Canadian Junior Girls Championship – Player DisqualificationWritten by Golf Canada
Tsawwassen, B.C. – At the completion of the second round of the Canadian Junior Girls Championship at Beach Grove Golf Club in Tsawwassen, B.C., a total of 70 players had made the cut at 21-over par (165).
It was brought to attention of the Tournament Committee late in the evening on Wednesday that Ellie Szeryk of London, Ont., who was sitting alone in second place in the Junior Girls Division and leading the Juvenile Girls Division at 1-under (143), had signed for a score lower than she had taken.
As part of the due diligence, the Tournament Committee reviewed the scorecard with Szeryk personally, which ultimately resulted in a penalty of disqualification.
A total of 69 players will now continue to compete in the final two rounds of the Canadian Junior Girls Championship. A link to updated scoring and third round pairings is here.
