The 8th hole, Loyalist Country Club

A fourteen year-old leads the way after round one of the 2016 Investors Group Ontario Junior Girls’ Championship.

Team Ontario member Isabella Portokalis looped the Loyalist Country Club in Bath, just west of Kingston, in just 68 strokes on Monday. Her four-under total gives her a two-shot lead on her nearest pursuers with 54 holes remaining on the schedule.

The member of West Haven Golf & Country Club in London had just one blemish on her first round card, a bogey on the dogleg right par 4, 9th holes.

To combat it she recorded five birdies on the day, on holes 5, 8, 12, 15, and 16.

In hot pursuit of Portokalis are a number of very accomplished players. The include the defending champion, Chloe Currie. Currie, a member of the Mississaugua Golf & Country Club and Team Canada Development squad, opened with a 70 (-2) that included an chip-in eagle on the par 5, 12th hole.

Joining Currie at -2 for the day was Cynthia Zhao of Toronto. The Station Creek Golf Club member, who played in the first group off the tee, held the clubhouse lead for much of the day after recording a bogey-free 70.

Sitting in fourth is Hornby’s Alexandra Naumovski. Naumovski, from the Brampton Golf Club finished the round at even par (72).

Rounding out the top five is a four-way tie at two-over (74) between Kingston’s Diana McDonald, Markham’s Victoria Zheng, Niagara Falls’ Emily Ward and Ottawa’s Haley Yerxa.

The second round gets underway at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday at Loyalist Country Club. Spectators are invited to come and watch the action. For more information, including pairings and the live leaderboard, see the tournament site at: https://gao.bluegolf.com/bluegolf/gao16/event/gao1625/index.htm
