Angela Arora cruised to her win, while Christine Wong had to sweat a little en route to her victory at Calgary’s Glencoe Invitational.
Arora, the reigning B.C. Junior & Juvenile Girls champion from Surrey, won the women’s amateur division at Glencoe by nine shots. She fired rounds of 77, 69 and 70 to finish the 54-hole event at even par. Katy Rutherford of Calgary was second, while Jennifer Gu of West Vancouver and Yeji Kwon of Port Coquitlam tied for third at 12-over.
Wong won the female pro division, which was contested for the first time at Glencoe, to earn $15,000. Wong won by two shots but had to survive some anxious moments early on the back nine in Saturday’s final round.
