Jennifer Kirby has the record to win her second Royale Cup Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship.

After a stellar 2010, Jennifer Kirby of Paris, Ont. has emerged as Canada’s top female amateur golfer.

Based on Golf Canada's National Order of Merit, presented by Under Armour, Kirby, the 2010 Team Canada member and sophomore at the University of Alabama, was a clear #1.

She earned 1784 points besting runner-up Sara Maude Juneau (Fossambault, Que.) by more than 300 points.

Many of those points came from a great run that saw her finish a semifinalist at the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, a quarterfinalist at the British Ladies Amateur Championship and ninth individually at the Copa de las Americas.

Jennifer successfully defended her title at the Ontario Women’s Amateur Championship in 2010. She also competed at the 2010 CN Canadian Women’s Open at St. Charles Country Club and the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship where she made the cut.

She comes into the 2011 Royale Cup Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship with a 7th place finish in 2010 after winning the tournament in 2009. At the Royal Oaks Estates & Golf Club in Moncton New Brunswick, Kirby edged BC's Sue Kim by one shot.
