Kingsville, ON – A mix of rain and sun at Kingsville Golf & Country Club provided the backdrop for the third round of the 2022 Ontario Junior Girls Championship.
The varying weather, however, didn’t seem to faze our leader, Swetha Sathish (Hidden Lake Golf Club). Sathish faired well on the course today, finishing 2-over on the day and even par (216) for the tournament. As a result, she remains on top of the leaderboard sitting four strokes ahead of the field heading into the final round.
Shauna Liu (Station Creek Golf Club) and Julia Alexander-Carew (Credit Valley Golf & Country Club) share second place, sitting at 4-over (220) through the first three days. Alexander-Carew recorded the round’s low score, shooting 2-under on the day after early birdies on holes 1 and 2.
The girls will be ready to tee off at 7:30 am off holes one and ten, for the final round beginning Thursday morning.
