GARVEY GOES LOW TO LEAD NEW ZEALAND AGE GROUP CHAMPIONSHIPS

7/09/2017

Canterbury’s number one amateur Amelia Garvey has carded an incredible round of seven-under, 67 (Par 74) to be tied for the lead after the second round of the New Zealand Women’s Age Group Championships.

Her exciting round included five birdies and an eagle on the par five, tenth to catch up with overnight leader and tournament favourite, Ayean Cho.

This has quickly become a two-horse race with the next best being Julianna Hung and Eun Kyung Lee who are seven shots behind at two-under par.

Tomorrow’s final round will be a great spectacle as these two young talents go head to head. Garvey will be trying to match up with the world number 38 amateur in Cho, who has the far more experience, making this a perfect test for one of New Zealand’s up and coming golfers.

Overnight leader Jake Lee is just one stroke back after struggling in the wind and is now joined by Jack Clout and Greg Shaw to create a mouth-watering final round where a new champion will be crowned.
