London, Ontario’s Ellie Szeryk carded a 5-under-par 66 at the Garland, Tex., Qualifier to secure a spot in the 2017 U.S. Girls Junior Championship at Boone Valley Golf Club, in Augusta, Mo., from July 24-29.

Szeryk had six birdies and just one bogey on Wednesday at Firewheel Golf Park – Old Course to win medallist honours and finish five strokes clear of Macy Holliday (Dallas, Tex.) and Haley Vargas (Lubbock, Tex.) who carded even par 71’s to also advance.

Ellie is the younger sister of Team Canada Amateur Squad member Maddie Szeryk.

The younger Szeryk advanced to the round-of-64 at the Women’s Western Golf Association Amateur Championship last week, an event her sister went on to win.

Earlier in June Szeryk finished second at the Future Links driven by Acura Quebec Championship at Milby Golf Club after a 4-under-par 69 in the final round and in May she finished 2nd at the Future Links driven by Acura Ontario Championship at Brockville Country Club.

Two other Canadians have already qualified for the 2017 U.S. Girls Junior Championship.

Phoebe Yue advanced from the Merced, Calif., qualifier and Euna Han won medallist honours at the Kent, Wash., qualifier to book her ticket to Boone Valley.
