Parksville golfer fourth in B.C. Seniors’

Josee Deslauriers of Morningstar Golf Club narrowly misses Team B.C. spot with strong showing in B.C. Senior Women's Championship in Kelowna

Josee Deslauriers of Parksville’s Morningstar Golf Club closed with a 7-over-par 79 to tie for fourth place in the B.C. Senior Women’s Golf Championships Thursday at Kelowna Golf & Country Club.

Deslauriers finished the three-day, 54-hole tourney with a score of 234, six strokes back of winner Holly Horwood of Vancouver, and missed a qualifying place on Team B.C. by one place.

Horwood shot an even-par 72 on the final day to overtake second-round leader Jackie Little of Port Alberni and post a two-stroke victory (228-230). Penny Baziuk of Sidney, who led the opening round, finished third at 233 and grabbed the final spot on the three-member B.C. team to represent the province in the Canadian Senior Women’s Championships.

Deslauriers was among the most consistent golfers over the three days of play, shooting rounds of 78, 77 and 79 to match Sandra Turbide of Maple Ridge for fourth overall. That consistency helped her to the top spot in the women’s Stableford A flight by a single point over Horwood. Deslauriers amassed 109 points across the three rounds to Horwood’s 108.
