BC Teen Leads Canadian Junior Girls Golf Championship

Attention: Sports Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor COBBLE HILL, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 2, 2005) - Cobble Hill, B.C. - Lindsay Caljouw of Nanaimo, B.C. made her mark Tuesday by shooting a course record 69 to lead the Royale National Junior Girl's Championship conducted by the Royal Canadian Golf Association at Arbutus Ridge Golf & Country Club in Cobble Hill, B.C.

Caljouw sits atop the leader board entering the second round, one shot ahead of Stephanie Sherlock of Barrie, Ont. Sherlock, who is in second, carded an opening round 70, while Maude-Aimée LeBlanc of Windsor, Que. sits third with an even par score of 72.

2003 champion Anita Gahir of Thornhill, Ont. remains in the hunt shooting 75 just six shots off the lead and tied for fifth place.

The 18 year-old Caljouw, who recently returned to form following a shoulder injury seven weeks ago, showed no signs of weakness on Tuesday, clinching the course record with a 15 foot putt for eagle on the 18th hole.
"I dislocated my shoulder playing golf earlier this year, but I feel like I've got my game back now," said Caljouw. "It was a slow back nine for me, but after my birdie on ten I really got into a groove."

"I just want to play my heart out this week… that's my goal. It's still too early in the week to say anything. There are two days left so I'm not thinking about the lead too much."

Arbutus Ridge Golf & Country Club previous course record mark was set at 71 by three British Columbia golfers - Ali Stinson of Penticton, Jessica Potter of Coquitlam, and Eom-Ji Park of Vancouver.

In Inter-provincial team play, defending champion British Columbia opened up play with a six shot lead on Quebec posting a first round score of 220. Quebec is second at 226 while Ontario is in third place at 227. British Columbia is attempting to earn their fourth Inter-provincial team title in five seasons.

Play continues tomorrow with the second round teeing off at approximately 7:30 am (PDT). Following second round play the RCGA will crown an Inter provincial team champion. The final round of competition is scheduled for Thursday.
