Brittany Marchand (Symetra Tour)

Canadian Brittany Marchand carded a 3-under-par 68 in round one of the Donald Ross Centennial Classic at French Lick Resort, in French Lick, Ind.

The Orangeville, Ont., native had four birdies and just one bogey in her opening round at the Donald Ross Course at French Lick to sit one shot back of Australian Hannah Lee who carded a 4-under-par 67 to take sole possession of first.

A graduate of the Team Canada Amateur Squad Marchand recently made her first cut at an LPGA Tour event playing into the weekend at the Manulife LPGA Classic in Cambridge. She started the fourth round just five shots off the lead but finished T46 after a final round 81.

Marchand’s best result this season on the Symetra Tour was a T11 at the IOA Championship presented by Morongo Casino Resort & Spa.

Megan Osland (Kelowna, B.C.) is T16 at 1 under par after an opening round 70. Team Canada Young Pro Squad Golfer Anne-Catherine Tanguay from Quebec City is T26 at even par.
