Burke goes for eGolf title
Cam Burke of New Hamburg, Ontario hasn’t scored a win in two years on the eGolf tour, but he’s about ready to change that at the Founders Club Classic. The elusive first win could very well be available tomorrow, as rounds of 69-69—138 (6-under) have placed him one shot clear of the field with just 18 holes to play.
“The wind was pretty tough early on as it was in a different direction than yesterday,” said Burke, who was 1-over par through five holes on Day 2. “It got easier after that, but there’s no real let up in the golf course, so you just have to grind it out.”
