We’ll have to wait until Saturday morning to learn the identities of all the golfers who will escape the ax at the Canadian Women’s Open as round two was interrupted by darkness. Nevertheless, five Canadians showed a good performance on Friday in Ottawa.
Ontario’s Maddie Szeryk stood out the most by playing 68(-3). That moved her to 14th place on a cumulative card of -7.
Crowd favorite Brooke M. Henderson also secured her place in the third round with a 68. She placed 32nd after hitting the ball 137 times (-5) in two rounds.
However, Szeryk and Henderson will have work to do to aspire to the highest honors. South Korea’s Narin An insisted and signed, taking six more shots from par. At -13, she is two shots ahead of the three golfers in second place.
Still on the side of the Maple Leaf representatives, Rebecca Lee-Bentham placed herself in a good position to escape Ax established at -2, which has a score of -4. She didn’t finish her round, however, and will be back in action at the 15th pennant on Saturday.
Alena Sharp did what was necessary to continue her journey by playing 72 (+1), she who is level on points with compatriot Lauren Zaretsky in 57th at -3.
Amateur Quebec player Sarah-Eve Rheaume, 69, is a hair’s breadth away but her cumulative card of -1 will not allow her to play at Ottawa Hunt Golf Club on Saturday.
All other Canadians in the race also saw their tournament finish, including Quebec’s Maude-Aimée Leblanc (71).
