Juniors solid on links

Strong progress shown in competitive debuts by young golfers

Local golf update

This past weekend saw some very entertaining golf by a number of our juniors. On Saturday in Nelson we had a few players play the circuit for the first time this year.  Emily Ashton, from Castlegar, played in her first ever junior circuit and did very well in the nine hole division.

We also had Kyle Hall and Ben Kelsch from Granite Point and Ely Overennay from Castlegar play their first circuit events of the year.  In the end it was Brenan Moroney defeating Tyler McKay on the first playoff hole.  Both kids birdied the par 5 18th hole to post identical rounds of 75.  In the playoff Brenan had a two putt par to win the playoff.

On Saturday the roles were exactly reversed.  Both Tyler and Brenan posted identical rounds of 74 in regulation and had to go to a playoff.  This time the playoff went 4 holes, with Tyler making a birdie on the par 5, fourth hole to win.
