Fenwick, ON – Moving day of the Junior Girls (U19) Spring Classic (U19) at Sawmill Golf Course saw the weather and the play heat up. Thankfully after a wet and rainy start to the round, the sun came out and provided a beautiful Sunday backdrop that allowed the girls to shine.
A tight leaderboard heading into the day saw a major opportunity for players to make up ground. The back nine brought out eagles and a plethora of birdies as the girls jostled for the lead heading into tomorrow’s final round. Tied for the lead after round two are Team Ontario member Ashley Lafontaine (Royal Ottawa Golf Club) and Michelle Xing (Station Creek Golf Club) at +3 overall after both shooting even par (72) today. Right behind them at +4 are Carlee Meilleur (Players Club – Ottawa) and fellow Team Ontario teammate Lindsay McGrath (Rattlesnake Point Golf Club). Eight more players sit within six strokes to shape things up for an exciting third day.
Final round action resumes tomorrow (Sunday) with the opening tee time at 11 am. To view full tee times and follow along with the leaderboard, visit our Golf Genius page here.
Junior Boys Spring Classic Update: After the opening round was cancelled today, the Town of Uxbridge is still under a State of Emergency, due to yesterday’s severe storm. Crews are working hard throughout the town continuing cleanup efforts and getting power reconnected.
We are hoping that we see good news by later tonight or tomorrow morning regarding the power coming back on at Wooden Sticks Golf Course.
In order for the event to begin as previously communicated this morning, the power at the golf course must be restored. The facility cannot open to us if that does not happen.
Another update will be provided tomorrow morning as soon as possible and no later than 10:00 am.
