Team Ontario Players Grab Lead After Round 2 at Ontario Junior Boys’ Spring Classic

Shelburne, ON – Round 2 of the Ontario Junior Boys Spring Classic from Shelburne Golf and Country Club luckily escaped any bad weather that was originally forecasted. Under hot, muggy and at time windy conditions, many players posted great scores to climb the leaderboard and give themselves a shot for tomorrow’s final round. Fifteen players shot under par as they jockeyed for position into the top 10.

 

With cuts being made to forty-two plus ties, your leader heading into the final round is once again Team Ontario member Ben MacLean (Cherry Hill Club). His -1 (70) was enough to escape the day with a one-stroke lead at seven-under, on fellow Team Ontario teammate Ellis Kinnaird (Mississippi Golf Club), who shot a brilliant 5-under (66) to climb into sole possession of second place. Two strokes back of the lead is Andre Zhu (National Pines Golf Club) and Justin Matthews (Bigwin Island Golf Club). Zhu also leads the (U17) Juvenile division race, with that champion being recognized after the final action is complete.

 

Ten more players find themselves under par heading into what should be an exciting final round, that tees off at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. Leaderboard information, pairings, and tee times can be found on our Golf Genius page. For media coverage of the Ontario Junior (U19) Boys’ Spring Classic, please visit the Golf Ontario Facebook page to view our photo albums.
