Ontario Peewee Championship

Li & Lai Lead After First Round of 2022 Ontario Peewee Boys & Girls

Bracebridge, ON – Max Li (Station Creek Golf Club) and Andrea Lai (St. Thomas Country Club Ltd) lead the way in their respective divisions after round one of the 2022 Ontario Peewee (U13) Boys & Girls Championship at South Muskoka Curling and Golf Club.

Heavy rain came down throughout the day, but the wet conditions did not seem to impact the play of our competitors as the low scores poured in.

Max Li holds the lead in the boy’s division after shooting an impressive 4-under (68) on the day. Li was on fire with his putter, sinking five birdie putts and giving himself a 3-stroke lead going into the final round. In second place sits 2021 Peewee Champion Andy Dai (Station Creek Golf Club), who is in the red numbers today, shooting a 1-under (71).
