A Duncan golfer enjoys one-shot lead after 54 holes of GolfBC Championship

Davison grabs GolfBC lead

Callum Davison will enjoy a one-shot lead entering Saturday's final round of the GolfBC Championship.

The 21-year-old Duncan pro emerged from a five-way tie on moving day to assume the one-shot advantage following 54 holes of the Mackenzie Tour - PGA Tour Canada stop at Gallagher's Canyon Golf and Country Club.

Davison fired a three-under 68 under ideal conditions Friday for a three day total of 11-under 202.

He's one shot better than Canadian Brendan Leonard and two clear of three others.

Davison was part of a five-man logjam atop the leaderboard entering Friday's third round.

He carded five birdies, including four on the opening nine on his way to the three under day. But, it was a birdie on the home hole that vaulted him into the lead.

Davison is looking for his second win on tour, after capturing the Brudenell River Classic in PEI three weeks ago.

Leonard, also part of the five-way tie after round two, fired a two-under 69 to come in at -10, 203. He did manage to work his way to 11 under, but a bogey on 17 dropped him back into second place.

Abbotsford native Zach Olson shot himself into contention with the best round of the day, a six-under 65 to join that group of three at -9, just two shots back.

After an opening round 73, Olson has reeled off rounds of 66 and 65 to join the hunt.

Second round co-leader Yi Cao and Will Barnett of Australia joined Olson at -9, 204.

Cao carded a third round 70 while Barnett fired a four-under 67.

Etienne Brault, who held at least a share of the lead after the first two rounds struggled on the back nine Friday.

Brault was five-over on the final nine to come in at plus four, 75 to fall seven off the pace.

Sixteen-year-old Kelowna native Cooper Humphreys also struggled on moving day.

Humphreys shot a five-over 76 to sit a plus four through three rounds.

Noah Steele of Victoria, who has a win and a second place finish under his belt this summer, is top amateur, also at four-under.

The final round tees off at 9:10 a.m. Saturday.
