SANDWICH, KENT, England – Team Canada’s Anne-Catherine Tanguay and Augusta James have advanced to match play at the Ladies British Amateur, earning one of the top 64 spots.

Tanguay, 23, of Québec City, posted rounds of 73-75 to finish tied for 9th thru two rounds at Royal St. Georges Golf Club. The recent University of Oklahoma graduate will look to continue her momentum when play resumes tomorrow.

Just sneaking past the cutline was Bath, Ont., native Augusta James, who came in at 8-over par (80-76) to finish tied for 60th.

Laetitia Beck of Israel, a former Monday qualifier at the Canadian Women’s Open, finished at 7-under par to take home medalist honours. The Duke University student posted rounds of 71-70 to win by a two-stroke margin.

Team Canada members Jennifer Ha (Calgary) and Brittany Marchand (Orangeville, Ont.) could not overcome the difficult conditions at St. Georges, missing the cut at 11 and 12 over par, respectively.
