It’s going to be an
exciting weekend for Weyburn’s Graham DeLaet at the PGA Tour’s Honda
He shot a second round 68 on Friday which puts him at seven under for the tournament. That’s just two shots of the lead held by Luke Guthrie.
The story of the day though belongs to world number one Rory McIlroy.
He walked off the course after eight holes citing a sore wisdom tooth. He also said he wasn’t mentally with it. He was seven over par for the day when he walked off.
Brody McKnight's tour of the CFL continues.
The kicker, who was originally drafted in the first round by the Alouettes in 2011, traded to Edmonton for a first round draft pick in 2012, is now a Saskatchewan Roughrider.
Heading to Edmonton will be a pair of fifth round draft picks. The Riders are also picking up a sixth round draft pick. All of the picks in the deal are for the up-coming CFL Canadian Draft.
The Vancouver native played in only three games last season.
As the old saying goes, better late than never.
The CFL handed out the 2012 Coach of the Year award Thursday in Regina in front of a room filled with executives and employees from across the league.
Not surprisingly when all was said and done, the Argonauts Scott Milanovich was named the winner, after guiding Toronto to the Grey Cup in November. He beat out the Lions Mike Benevides and the Stampeders John Hufnagel for the award.
It’s a good start for Weyburn’s Graham DeLaet at the PGA Tour’s Honda Classic.
He carded a five under 65 to sit in a tie for second place after his first round.
DeLaet got off to a good start putting up four birdies on the front nine. He followed that up with two more birdies and a bogey on the back.
So far this year, DeLaet has won $223,824 which puts him 61st on the money list.
A win this week would get him into this year’s first major: the Masters.

It's been a busy week for CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon.
He's been in Regina for the CFL Congress meeting with all of the business types in the league...but Cohon still isn't too busy to meet with the fans.
Cohon actually spent Wednesday evening meeting fans at the Press Box Sports Bar in Regina.
The CFL regular season is still a few months away, but Regina is a hot spot for the league.
All this week the league's brass are in the Queen City for the CFL Congress, where they've been discussing some of the issues facing the league right now.
A topic that appears to be taking up a fair bit of time is social media -- both the good and the bad.
One of the issues certainly isn't new, is the idea of closing some practice time every week to not only the fans, but the media too.
