While a record-breaking 8-under-63 by Bath, Ont.’s Augusta James proved once again that anything can happen in the game of golf, Megan Osland didn’t tee off today thinking about matching that performance at the Canadian women’s amateur championship.
“I’m thinking more about sticking to the game plan of playing simple golf and remaining steady,” said the Kelowna Golf and Country Club member, before teeing off at 9:10 a.m eastern time today for her final round of the 72-hole national competition in Woodstock, Ont. “I just want to finish well and just stay consistent. We’ll see what happens from there.”
A 1-over 72 on Thursday left Osland in a three-way tie for eighth place with a 213 (68-73-72) total, 12 strokes back of James, who leads pre-tournament favourite, Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont. and Su-Hyun Oh of Australia by six strokes on the Craigowan Oxford Golf and Country Club course.
