Klughart left the field in awe with a seven-shot win over North Battleford’s Scott Thompson with a three round score of 205. 36-hole mid-am leader Justin Wood of Unity placed third at 3-under par.
Saskatoon’s Travis Fehr placed fourth at 1-under par. Shaun Dunphy (Saskatoon) and Mitch Matichuk (Melville) tied for fifth overall at 1-over.
The complete leaderboard of the championship can be found here. The mid-am championship is open to players 25 years and up.

Brooklin Fry sweeps provincials
Shell Lake’s Brooklin Fry is a back-to-back champion as well except the 15-year old’s wins came within two weeks.
Last week in Swift Current Fry won the Saskatchewan junior girl’s championship. On Thursday Fry came from two shots down to win the provincial amateur women’s title as well in Warman.
