PORT ALBERNI –  National Development Team member Taylor Kim shares the second round lead of 1-over-par 143 with Anica Yoo at the BC Amateur Women’s Championship at Alberni Golf Club in Port Alberni, BC.


First round leader Kim, of Surrey, stumbled a bit today carding three bogeys and one birdie to finish with a round of 2-over-par 73.


“I was a little nervous heading into today but I’m really happy with my game right now,” said Kim, 16.  “I’m proud of the way I’m playing and tomorrow I’m just going to go out and play my own game.”


Meanwhile Yoo, of Port Coquitlam, counteracted her four bogeys with three birdies for a round of 1-over-par 72.


“My game feels really good right now and I’m confident with the way I’m playing,” said Yoo, 17.  “I played well all last week and I’m hoping to stay consistent for the rest of the tournament and not crash when I get to the final round.”


After shooting even-par 71 for the low round of the day, Amanda Baker, of Nanimo, moved into third place with a two round total of 3-over-par 145.  In a tie for fourth place at 5-over-par 147 is Jamie Oleksiew, of Surrey, and former two-time BC Amateur Champion Christina Proteau, of Port Alberni.


Proteau, 28, had another consistent day today shooting 3-over-par 74 to maintain her lead in the BC Mid-Amateur Women’s Championship.


“I can’t say I’m not feeling the pressure of playing at my home course,” said Proteau, the 2009 BC and Canadian Mid-Amateur Women’s champion.  “I’m not just thinking about the Mid-Amateur but I’m also focusing on the Amateur as well.  Tomorrow is moving day and I know I’m on the verge of having a strong round.”


Sitting in second place in the Mid-Amateur Championship is reigning BC Senior Women’s Champion Jackie Little, of Port Alberni, at 10-over-par 152, followed by Shelly Stouffer, of Nanoose Bay, in third place at 16-over-par 158.


Following second-round play the Zone Team Championship was awarded to Christina Proteau and Jackie Little of Zone 6 (Upper Vancouver Island) at 15-over-par 299 and the Club Team Championship was won by National Development Team members Taylor Kim and Lelaine Kim of the Zone 3 Player’s Club (Fraser Valley) at 8-over-par 292.


The Zone Teams consist of players who are chosen by each zone in advance of the championship and two-person club teams were selected after the first round by taking the two players with the lowest scores from each club with two or more competitors.


The third round will tee-off beginning at 7:30 a.m. PST on Thursday, June 30.
