Jackie Little maintains her lead looking for her fourth Senior Ladies’ title

Kim Carrington sits second with Linda Morris jumping to third heading into tomorrow’s final round

Jackie Little continues to charge ahead after round two of the 2017 Guardian Capital Alberta Senior Ladies’ Championship. The three-time tournament champion leads the field once again, with a four stroke (152) lead heading into tomorrow’s final round. She says that this year she wasn’t sure about her chances of winning again, but that her experience is helping to move her forward.

“My game has not been right on this year. It’s been a bit of a struggle. Right now, I’m just kind of happy that I’m almost there. It feels like it’s almost clicking. I’m not going to think about victory. I’m just going to try and keep the game going on. I think when you have experience, you try and manage things when the game’s not perfect.”

Kim Carrington looked strong after nine holes, but finished second with an 80 on day two. Linda Morris jumps from seventh to third place with a 77. Barbara Flaman now finds herself in the top ten, sitting fourth with the low (76) round of the day. Alison Murdoch maintains a healthily lead in the Super Senior (65+) division.

The top three Albertan players will form the Alberta Senior Ladies’ Interprovincial Squad. This year’s national competition will be held in Newfoundland from August 22nd to 24th. The team will be announced and trophies will be presented to the champions at tomorrow’s presentation tentatively set for 2:30PM.

Little was born and raised in Edmonton, but now represents another province. She just moved to Balfur, BC in April and says that “it’s always nice to come back home.”
