Junior Spring Classic

McGrath Claims Junior Girls Spring Classic, Kinnaird Leads After day one of the Boys


Fenwick, ON – The Junior Girls (U19) Spring Classic at Sawmill Golf Course came down to the last hole of play today before a champion could be declared. Lindsay McGrath, a Team Ontario member, birdied eighteen dramatically and broke a three-way tie leading up to that hole to walk away with the hardware.

Sunny cool skies saw a tight leaderboard throughout the day as the girls battled back and forth to hang on to the lead. McGrath (Rattlesnake Point Golf Club) would fire a stellar tournament low four-under (68) that included six birdies. Mekenna Kehoe (West Haven Golf & Country Club) also recorded a 68 on her day to secure second place. Following one stroke behind in third was Michelle Xing (Station Creek Golf Club) after a one-under (71).  McGrath would also take the Juvenile (U17) award that is presented at this championship. Team Ontario had a strong showing with eight members finishing in the top 15.

Uxbridge, ON – After heavy storms cancelled the original day one, the boys were eager to tee off in the Junior Boys Spring Classic Championship this long weekend. Competitors played 18 holes today and will play another 18 tomorrow to determine the winner of the WD Randolph Millage trophy.


The boys were excited to get onto the course and were quite lucky as the sun was out for most of the day. Golfers had to fight off some wind but that didn’t seem to be an issue for our day one leaders.

Going into tomorrow, we have a very tight leaderboard for the number one spot. Ellis Kinnaird (Mississippi Golf Club) leads all, sitting at five-under (67) on the day. Ben MacLean (Cherry Hill Club) and Nathaniel Gray-Lamont (Cutten Fields) are both right behind at four-under (68). Four competitors are also closely behind at three-under, including Team Ontario golfer Zachary Smith (Brampton Golf Club) who round was highlighted with a gorgeous eagle on the 4th.

The Final round will continue tomorrow (Tuesday) with tee times starting at 7:30 am. To view full tee times and follow along with the leaderboard, visit our Golf Genius page here.
