Good finish for Rossland golfer

Crowe student Braden McKay finished in 14th spot after shooting a 12-over-par 156 in the two-day tournament at Pagoda Ridge Golf Course.

Rossland native Braden McKay went tee-to-tee with B.C.’s best golfers on the weekend at the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s world qualifier.

The 16-year-old J. L. Crowe student finished in 14th spot after shooting a 12-over-par 156 in the two-day tournament at Pagoda Ridge Golf Course in Langley on the weekend.

In Saturday’s round McKay finished just two shots back of the eventual winner Alex Francois who opened with a 2-over 74, but caught fire in the second round scoring a 4-under-par 68 to take the Juvenile title with a score of 142. The Burnaby native was the only juvenile golfer to break 70 on the day, birdieing three holes, and dropping an eagle on the par-4 13th to beat out Alex Park (74,76) of Vancouver by four strokes.

McKay opened with a 76 and shot an 80 on Sunday to close out the tournament, birdieing the final hole to end on a positive note.

Alysha Lau, 14, of Richmond took home the Junior Girls title with an eight-stroke victory over Sara Lawrence (146) of Duvall, Wash. Callum Davison, 13, of Duncan won the Bantam Boys with a 139, and Tyler Roope nailed down the win in the Junior Boys with a 142 and a four-shot win over Scott Lemon of Winnipeg.
