A bogey-free final round of 4-under 68 wasn’t enough for Ryan Ruffels to make any headway at the Mackenzie Investments Open on the Mackenzie Tour in Canada.
Looking to move towards the top five on the Order of Merit, Ruffels was 10-under through two rounds and in contention but lost ground with a third round of 1-under 71 in a week of low scoring at Elm Ridge Country Club in Montreal.
Tied for 12th with 18 holes left to play, Ruffels started brightly with a birdie at his opening hole yet despite adding three more over the course of his round lost ground overall, dropping to a tie for 13th as Canadian Taylor Pendrith completed a commanding eight-shot victory.
The penultimate tournament of the Mackenzie Tour season, Ruffels now sits 18th on the Order of Merit, his path to the Korn Ferry Tour in 2020 now looking most likely to come through the PGA TOUR-Latinoamerica Tour where he is fifth on the moneylist and which resumes in Brazil next week.
