Hannah Hellyer of Stirling, Ont., fired a three-under 69 to share medallist honours with Madeline Sheils of Boise, Idaho, at Monday qualifying for this week’s CP Women’s Open at Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club.
“My putting was really on point today,” said Hellyer. “It’s a dream come true to play in the CP Women’s Open and get to play against the world’s best.”
Hellyer, an assistant professional at St. Georges Golf and Country Club in Toronto, will be making her LPGA debut at the CP Women’s Open thanks to her performance Monday at Camelot Golf and Country Club, where the top four finishers earned spots in this week’s field.
