Svensson continues march to title

Defending champ cards one-under par round to carry seven-stroke lead into final day

Surrey’s Adam Svensson carded his third-straight below-par round as he continued his march towards the 2011 B.C. Junior Boys golf championship at the Rossland-Trail Country Club on Thursday.

Svensson, the defending B.C. champion, parred the first seven holes in Round 3 then posted four birdies and three bogeys in the next 11 holes to finish the day with a one-under par 71.

His three-day total leaves him at 10-under par, seven strokes ahead of Kevin Kwon of Pitt Meadows and Curtis Chan of Richmond. Both sit at three-under par.

Brian Jung of Coquitlam is fourth at one-under par thanks to a five-under round of 67.

However, it would Vernon’s Connor Kozak with the day’s best round carding a seven-under 65 to move into fifth spot.

The Spalumcheen Golf and Country Club member rang up five birdies and an eagle on his day.

Three local players remain in the competition following Wednesday’s cut.

Tanner Kopan of Christina Lake posted the low local round of 77, one stroke ahead of RTCC’s Brenan Moroney who fired his second consecutive 78.

Both golfers sit tied for 62nd spot at plus-16.

Redstone’s Kevin Bennett posted a 79 on Thursday to sit tied for 65th at 17-over par.

The championship concludes today.
