Team Ontario Leads at Can-Matches

Team Ontario holds a lead over South Carolina with a score of 13.5 to 10.5 after the first day of the 24th Can-Am Matches.

The opening day’s eight mixed four-ball matches at Wachesaw Plantation Club in Murrells Inlet, S.C., showcased Team Ontario facing off against their South Carolinian counterparts. The visiting juniors from Ontario seized an early advantage, securing 13.5 out of the available 24 points.

“Today’s matches were incredibly close, yet our cohesive teamwork allowed us to take the lead for the first time in years,” says Team Ontario’s Head Coach, Reggie Millage. “I’m immensely proud of our collective achievement today and look forward to the opportunities tomorrow’s matches will bring.”

Team Ontario’s early lead was bolstered by outstanding mixed-team performances from Angela Cai and Dawson Lew; Alexa Ouellet and Bode Stephen; and Bridget Yu and Rylan Hall.


The Ontario team, comprising the entire Team Ontario roster, will each participate in one of the 16 singles matches at the Wachesaw Plantation Club. A total of 48 points will be at stake during Sunday’s singles matches, with three points available per match (one point for the front nine, one for the back nine, and one for the overall match). The first team to reach at least 36.5 points will claim victory.


Team Ontario last clinched the Can-Am Matches in 2019.
