CALJOUW CROWNED CHAMPION AT CANADIAN JUNIOR GIRLS CHAMPIONSHIP

BC native leads wire to wire to clinch Attention: Sports Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor COBBLE HILL, B.C.--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 4, 2005) - Lindsay Caljouw of Nanaimo, B.C. didn't look back on Thursday as she led wire to wire to win the 2005 Royale National Junior Girls Championship conducted by the Royal Canadian Golf Association in Cobble Hill, B.C..

Caljouw opened up the championship on Tuesday with a course record 69 performance. That first round mark proved to be the difference as she maintained a three-stroke lead on Maude Aimée LeBlanc of Windsor, Que. the rest of the way en route to her first Canadian championship title.

The 18 year-old Caljouw finished at one over for the championship with a three-day final total of 69-72-76-217. LeBlanc who matched Caljouw's scores on the final two-days finished at 72-72-76-220.
Caljouw did make the final round interesting struggling through holes 8 and 12 where she carded double bogeys on each.

On #16 she regained her confidence by slamming the door on LeBlanc who was poised to move within two strokes with two holes to play.

"I made a 20 foot putt that really turned the tables in my direction," said Caljouw. "It gave me the confidence I needed to carry me the rest of the way. If I don't do that she can catch me and has a chance to birdie the final two holes."

"It's just an awesome way to end my junior career, I'm really happy. Maude-Aimée fought back all week and it was a good match…. a great way to end it."

Stephanie Sherlock of Barrie Ont., finished the championship in third place while Susan Nam of Edmonton, Alta., Anita Gahir of Thornhill, Ont. and Sue Kim of Langley, B.C. finished tied for fourth.

Thursday's best round went to Melissa Mabanta of Langley, B.C. who carded a one under par 71. Mabanta finished with a three day total 78-78-71-227 to finish in seventh place.

Yesterday in Inter-provincial team play, British Columbia claimed its fourth title in five seasons. BC finished with a two-day score of 447 while Quebec was second at 459 and Ontario was third at 461.

Next year the Gowan Brae Golf & Country Club in Bathurst, N.B. will host the 2006 Royale National Junior Girls' Championship from July 31 - August 3.
