KAMLOOPS -- Rivershore Golf Links was once home for Brent Pound, who literally grew up on the course he says he has probably played a couple thousand times. On Wednesday, Pound put all that local knowledge to good use as he grabbed a share of the second-round lead at the 116th playing of the B.C. Amateur Championship.
The 26-year-old, still a resident of Kamloops, but now a member at Kamloops Golf & Country Club, fired the low round of the day -- a five-under 67 -- that moved him to eight-under par and into a tie with Patrick Murphy of Calgary.
“I lived on the third hole from when I was 12 to 19,” Pound said. “I made double-bogey on that hole yesterday. You’d think I would have an advantage on it, but apparently not. I got my (par) four today and ran off to the fourth tee.”
