McKay takes top West Kootenay Zone 1 honours

Birchbank's Tyler McKay earns distinction as Player of the Year

Finale caps an outstanding season for Tyler McKay

The West Kootenay Zone 1 Junior Golf season came to a conclusion Sunday at the Balfour Golf Course.  The tour championship was originally scheduled to be 36 holes, but it needed to be shortened to 27 holes.  The season ended the same way it started with Birchbanks Tyler McKay taking home medalist honours and with that he secured his position as Zone 1 Junior Player of the Year.

Tyler opened the day with a first round two under par score of 70, three shots better than Braden McKay’s 73 and nine better than Brenan Moroney.  Only Brenan and Braden had a mathematical chance to catch Tyler for Player of The Year.  Tyler played his afternoon round in one over par to finished the tournament one under par and three shots better than Braden.

Brenan Moroney finished third in the tour championship and secured top spot for the season in the 17 and 18 year division.  Braden McKay was top player in the 15 and 16 year division and Aiden Browell took home the trophy for the 14 and under division.  Carson Arcuri from Granite Point was awarded the prestigious Emily Beauchamp Award.  This is given to the player who best demonstrates ability, sportsmanship, dedication and improvement.

A number of local juniors will be continuing their competitive schedules very soon.  Tyler and Braden McKay will be attempting to qualify for the US Junior next week. David Launier, Brenan, Tyler, Braden, Carson and Isaac Janzen will all be playing the BC Junior.  Jeff Ashton and Jake Kolodychuk will be playing in the BC Juvenile.
