NANJING, China – Canada’s duo of Maddie Szeryk and Tony Gil have opened the Summer Youth Olympics team event with a 3-under 69 at the Zhongshan International Club on Sunday.
The opening round, which was better-ball format, saw Gil (Vaughan, Ont.) and Szeryk come in at even par through nine holes before turning it up on the back with three birdies.
Together, Gil and Szeryk sit eight strokes back of Korea’s leading pair, Soyoung Lee (individual gold medalist) and Eun Ho Youm.
Action will resume tomorrow in Monday’s alternate shot format. Gil and Szeryk are set to tee-off in the first group of the day at 8:30 am (CST).
