Sherratt in touch in Canada

CLICK HERE FOR FULL ROUND 1 SCORES Golf Australia National Squad member Jordan Sherratt (SA) is the highest-placed Australian after the opening round of Stroke Play qualifying at the Canadian Amateur Championship in Quebec.

His good form follows his win at the Barrett Amateur Championship earlier in the month.
