Reay, who recently completed her first year of college golf with the Alabama State University Hornets in Montgomery, carded 14 pars Wednesday to go along with a birdie and two bogey’s for a 1-over 73.
With her solid second round, Reay jumped ahead of fellow Saskatonian Ashley Olynick on the leader board at 7-over 151.
Olynick is four shots off the pace at 155. On Wednesday, Olynick shot a 6-over 78, which included two birdies. She had a fine front nine with a 36, but took a triple-bogey seven on No. 11 on her way to a 42 through the back.
Saskatoon’s Kim Brown and Anna Young are tied for third at 163. Brown shot an 81 with nine pars and nine bogeys. Young carded eight pars, eight bogeys, a birdie and a triple-bogey eight on the par-5 No. 8.
The Amateur continues through Friday.
The top four finishers will represent Saskatchewan in interprovincial team competition at the Royale Cup Canadian Amateur at the Elmhurst Golf and Country Club in Winnipeg from July 28 to Aug. 1.
Phelps leads Mid-Amateur
Saskatoon’s Brad Phelps has an eight-stroke lead in the Saskatchewan Mid-Amateur, also being played at the Melfort Golf and Country Club.
Phelps fired a 1-under 71 Wednesday after a course-record 62 Tuesday. He is at 11-under 133.
“It’s nice to have that cushion, but there’s still lots of golf to play,” Phelps said. “There are still two more days.”
Dallas Lequyer of Lethbridge is second at 3-under 141. Prince Albert’s Martin Ring is third at 142 and Claude Bourgault of St. Brieux fourth at 143.
Phelps is looking for his second-ever berth on the Saskatchewan team. He made the provincial team two years ago.
Four spots are up for grabs on the men’s squad which moves on to the Canadian Mid-Amateur championships in Qualicum Beach, B.C., from Aug. 18 to 22. The team must include a minimum of two players age 40 or older.
