Golfer with NS connections fares well at British Open

A golfer who learned to play in Nova Scotia finished in the Top 20 at the British Open.

Austin Connelly began the day in a tie for third but had trouble on the front nine yesterday and finished in a tie for 14th behind the winner Jordan Speith.

The 20 year old Connelly was born in Texas but spent his summers with his grandparents in Digby County and learned to golf at the Clare Golf and Country Club in Comeauville.
