Mary Ann Hayward of Aurora, Ont., is leading the Canadian Women’s Senior Golf Championship heading into today’s final round in Vernon.
Hayward, who was inducted into the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame in 2007, shot 75 on Tuesday and came back with a 67 on Wednesday at Spallumcheen Golf Club. Hayward won Canadian senior women’s championships in 2010 and 2011.

One stroke back in fourth is Vancouver’s Holly Horwood, who was the first-round leader after posting 71. She shot 76 on Wednesday and finished second in the super-senior (60-plus) division, behind Murdoch. The super-senior competition was a 36-hole event, while the 54-hole seniors competition runs concurrently.
B.C. won the interprovincial competition by three strokes over Quebec. The B.C. squad comprised Little, Kelowna’s Linda Palahniuk and Karen Pultz of Surrey.
The lone Kamloops woman in the tournament, Marie Ann Zwingli, shot 99-102 to miss the cut.
