Kupcho continues to lead Canadian Women’s Amateur

GUELPH – Jennifer Kupcho of Westminster, Colo., continued her hold on top spot at Golf Canada’s Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship at Cutten Fields Thursday.

Kupcho fired five birdies in a round of 4-under 66 in the third round of the tournament to stand at 9-under 201. She has 15 birdies for the tournament.

That gives Kupcho a four-shot lead over the tied duo of Maria Fassi of Mexico and Lilia Kha-Tu Vu of Fountain Valley, Calif. Fassi, who shot a course-record 62 Wednesday, followed that with a 5-under 65 Thursday as she also had five birdies in her round to stretch her bogey-free streak to 31 holes. Vu shot an even-par 70 in a round that had three birdies.

Others under par for the tournament are Rachel Heck of Memphis at 3-under 207 and the pair of Hira Naveed of Australia and Jaravee Boonchant of Thailand at 1-under 209.

The race to be crowned Canadian champion tightened up Thursday. Susan Xiao of Surrey, B.C., continued to lead as she’s at even-par 210 and seventh overall after firing a 73 Thursday.

Grace St-Germain of Orleans, Ont., closed the gap as she shot a 69 to climb to eighth overall at 1-over 211.

Naomi Ko of Victoria, B.C. is at 2-over 212 after a round of 70 Thursday.

Cutten junior girls’ champion Kristen Giles of Georgetown shot a 77 Thursday and stands at 18-over 228. That’s one stroke ahead of four-time Canadian Women’s Amateur champion Mary Ann Hayward of St. Thomas, a former Cutten Fields member.

The number of rounds under-par has increased each day. There were three in the first round, five in the second and eight in the third.
