Regional Notes: LPGA, GAO, Golf Canada

It was a pretty solid looking Friday for Augusta James of Bath, Ontario at the CN Canadian Women’s Open.  The 18 year-old amateur and member at Loyalist Country Club in Bath, hit every fairway in round two of the LPGA event and got things under control with her putter to shoot even par, 72 at Hillsdale Country Club.  Unfortunately her two round total of 146 (74-72) was three strokes too high to make the cut.

The North Carolina State freshman will be headed back to Raleigh at the end of the weekend to continue her collegiate experience.

Seven Canadians made the cut at the CN, including amateur Maude-Aimee Leblanc who made her LPGA debut at the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club in the 2008 CN Canadian Women’s, the same year she won the Quebec Women’s Amateur at Camelot Golf & Country Club.

– Congratulations to Geoff Henning of Kingston for winning the 2011 GAO Kingston District Senior Men’s Match Play Championship.  Henning defeated Eric Stevens in the final at Black Bear Ridge in Belleville by a score of 6&4.

– Susan Pearl of Ottawa (RideauView) was the low finisher from the region at the Canadian Women’s Senior Amateur Championship near Pickering, Ontario this past week.  Pearl finished 23rd.  The winner was former Hudson, Quebec resident Mary Ann Hayward.  Former Royal Ottawa GC member Alison Murdoch, who now lives in Victoria, B.C., finished 12th.
