Trio tied for lead at CN Canadian Women's Tour event Add to ...

Teenager Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., is one stroke back of the leader at the CN Canadian Women’s Tour opener at Richmond Country Club in Richmond, B.C.

The 14-year-old Team Canada member and number two ranked amateur player in Canada shot an opening round 1-under 71 to sit in a six-way tie for second behind the American trio of Joy Trotter, Tara Goedeken and Allison Hanna.

Trotter, a runner up at last season’s Tour opener in Squamish, B.C., converted four birdies on the day, while Goedeken and Hanna converted four and three respectively en route to sitting atop the leaderboard through 18 holes of play.

Goedeken, who competes primarily on the LPGA's developmental Symetra Tour, said confidence and poise will be the key to winning it all in the second and final round on Wednesday.

“It’s a shoot-out,” said Goedeken. “I came into the tournament with no fear, and I try to go for every hole and see if I can birdie all of them. I’ll just go out and have fun [Wednesday] do the best I can, and if I do that, I’m happy with that.”

Jisoo Keel of Coquitlam, B.C., the 2011 CN Canadian Women’s Tour Top Amateur of the Year, also finds herself tied with fellow amateur Henderson for second place.

Jessica Shepley of Oakville, Ont., the two-time defending Player of the Year, is tied for 11th spot after carding a round of even-par 72.

Several current and former members of Team Canada also produced notable opening-round finishes, including Christine Wong of Richmond, B.C., who sits tied for 14th at 1-over 73 alongside Team Canada graduate Sue Kim of Langley, B.C. Toronto’s Anna Kim, fresh off a victory at the 2012 CN Future Links Pacific Championship in Parksville, B.C., and Brogan McKinnon of Mississauga, Ont. are tied for 21st at 2-over 74.

Kelowna, B.C. native Samantha Richdale is also tied for 21st, while Team Canada’s Augusta James of Bath, Ont. is alone in 28th place at 3-over 75.

A total of 20 golfers find themselves within three strokes of the lead entering the final round. The winner will take home $10,000 in prize money plus an exemption into the 2012 CN Canadian Women’s Open.
