Georgetown’s Jenna Power overcame an eight-shot deficit on the final day to win the women’s low net championship at the Ontario Public Amateur Championship.

Power, a seven handicap, shot round of 87 and 80 at the Don Valley Golf Club in Toronto for a net score of 153. That gave her a one-shot victory over Newmarket’s Lori Steenson.

Trailing by eight shots going into Tuesday’s final round, Power made par on the first hole to cut the deficit to six strokes. She cut Steenson’s lead to two by the sixth hole and took the lead on the 10th hole. She quickly extended her lead to three with a birdie on the par-4 11th hole.

Steenson answered with a birdie of her own on the par-3 13th to pull within two strokes and narrowed Power’s lead to one on No. 16. However, Power made par on the final two holes to match Steenson and maintain her one-shot advantage.

Though Monday’s opening round did not go as well for Power, it did produce one of the highlights of the tournament. Playing the par-4 4th hole, Power holed out from 167 yards for an eagle.
