Lacombe’s Kuhn leads Championship

Lynn Kuehn of Lacombe finds herself in a rare position following the opening round of the Canadian Women’s Senior Golf Championship Tuesday.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI — Lynn Kuehn of Lacombe finds herself in a rare position following the opening round of the Canadian Women’s Senior Golf Championship Tuesday.

Kuehn shot a four-under par 70 to grab a three-stroke lead heading into the second of three rounds.

Kuehn finished with no bogeys and four birdies.

“I basically hit a lot of fairways and got on the greens and my putter was hot, hot, hot,” she said in a press release. “This is the lowest (score) I’ve ever had in a tournament, but things were just going so easy.”

Kuehn finished in 29th place last year and was 18th in 2010. She was fourth in the Alberta championship.

Team Alberta, which includes Kuehn, Joan Wilson of Calgary and Linda Sharpe of Fort Saskatchewan lead the team competition with a 148 total, two strokes up on Ontario.

Allyson Harrison of Kingston, Ont., sits second at 73 with defending champion Mary Ann Hayward of Aurora, Ont., Lynda Palahniuk of Kelowna, B.C., and Terrill Samuel of Etobicoke, Ont. at 74.

Cheryl Van Dornick of Camrose is tied for 57th at 85.
