Fenwick, ON – The first round of the Junior Girls (U19) Spring Classic (U19) kicked off both the Victoria Day weekend and the 2022 Golf Ontario Championship Season. The Championship running from May 21-23 at Sawmill Golf Course, features many of Ontario’s best under 19 female golfers.
Players were greeted with a variety of playing conditions throughout the day, starting with sunny skies before quickly hit with harsh winds and humidity as the day went on. It was topped off with a 55-minute play delay as rain and dark skies made a late appearance.
The heat brought out some better scores on the back nine after the wind died down. Leading after round one is Nobelle Park (Hidden Lake GC) with a solid one-over (73). Right behind her in a four-way tie for second place at two-over are Sarah Gallagher (Trafalgar G&CC), Lindsay McGrath (Rattlesnake Point GC), Alessandra Nagayo (Ladies’ GC of Toronto) and Mekenna Kehoe (West Haven G&CC). Four more players sit another stroke back at three-over. Play resumes tomorrow (Sunday) with the second round starting tee time at 11 am.
