Salmo links home to youth event

Keen weekend competition among local junior golfers

This past weekend Riley Rollick from the Salmo GC took full advantage of playing on his home course as he came out with two shot victory over Brenan Moroney of Birchbank and Aiden Browell of Champion Lake.  All the kids struggled with the small Salmo greens, but Riley was still able to make three birdies on the day.  He finished with a final score of 75.  Both Brenan and Aiden posted identical rounds of 77.

This coming weekend the Junior Circuit will be at Redstone on Saturday and Birchbank on Sunday.  These are great golf courses to play.  We welcome all kids to come out and try the junior circuit.  Please email if you are interested in playing.

In other junior news, Tyler McKay represented the zone well this past weekend as he finished 35 in the very strong field at the CN Pacific in Courtenay on Vancouver Island.  72 kids from all across Canada played, included all of Canadas National Junior Team.  Tyler was able to navigate the very long, 7000 yard Crown Island Course, with rounds of 75,78, 76.  Kevin Kwon from Swaneset GC won the tournament with rounds of 66, 71, 66.
