In golf, steadiness is next to holiness and Adrienne White showed she's a model of consistency.

So much so, the Red Deer golfer won her second straight Clarica Alberta Ladies Amateur yesterday, beating 29 of the best golfers in the province.

The 20-year-old shot a 2-over 72 for an 11-over total after four rounds, cruising to a three stroke victory over Sherwood Park's Jil Swenson at Ponoka's Wolf Creek golf course.

White said the win was just as good as her first one at the Medicine Hat Golf and Country Club last July.

"They both feel pretty good but this one was a little different in that I was coming off an injury where I rested for a month," said White.

She nursed a sore right wrist that was bugging her, so White didn't play from the middle of May to mid June.

"It's nothing major but I had to take a month off then started working on my short game and went from there," she said.

The University of Louisville student won't be at the Canadian Amateur at the Squamish Valley Country Club in B.C., which runs from Aug. 8-12.

Instead, she's going to spend a few weeks in jolly old England before beginning her junior year of university.

And even though she's still got several years of school left, White is already thinking about what she needs to do to become a pro.

"I'm looking into it now and talking to some people about sponsorship money and things like that and how you go about getting it. I'm also looking at some different tours but I still have three years of college left," she said.

Calgarian Meaghan LeBlanc shot a course-record 67 yesterday and wound up in third.

LECUYER REMAINS IN FRONT: Ryan Lecuyer is still the man to beat at the Clarica Alberta Men's Amateur.

The Edmontonian fired a 2-under 70 at Edmonton's Glendale Golf and Country Club yesterday.

Lecuyer's at 5-under 211 and is being chased by Lethbridge's Ryan Vallely,who shot a 3-under 69 yesterday and is one shot off the pace.
