(WATERLOO, ON) – For the third day in a row at the Investors Group Junior Spring Classic, a new name topped the leaderboard at Grey Silo Golf Course. But, this was the round where it counted.
Ruthven’s Alyssa Getty came into the round just one shot off the lead, but after 18 holes, the Team Ontario and Kingsville Golf and Country Club member was two-over, 73, for the day, bringing her tournament total to six-over (71-75-73-219), good enough for a one-shot victory.
The victory was extra sweet for Getty, who fell just short last year.
“I’m really excited that I played well this year and gave myself a chance to win,” she explained. “I am proud that I came out and got it done. I think my bad shots didn’t get me into a lot of trouble, so I stayed around even and kept it consistent. I was proud how I handled the pressure and happy overall with how I played.”
Finishing second was second-round leader, and fellow Team Ontario member, Chloe Currie. The Port Credit native, and Mississaugua Golf and Country Club member, finished the day at four-over, 75, bringing her total to seven-over (72-73-75-220).
Taking the bronze medal, and making it an all-Team Ontario sweep of the medals, was Richmond Hill’s Monet Chun. Chun, a member at Summit Golf and Country Club, led after round one and finished the day four-over, 75, to end the tournament 10-over (69-79-75-223).
