High temperatures and increasing winds tested all the players on Tuesday during the second round of the Investors Group Ontario Junior Girls’ Championship.
Overnight leader Isabella Portokalis was nearly flawless in her play from tee to green. Despite a few missed putts and a bauble on the 15th hole, she will carry a lead into round three at Loyalist Country Club in Bath, Ontario.
The West Haven Golf & Country Club member started her round of 74 with a birdie on the first hole but followed with successive misses on short birdie chances on the next two. A member of Team Ontario, she did not find any serious trouble until the 15th hole where she hooked her tee shot left on the par four. Her attempt to extricate herself from the long grass was unsuccessful, and by the time she was done she had a score of six on her card.
While the 74 was six strokes higher than her opening tally, Portokalis will have a one stroke lead to start round three.
Remaining in second place is Mississauga’s Chloe Currie. Currie, from the Mississaugua Golf & Country Club and a member of the Team Canada Development squad, began the day at two-under. She was even through eight holes, however a triple bogey on the ninth hole gave her some work to do on the back nine. Currie managed to card birdies on 12 and 17 and finished the day one-over (73) to now sit at one-under for the tournament.
In third place is Hornby’s Alexandra Naumovski. Naumovski, from Brampton Golf Club and a Team Ontario member, has been consistent throughout the event. She carded her second consecutive even-par (72) round and is just two off the lead.
In fourth sits London’s Ellie Szeryk. Szeryk had the low round of the day finishing three-under (69). Szeryk was tearing up the course and was at five-under with three holes to play. However, she would bogey the 17th and 18th to finish the round. She now sits at one-over for the tournament, after her first round of four-over (76).
Rounding out the top five is the top local player Kingston’s Diana McDonald. McDonald followed up her first round of two-over (74) with an even par (72) during round two and sits two-over for the championship.
After the round the field was cut to the lowest 42 scores and ties. The cut was set at 41-over and 42 players advanced to the final two rounds.
