Tanguay Dominates Quebec Women’s Amateur

The Quebec Provincial Women’s Amateur and Senior Championships have concluded in Chicoutimi.

In the Amateur competition a familiar face dominated this year’s championship from start to finish.

Defending the championship she won in 2011 Anne-Catherine Tanguay opened with a round of -4 and after a 73 in round two the Royal Quebec member had established a six stroke lead over Josee Doyon of Beaceville.

A steady final round of 68 left her with a -5 total for the championship and a second consecutive win for the University of Oklahoma student-athlete. Tanguay won her first NCAA Division 1 tournament at the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic held last October and finished 4th at the Big 12 Championship.

“I was very eager to come back and play in Québec in front of my fans and family members. I spent the last season in the United States and it was very long. It feels good to be back and win at home”, said Tanguay. “Two years ago, I’m sure I would not have played this well in such windy conditions. But I had the opportunity to learn what to do and was able to adapt accordingly this week”, she added.

Seniors

Two rounds of 77 and 73 brought Carole Letendre of the Algonquin Golf Club her second provincial victory in the senior category. She captured her first title at Camelot in 2008. Teri de Luis of Brockville, co-leader of the first round, signed a scorecard of 76 (+4) and completed the tournament one stroke back of Letendere at +7.

“I would like to thank the numerous Saguenay volunteers and salute all the golfing women of the region for coming to see us play. Their warm welcome and implication were an element of success in the presentation of this event”, said Letendre.

Louise Hotte (Rivermead), winner of the Nivo Debbie Savoy Morel Cup held last week, had a great comeback with a final round score of 71 after a difficult first round of 85.  That kept her in the top three on the Order of Merit to earn a spot on the provincial team.
