Anne-Catherine Tanguay, who won the Quebec Women’s Amateur at Manotick’s Carleton Golf & Yacht Club just two years ago, had a fine showing this week on the SunCoast Ladies Tour in Florida.
Playing at the Timacuan Golf Club just north of Orlando, the Quebec City native finished in second place alone with a three round total of 215 (-1). She posted rounds of 74, 71, and 70 to ultimately trail winner Yueer Feng of China by three strokes.
Four others Canadians, Chelcia Petersen (t-18), amateur Sophie Liu (t-21), Sabrina Sapone (t-23) and Kirby Dreher (25th) also made it to the final round.
Hannah Hellyer of Quinte West, Ontario, missed the 36-hole cut.
13 Canadian players will be in the field at the Symetra Tour event in Beaumont, California starting Friday. That includes Sue Kim, Jennifer Kirby, Maude-Aimee Leblanc, Rebecca Lee-Bentham, Brogan McKinnon, Lisa Meldrum, Natalie Gleadall, Samantha Richdale, Brittany Henderson, Augusta James, Nicole Vandermade, Jessica Wallace, and Sara-Maude Juneau. The Volvik Championship wraps up on Sunday with 54 holes of scheduled play.
The second round of the eGolf Gateway Tour event at Palmetto Hall Plantation at Hilton Head Island (SC) was suspended due to darkness on Thursday.
There are three Canadians in the field, and many players are struggling with poor weather. Cool temperatures are hampering scoring. Toronto’s Greg Doherty is still on the course for round 2 after scoring an opening 76 in the first round.
Making the cut looks like a bleak prospect for Dundas, Ontario’s Mackenzie Hughes after posting a 74 and a 79. The fate looks the same for Kingston, Ontario’s Matt McQuillan who turned in a 77 and a 79.
Round two of the Swingthought.com Tour at Kinderlou Forest (Georgia) was also suspended due to darkness. Toronto’s Albin Choi, part of Golf Canada’s Young Pro program, was one stroke off the lead as of the end of play on Thursday with rounds of 69 and 70.
Dundas, Ontario’s Christopher Ross is t-7 and -3 with just one round complete as of Thursday night.
Several other Canadians, including Riley Wheeldon and Taylor Pendrith, are further down in the field.
