It’s already been a busy summer for Thornhill’s Judith Kyrinis but we’re betting there is still enough room for another trophy on her mantle.
The Thornhill Golf & Country Club member is the leading threat at this week’s United States Golf Association Senior Women’s Amateur Championship.
She will be the #1 seed as the event turns to match play on Monday after two rounds of stroke play qualifying at the Wellesley Country Club just outside Boston.
During stroke play Kyrinis was the only player to match par, doing so with back to back rounds of even par, 74.
The 52 year-old registered nurse has been having quite a year so far. She won the 2016 Canadian Women’s Mid-Amateur, Mid-Master, and Senior Championships, as well as repeating as champion at the Senior Women’s North & South Championship at famed Pinehurst Resort.
On Monday the top seed will face American Jen Holland in match play.
Other Canadians advancing to match play include Marie Torti and Helene Chartrand of Quebec, Sandra Turbide of British Columbia and Ivy Steinberg and Mary Ann Hayward of Ontario.
