Local golfer Chrissy Thomson finished 74th (+44) out of a pack of 94 yesterday at the eighthannual Canadian Ladies’ Golf National Amateur in Blainville, Que., near Montreal.
While the final round of the four-day event wrapped up today, Thomson, who shot an 89 yesterday, didn’t make the cut.
Thomson had opened play Tuesday by carding an 81. She then ballooned to a 90 in the second round Wednesday. Her threeday total was 260.
Heading into today’s final round, defending champ Lisa Meldrum of Kirkland, Que., shot a one-under 71 yesterday to hold a one-stroke lead over Laura Matthews of Essex, Ont.
Meldrum sat at 218 (+2) after rounds of 75 and 72 on the first two days. Matthews had a 75 yesterday to go along with scores of 71 and 73 for a 219 total (+3).
Mollie Fankhauser of Columbus, Ohio was in third place heading into play today, sitting with a three-day total of 224 (+8) after rounds of 77, 74, and 73.
As reported in yesterday’s Daily Bulletin, Thomson helped Team Manitoba capture the low-net (handicap) trophy after the team competition wrapped up Wednesday.
The team, which also included Jill Hardy, Heather McMunn, and Stacey Bieber, had a net handicap score of 460—five strokes better than British Columbia and eight ahead of Quebec (which won the low gross trophy).
