Sask. women done at nationals

The Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship will continue for the next two days but unfortunately no Saskatchewan ladies will be chasing a national title.

Representing the province was Kim Brown, Chloe Sies (pictured), Brooklin Fry, and Alex Schmidt. All four players missed the cut at the event hosted by the Red Deer Golf and Country Club.

Fry, 14, was the top performer shooting a two-round total of plus-24. The Shell Lake product was in decent shape after day one carding an eight-over, 80 but she shot 88 on Wednesday dropping her back in the field of the world’s best amateur women golfers.

Melville’s Chloe Sies had a much better round during the second day of the event carving ten strokes off her score but unfortunately her 91 on Tuesday left her too far back of the cut line. She finished at plus-28.

Kim Brown also posted a better round during the second day of the championship going from 91 to 88 but her plus-35 leaves her behind the cut line.

Alex Schmidt posted rounds of 95 and 97 meanwhile picking up valuable experience for what is expected to be many more national appearances.

North Carolina’s Jennifer Chang is the leader at minus-eight,

A champion will be crowned on Friday.
