It took a few more holes than regulation but Ottawa’s Grace St-Germain has another big win on her resume.
The defending Canadian Junior and Juvenile Girls’ Champion one-upped her second place finish at the Golf Quebec Junior Spring Open last week and grabbed top prize on Sunday at the CN Future Links Pacific Championship.
After opening with a 2 over par, 73 on Friday at the Pheasant Glen Golf Resort in Qualicum Beach, British Columbia, St-Germain jumped to the top of the board on Saturday with a 71.
After she posted a 74 for the third and final round it took two birdies in the last three holes by Michelle Kim to catch Grace and force a playoff.
St-Germain prevailed on the second extra hole.
“I’ll try to play as well as I played this week for the rest of the summer and try to take what I did well here and incorporate it into the rest of the tournaments,” added St-Germain when asked about her outlook for the season ahead.
The 16 year-old member of the Camelot Golf & Country Club will be on-site Tuesday during the Kevin Haime Kids to the Course Classic at Eagle Creek Golf Club to hit a few shots for the attendees. St-Germain works with Haime as well as Ann Carroll of the Team Canada National Development Team.
She is the subject of the profile feature in the upcoming Flagstick For Women Annual.
Trevor Ranton of Waterloo, Ontario, also a member of the Team Canada Junior Development Squad, won the Boy’s Division of the CN Future Links Pacific Championship with a three round total of 204, 12 under par.
