Kennedy climbs to number one after round two of Ladies’ Am
Today’s 2017 Sun Life Financial Alberta Ladies’ Amateur Championship competitors took charge of the Red Deer Golf and Country Club. Heading into tomorrow’s final round, Kat Kennedy came back from yesterday’s T4 position, now in the lead after claiming the lowest scorecard of the day – two under (70).
“It felt a lot better today. I hit a lot more fairways and a lot more greens. Grinding it out with pars and birdies definitely helped the day. I am also hoping to go a lot lower tomorrow as well,” she says.
Kenna Hughes sits close behind in second, after an outstanding five under (31) back nine, with Sabrine Garrison and Andrea Kosa also still safely in the top five. Kehler Koss fell to 8th after a tough day (80), with Lauren Diederichs climbing to 5th with a two over par 74 round. Kosa has a chance to win all three major awards, with a strong lead in both the Mid Amateur and Mid Master divisions.
Award presentations are tentatively set for 3:30PM, after Friday’s final round. Alberta’s Interprovincial Women’s Amateur Team will be determined, with prizing and photos to take place. Trophies will be awarded to the Ladies’ Amateur, Mid Amateur (25 and over), Mid Master (40 and over) and the lowest tournament round scorer.
Tee times begin at 7:30AM, with the top three groups to start at 9:20AM.
