International field for Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship

GUELPH – It might be the Golf Canada’s Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship, but an international field is entered in the tournament set to be played next week at Cutten Fields.

A total of 156 golfers have entered the event and 64 of those are from outside Canada.

There are 92 Canadians entered in the tournament including Guelph natives and John F. Ross CVI graduates Katie McTaggart and Rachel Pollock and Cutten Fields member Kristen Giles of Georgetown. Ontario accounts for 48 of the Canadian entrants.

Pollock plays for East Tennessee State as a senior in NCAA women’s golf play. She was 23rd at the River Landing Classic, 29th at the SoCon Championships, 35th at the 3M Augusta Invitational and 39th at the Red Raider Invitational.

McTaggart competes for Western Illinois as a sophomore and was 48th at the Bradley Spring Invitational and 58th at the Indiana State Spring Invitational

There are 43 golfers from the U.S. entered as well as three apiece from China, Colombia and New Zealand, two apiece from Australia, Mexico and Thailand and one each from Hong Kong, Indonesia, Nigeria, Paraguay, Philippines and South Korea.

The field includes all four members of Canada’s amateur team – Maddie Szeryk of London, Ont., Naomi Ko of Victoria, B.C., Jaclyn Lee of Calgary and Grace St. Germain of Ottawa and national development team members Mary Parsons of Delta, B.C., Monet Chun of Richmond Hill, Chloe Currie of Mississauga and Hannah Lee of Surrey, B.C.

Also in the field are five players in the top 15 of the world amateur golf rankings. They are No. 4 Jennifer Kupcho, No. 5 Andrea Lee, No. 7 Lilia Kha-Tu Vu, No. 9 Mariel Galdiano and No. 12 Hannah O’Sullivan. All five are from the U.S.

There’ll be a practice round Monday before the tournament on the 6,330-yard, par-70 Cutten Fields course is to start Tuesday.

The field will be reduced to the low 70 and ties following the second round Wednesday for the final two rounds on Thursday and Friday.

The tournament champion and the low Canadian will earn exemptions into the U.S. women’s amateur championship tournament and next month’s LPGA’s CP Women’s Open at the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club.
