A picture-perfect day greeted the final day of the Ontario Women’s Match Play Championship from Cataraqui Golf & Country Club. The beautiful Monday morning showed us four great golfers battling to earn their spot in the final.
The morning semi-final matches saw Myranda Quinton (Blue Springs Golf Club) defeat Judith Kyrinis (Granite Golf Club) in a hard-fought battle 4 & 3. The second semi-final match saw Nyah Kelly (Kawartha Golf Club) take down the defending champion Raesa Sheikh (Golf Canada Club – Ontario) after 19 holes. Nyah was down 2 holes heading into 16 but fought back strong and won hole 16 and made a clutch par putt on 18 to force a playoff. Nyah then went on to hit a great wedge shot to 3 feet on the first playoff hole to clinch her spot in the finals.
The finals saw Myranda Quinton take on Nyah Kelly, who both came off impressive semi-final wins looking to claim the prestigious trophy. It was a very intense match which featured Myranda and Nyah going back and forth the entire way, sharing the lead multiple times throughout the match. Nyah eventually came out victorious with a clutch putt on 18 to secure the victory 1 up over Myranda.
Golf Ontario would like to thank the players, staff, and volunteers for their support of the Ontario Women’s Match Play Championship. Thank you to Cataraqui G&CC and their staff for yet again hosting this wonderful competition.
