsford, B.C. and 2004 Canadian Amateur champion Darren Wallace of Langley, B.C.

The opening round of match play gets under way Tuesday morning at 7:30 am with the final 64 competitors set to challenge for Canada's most prestigious amateur golfing title.

Opening round match play pairings, seedings and start times are available at www.rcga.org.
