Rough day a costly one for Smith

Camiko Smith put in a decent effort at this week’s Mandarin Tour event in Richmond Hill, Ontario.

The Bermuda golfer finished tied for nineteenth in a field of 54 with a two-day total of three-over-par 145.

Smith got off to a flying start after firing an opening round three-under 68 at the Diamond Back Golf Club that included four birdies and a bogey.

However, all of his hard work in the first round came undone in the second, which was riddled with five bogeys and two double bogeys that offset three birdies.

“It was a rough day,” Smith said. “But it’s over and I am looking forward to the next event.”

Russell Budd, of Toronto, came from behind to win the 36-hole tournament by three shots over second-place finisher Michael Gligic.

Smith went into this week’s Mandarin Tour event fresh off a solid third-place showing at the Southern Ontario Open.

In his next tournament, Smith will tee off next week in a Great Lakes Tour event at the Blue Spring Golf Club in Ontario.
