Some work will need to be done if any of Saskatchewan’s junior girl golfers will make Wednesday’s cut at the Canadian championship in British Columbia.

After day one of the national event for women golfers under 19 years-old, the team Saskatchewan foursome did fare well at the Beach Grove Golf Club in Tsawwassen, B.C.

Saskatchewan champion Brooklin Fry, 13, shot 89 during the first round of the tournament. The Shell Lake product is in a tie for 105th place overall, but she sits in 66th position in the juvenile age group. The juvenile category is under 17 years-old as of Aug. 1. 15-year-old Sarah Grieve of Saskatoon and 16-year-old Carey McLean out of Deer Valley are tied for 123th place at plus-21.  That position jumps to 75th in the under-17 division.

Ella Kozak, 12, shot a 22-over, 94 during round one, she sits in a tie for 80th place in the juvenile division.

McLean, the last member of Team Sask. on the course Tuesday is the first on the blocks for round two. She tees off at 10:28 a.m. Saskatchewan time. Grieve will begin her round at 3:28 p.m. and Kozak tees off just 11 minutes later. Fry hits the course at 3:50 p.m.

Lauren Kim of Surrey, B.C. leads the event at 3-under through round one. Online scoring is available here.
