Graham DeLaet out of the Open Championship

Graham DeLaet is coming home much earlier than he had hoped.

The Weyburn golfer has missed the cut at the Open Championship after shooting a 4-over 76 on Friday, leaving him 3-over for the tournament, missing the cut by one stroke.

DeLaet gave himself a chance during the first round on Thursday carding a 1-under 71, but it just wasn't meant to be as DeLaet was 3-over through the first two holes on Friday. DeLaet then birdied the 5th before posting triple and double bogeys on the 8th and 9th hole. DeLaet birdied the 10th and eagled the 16th but it wasn't enough.

Warriors General Manager Alan Millar met with Tim Hunter in Vancouver over the weekend and says it was at that point the decision to come on board became obvious.

Swimming to success at national championships

Something instantly clicked and, like any good fish, Benkic was hooked. Two years later, he began to swim competitively for the Saskatoon Goldfins, breastroking and backstroking his way to a national level.
