Grube in 2nd after three rounds in his pro debut on Canada Tour
Here are quotes from Rob Grube after his 3rd round 72 leaving him in 2nd place two shots out of the lead in his professional debut.
“I’m looking forward to tomorrow,” said Bradford. “I don’t know Rob Grube but I know he’s a heck of a player.
“It’s been a while since I’ve been in the last group of the day. I worked on a few things before coming onto the Canadian part of the Tour and it’s working well for me.”
Grube, like Bradford, had to fight the wind all day in an up and down round of 72.
“I got off to a good start with two birdies but then seemed to trade birdies and bogeys the rest of the day,” said Grube.
“I was still trying to make birdies out there and missed a few eight-footers so that got a little frustrating.
“I don’t have a number in mind for tomorrow,” revealed Grube.
“If the wind is like this on Sunday, even par on the round will be a good score. The wind made this course a lot more difficult today – well, except for George.”
Here are complete third day results.
Rob Grube, recent Stanford graduate and 4-time All-American, made his professional debut a memorable one firing a 9-under par 63 on the Canadian Tour. With a 2nd round 68 Rob is tied for the lead at 13 under par. The event, the Saskatchewan Open is being held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
Jim Seki from the class of 2002 is also in the field shooting an even par 70 in his first round. A second round 66 moves Jim into a tie for 16th at 6-under par.
Rob reports that his summer pro golf plans are still evolving but this encouraging start to his pro career can only help create opportunities.
