Stephanie Sherlock turns pro

Barrie golfer to debut in Burlington

By Glenn Wilkins

Lady linksters throughout North America will soon find out what their younger sisters in U.S. colleges have known for years – that they should look out for Stephanie Sherlock.


The 23-year-old Barrie golfer and graduate of the University of Denver announced this week she was leaving the Canadian national women’s amateur team to turn pro. Sherlock, along with former teammate Sue Kim of Langley, B.C., will play in the Canadian PGA Women’s Championship in Burlington, Aug. 16-18, moving on from there to the Canadian Women’s Open in Winnipeg, Aug. 23-29.
Sherlock, who attended Barrie North Collegiate, was 2007 Canadian women’s amateur champion, and was making her way through the field last weekend at the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina, before losing out in the semifinals. Her amateur career also included eight NCAA victories and a win on the CN Canadian Women’s Tour.
