Langley’s Erin Lee battled back to force a tie-breaking playoff in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour season-ender held Sunday, Nov. 11 in Kissimmee, Flo.
Playing in the 15-18 division, the 14-year-old Lee caught up with leader Sarah Gallagher of Burlinton, Ont. but in the resulting sudden-victory match, Gallagher hung on to win.
“I hit my drive down the middle in the playoff,” said Lee after the tournament.
“The ball unfortunately ended up in a divot. A definite congratulations to Sarah on her win.”
Lee was among 112 elite junior golfers who qualified for the by-invitation contest in seven age divisions for their respective national titles.
