ST. ANDREWS, NB – With a stacked leaderboard following the first 36 holes of the event, the third and final round of the NB Women’s Provincials, Driven by Audi Moncton shaped up to be a true test of championship golf.
Round 3 leaders in the Amateur, Mid-Amateur, and Senior Divisions took to the course at 12:40 and 12:50 PM and were greeted by the natural defense of the Algonquin, high winds, rolling fairways, strategic bunkers, and smooth greens. Featured in the final two pairings were the 2021 NB Women’s Amateur, Mid-Amateur, and Senior Champion, Leanne Richardson of Country Meadows, Petitcodiac’s Laura Wesselius, USGA Member, Chrissie Spidell, Belvedere’s Bailey Carr, NCAA athlete and Fox Creek Member, Julie Gauvin, and Amateur and Mid-Amateur leader, Margo Dickinson.
Continuing with her smooth play, Golf NB Member, Margo Dickinson carded a final round 76 to capture the 2022 NB Women’s Amateur & Mid-Amateur Crowns. A three-round score of 232 (78,78,76) would see Dickinson finish 2 shots ahead of Fox Creek’s Julie Gauvin, who finished in solo second after recording the low round of the event with a +3, 75. Belvedere’s Bailey Carr placed third with a tournament total of +23 after three consistent rounds of 78,81, and 80.
