Golf Ontario – ELMIRA – The 2017 Investors Group Ontario Junior Girls’ Championship got underway on July 4, from the Elmira Golf Club in Elmira. The day started strong for some, especially Niagara Falls’ Emily Ward who eagled the fifth hole. Ward, a member of Team Ontario, was steady throughout the day, finishing two-over (72). She finds herself tied at the top of the leaderboard with Richmond Hill’s Emily Zhu.

It was a cold start to the day and most players were bundled up to keep warm. The temperatures didn’t stop the 13-year-old Zhu, from National Pines Golf Club. Zhu is one of the youngest players in this year’s field and has made quite an impression after the first round, carding her two-over (72) for a share of the lead.

Sitting just one-shot back is London’s Ellie Szeryk. The 2016 Junior Girls’ Spring Classic Champion shot a three-over (73) during the round. The rest of the top five remains close with Maple’s Alyssa DiMarcantonio at four-over and Aurora’s Vanessa Chychrun at five-over.   

The second round gets underway at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow from the Elmira Golf Club. Spectators are invited to come and watch the action. The weather looks promising over the next few days, which should help the players score well. For more information, including pairings and the leaderboard, see the tournament site at:
