In the end, Lynn Kuehn simply wasn’t able to match the scorching hot play of Kim Carrington.

Carrington wrapped up the title Thursday in the 54-hole Alberta Senior Ladies Championship at Glendale Golf and Country Club with a score of 225, five strokes ahead of Kuehn.

Kuehn, from Lacombe, was one stroke up on Carrington after an opening-round 79. In round two and three, Carrington posted low scores on both days to capture the title. She shot 72 Wednesday and 73 Thursday, while Kuehn shot 76 and 75. In Wednesday’s round, Carrington cashed in four birdies on way to the even-par round.

Rory Wutzke of Camrose was lights out Wednesday in the Olds Junior Open, at yet another sold-out McLennan Ross Alberta Junior Golf Tour event. Wutzke fired a one-under-par 71 at Olds Golf Course, off-setting four bogies with five birdies. He won by two shots over Quinn Laidlaw of The Winston.

On the Junior Girls side, Olivia Leung took home the title in the first sudden-victory playoff of the tournament. She was tied after 18 holes with Kali Yeske of Calgary’s Valley Ridge GC and nine-year-old Aleah Shields-Ropide. The 14-year-old Leung pared the extra hole to capture her first tournament victory.
