LINDSAY CALJOUW LEADS AT CANADIAN JUNIOR GIRLS GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP

-British Columbia captures fourth inter-provincial title in five years - Attention: Sports Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor COBBLE HILL, B.C.--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 3, 2005) - Lindsay Caljouw of Nanaimo, B.C. looks poised for victory maintaining a three-stroke lead over Maude Aimée LeBlanc of Windsor, Que., heading into the final round of the 2005 Royale National Junior Girl's Championship conducted by the Royal Canadian Golf Association.

Caljouw, who shot a course record 69 yesterday, remained ahead of LeBlanc as both carded even-par 72 rounds. Calijouw, the 2004 Junior Girls Order of Merit winner, leads with a two-day total of 69-72--141 and LeBlanc is second at 72-72--144.

The 18 year-old Caljouw, who carded four birdies and four bogeys, was optimistic about her chances of claiming her first Canadian title.

"I think I struggled today; but I feel really good about where I am right now," said Caljouw. "Tomorrow I'm going out to play my own game and make the shots I need to make."

LeBlanc, who carded an eagle and one birdie was pleased with her play.

"I am hitting the ball well and, like yesterday, I managed to avoid the costly mistakes," said the 16 year-old LeBlanc. "With a few strokes off the lead, I have no other choice than to play aggressively by aiming to the pins."

Stephanie Sherlock of Barrie, Ont. fell back to third position at five over par while Sue Kim of Langley, BC and 2003 champion Anita Gahir of Thornhill, Ont. are tied for fourth at seven over.

Jisoo Keel of Coquitlam, B.C., the nine year-old phoneme who is playing in her first Canadian championship, was the talk of the club as she improved 11 strokes on her Tuesday score, carding an 81. Keel, who stands only 5 foot 1, has impressed many with her composure and maturity considering several competitors here this week are almost twice her age.

In Inter-provincial team play British Columbia successfully defended their 2004 title and claimed their fourth title in five years. The team made up by Caljouw, Caroline Kim and Julie Kim of Port Coquitlam (no relation) as well as Sue Kim shot a two-day team total of 447. Quebéc finished in second place at 459 while Ontario finished third at 461.

Play concludes Thursday with Caljouw, LeBlanc and Sherlock teeing off at approximately 12:27pm (PDT).
