2nd round of Alberta U19 Championship played on adjusted course
Alberta Golf (Spruce Grove) – Due to overnight rain the 2nd hole at The Links of Spruce Grove was deemed unplayable for the second round of the Alberta U19 Championship, and the 17th hole was reduced from a par 5 to a par 3. As a result competitors in both the Girls and Boys competition played the course today as a par 65.
2-time defending Junior Girls Champion Annabelle Ackroyd of The Glencoe Golf and CC in Calgary shot 1 over par to increase her leads to 5 strokes heading into Thursday’s final round as she looks for 3 straight Alberta Junior Girls Titles to cap off her amazing junior career.
