Round two of the Ontario Junior Tour Championship at Fire Rock GC was played under tough conditions yet again as the winds continued to pose challenges for competitors.
Weston Golf & Country Club and Team Ontario member Alexa Ouellet added to her day one lead after another solid round and now sits atop the leaderboard with a six stroke lead at minus seven after two days over Shauna Liu of Station Creek. Making moves throughout the day, RattleSnake Point’s Lindsay McGrath shares third place with her fellow club mates the Park sisters, Kaprice and Nobelle.
In boys action, Station Creek’s Jager Pain mirrored his efforts from day one going minus two for 70 once again. Several players made some moves behind Pain, most notably Aiden Pavey (Hidden Lake GC) and Kevin Teichroeb (Kingsville Golf & CC) who jumped fourteen spots each to sit T4 joined by Chase Jerome (Royal Ottawa GC) who dropped two strokes on day two. Between the aforementioned players is Brayden Card of Galt CC who picked up two strokes and holds second place followed by Luke Smith of The Thornhill Club in third who shot 73 for the second day in a row.
The final round starts at eight am Wednesday, with all to play for in both fields. The conditions on course here at FireRock Golf Club have been tough, particularly holding onto the fast greens while battling swirling winds around the course.
Commenting on play from day two, Provincial Head Coach Reggie Millage shared that he “…applauded the efforts of those who showed resilience in making positive moves up the leaderboard, and also noted the difficulty in shooting the low round two days in a row as Ouellet and Pain have both done.”
