Ly Edges MacKinnon In Second Jamieson Tour Stop
After the Rochester Place tour stop was rained out on Monday, the players and volunteers were relieved to dodge any inclement weather at Essex Golf and Country Club Wednesday for the second stop on the Jamieson Golf Tour.
In the Collegiate Womens’ Division, it was a very tight race between Jasmine Ly (Northern Illinois University) and Brooke MacKinnon (Hartford University). Ly was two-over par (37) heading into the back nine, with MacKinnon three shots behind. Ly fired another 37 on the back nine, for a total of 74, and MacKinnon almost caught her, falling just one stroke shy after an impressive 35, which included 4 birdies. In third place was Erin Kopinak with a 78.
In the Collegiate Men’s division, locals Owen Dorssers and Mat Hawryluk were 7 shots off the leader James Hill, finishing tied for 4th after shooting 73s.
In the Junior Girls’ division, Maple City golfer Karolyn Rombouts was 3rd shooting a 77, while Hannah Butzer was 5th after shooting an 81.
The next Jamieson Tour stop is Thursday at Sutton Creek Golf Club.
