Canada’s hopes of bringing the USGA Senior Women’s Amateur trophy north of the border were crushed Monday as both Canadians who had advanced to match play were eliminated.
Mary Ann Hayward was Canada’s top seeded competitor after placing 10th in the stroke play component. The Aurora, Ont. resident tallied rounds of 76-80 during play on Saturday and Sunday, but couldn’t keep the momentum going in her round of 64 match against 55 seeded Carolyn Creekmore of Dallas where she lost 5&4.
Terrill Samuel of Etobicoke, Ont. also bowed out in her opening-round of match play. The newly crowned Royale Cup Canadian Women’s Senior Champion, who was seeded 14th, lost 4&3 to 51st seeded Lecia Alexander of Stafford, Texas.
Two other Canadians competed in the event but failed to make the 36-hole cut and advance to match play. They were Helene Chartrand of Brossard, Que. (T71st, 90-77—167, +19) and World Golf Hall of Famer Marlene Stewart Streit, a native of Cereal, Alta. (T95, 84-88—172, +24).
