Samuel Leads Ontario Mid-Amateur Hogeboom Tied for 3rd

Bath, ON – First round action of the Investors Group Ontario Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship got under way on Tuesday, with two-time champion Terrill Samuel leading the field by a stroke at Loyalist Country Club in Bath, Ontario.

Samuel, a resident of Etobicoke, fired a one-under par 71 to claim the lead in the 54-hole event. The Weston Golf and Country Club member had an up and down front nine that saw her card three birdies and four bogeys, but found her stride down the stretch, laying down two more birdies in her bogey-free back nine. Samuel is looking for her third Ontario Women’s Mid-Amateur title after first winning in 1991 and again in 2000.

One stroke back is Ancaster resident Jennifer Lochhead, who has consistently placed in the top five in this event over the past four years. The Hamilton Golf and Country Club member carded an even-par 72, finishing strong with birdies on 17 and 18 to close out her round.

Three golfers are tied for third, Uxbridge resident Gail Pimm, two-time Ontario Women’s Mid-Amateur runner up (2008, 2009) Stefani Markovich of Welland, and local favourite Patricia Hogeboom of Kingston. All three golfers carded identical two-over par 74’s to sit three strokes off the pace heading into Wednesday’s second round.

Defending champion Margaret Matthews of Drumbo, Ontario sits in tenth place with a six-over par 78.
