Local 14 year old Jessica Scapin leads all challengers in the Par 3 Victorian Championships at Parkland Golf Course.
The championship, which kicked off today, saw Jessica shoot to a one shot lead above last years winner Catherine Odgers in the A-grade competition.
Jessica, a Parkland Golf Club member, currently sits on 63 while Ms Odgers sits on 64.
In the B-grade competition Kyabram locals have used their knowledge of the course to their advantage and gained 4 of the top 5 spots.
Kathy Bell currently leads the way sitting comfortably on 72, 4 shots from her closest rival Sandy Scapin on 75.
Parkland Golf Club Captain Sue Reid said that the competition was starting to heat up.
‘‘The competition is very hard at the moment because it is very heavy,’’ she said.
‘‘There is a heavy air and it’s a heavy course so really the course is the winner right now.’’
Parkland President Vin Sleeth said residents of Kyabram should come down to the club and watch some of the region, and Victoria’s, top golfers compete.
The women’s competition will finish tomorrow with the men’s competiton to be played over Saturday and Sunday.
