Fenwick, ON – The summer heat drags on as the 7th annual Ontario Peewee (U13) Championship gets underway at Sawmill Golf Course. With only 36-holes of competition, the boys and girls had to play smart in order to take advantage of the leaderboard in round one.

 

Leading the pack on the girls’ side with a clean round of two-under, is Shauna Liu of Station Creek. With four birdies to give her a solid 69 heading into the final round tomorrow, Liu has a two-stroke lead over second place competitors, Celina Yeo (Public Player) and Nobelle Park (Hidden Lake GC), who both shot an even-par of 71.

 

Over on the boys’ side, Andy Dai (Station Creek GC) has the lead at one-under after a round of 70. Following closely just one stroke back is Brayden Card (Galt Country Club), who has a group of T3 players looking to make a move in the final round. Firing 73 to land in a four-way tie for third, is Ben Julie (Sawmill GC), Vasili Gianakas (The National GC of Canada), Manav Bharani (Brampton GC Ltd), and Dawson Lew (Markham).

 

The leaderboards are tight for both divisions, which could make for a real nail-biter in the final round tomorrow. Due to poor internet connection in Fenwick, video coverage will be added to Golf Ontario’s social feeds following the end of the round. The final round begins at 8:00 a.m., with the girls starting play off and the boys teeing it up at 9:30 a.m.. Make sure to follow along with the leaderboard on our Golf Genius page, as live scoring will be provided for the three leader groups in each division and the crown could be anyone’s for the taking.
