It isn’t a longshot to say a Canadian will win the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur at Waverley Country Club in Portland, Ore.
That’s because it’s an all-Canadian final on Thursday between Judith Kyrinis, a runner-up in 2014, and Terrill Samuel, both from Toronto.
Kyrinis defeated Tara Fleming of Jersey City, N.J. 2&1 in one semi-final on Wednesday, while Samuel edged Patricia Schremmer of Honolulu in 19 holes in the other semi.
Earlier in the day, Kyrinis defeated Lisa McGill of Philadelphia 2&1 in one quarter-final and Samuel beat Patricia Cornett of Mill Valley, Calif., 5&3. Other quarter-final play saw Schremmer defeat Jackie Little of Port Alberni, B.C., 2&1 and Fleming beat Mary Ann Hayward of St. Thomas, Ont., 3&2.
The all-Canadian match gets started at 8:30 a.m. local time.
