Jones Wins Jamieson Event At Willow Ridge
With rain threatening to shorten the second Jamieson event of the season, players and volunteers were happy to see the overcast skies hold off at Willow Ridge Golf and Country Club on Monday. Cooler weather and a slight breeze made for ideal scoring conditions, but the challenging course layout and undulating greens tested all facets of the competitors’ games.
In the Junior Girls division, Pointe West’s Kyla Charlebois emerged victorious, edging out Maple City’s Karolyn Rombouts by two shots. Charlebois used nines of 40-35, for a total of three-over-par 75. Her back nine included two birdies and one bogey, to go along with six pars. Rombouts fired nines of 38-39, and Kennedy Fremlin (Essex) finished in third with a score of 83.
In the Junior Boys division, there was a tie atop the leaderboard between Ridgetown’s Marcus Jones and Pointe West’s Tyler Hurtubise. Jones used three birdies and one bogey to fire a two-under-par 70, and Hurtubise matched him with five birdies and three bogeys on the card. In second place was Jax Sisson (Pointe West) with a 73, and Steven Hill (Essex) finished in third with a 76.
In the Collegiate Mens division, Josh DiCarlo (Pointe West) finished first with a score of two-under-par, besting Willow Ridge’s Aidan Webster by one shot. DiCarlo used five birdies to go along with three bogeys on route to nines of 34-36, while Webster’s round included five birdies and four bogeys for nines of 35-36.
