Golf

Seventeen year old, Tyler McKay of Rossland won the Johnny Bucyk championship this past weekend in Creston.

The players all played 36 holes on Saturday and then 18 on Sunday. Tyler opened with rounds of 75, 74 on the difficult Creston course on Saturday.

This was good enough to have a nine shot lead over his brother Braden McKay who posted 81, 77 and Jake Reeves of Sandpoint Idaho who had rounds of 76 and 84.

On Sunday the weather turned a bit worse, and Tyler struggled out of the gate. He posted an 82, but was still able to hold on and win.

Braden McKay finished second in the 15 – 19 year division, and Carson Arcuri from Nelson finished third.

In the 14 and under division, Jake Reeves of Sandpoint  finished first, Kaeden Lane of Grand Forks finished second and Aiden Browell of Fruitvale came in third.

Tyler and Jake will both receive exemptions into the CJGA PING Canadian Junior Match Play Championship and the CJGA Mizuno National Junior Golf Championship.
