Christina Proteau of Port Alberni continued her successful golf season Wednesday with an inter-provincial title and a share of the mid-amateur leaderboard at the Royale Cup Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship in Duncan.

The host province, Team British Columbia, captured their 17th inter-provincial championship as members Proteau, Amanda Baker of Nanaimo, and SooBin Kim of Coquitlam, carded a combined 8-over-par to win the team title by one stroke.

Team B.C. defeated Team Ontario, which includes members Augusta James, Taylor Schmidt and Erica Rivard.

The Mid-Amateur division (+25 years) featured a tie atop the leaderboard on Wednesday as round-one leader Proteau was tied with Andrea Kosa of Calgary.

The twosome sat at 12-over-par (156)  heading into the final two rounds, which were scheduled after the News’s deadline.

The Royale Cup Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship is a 72-hole stroke play event. After 36 holes, the field is cut to the low 70 and ties. The inter-provincial team championship also took place in conjunction with the first two rounds of stroke play.

Proteau made the cut with a two-round total of 73-83-156 (12-over-par) and was due to play her third round on Thursday, after the News went to press.

Championship play will be conducted through Friday, July 22 with 18 holes of stroke play each day. Any tie after 72 holes will result in a hole-by-hole playoff.
