Niagara Gazette — “We had to pump a few bunkers this morning that flooded and don’t have great drainage, but our grounds superintendent and his staff as always did a great job in preparing the course.”
For Daniel Yustin of East Amherst, just being here was an exciting opportunity, even if he had to battle through some early cool winds and moisture. He had just missed making the Porter Cup in the qualifier. When others originally scheduled to play backed out, he was back in.
“The course dried up pretty good,” said Yustin, who teed off in the first group at 8 a.m. Wednesday. “From the fairway I had to take casual water twice, but the course played really well.”
