Vancouver clubmates battle for top spot

Tyler McKay in 35th place heading into final day of junior championship

A pair of Vancouver golfers share the lead heading into the final round of the B.C. Junior Boys golf championship in Revelstoke.

On Wednesday, Jordan Lu, a 15-year-old out of the Marine Drive Golf Club, fired a five-under par 67 to drop to six-under par after 54 holes.

Fellow Marine Drive golfer Jordan Yu carded a round of 70 to also sit at six-under heading into today’s final round.

Kimberley’s Jared Dutoit, the second round leader, fired a 73 to fall two strokes off the pace and sit fourth overall at four-under par.

Trevor Vigna of Couitlam is in third at five-under par after his round of 68.

Local colours are being carried by Rossland’s Tyler McKay.

McKay shot a 74 on Thursday to sit in a tie for 35th overall at plus-nine, 15 shots behind the co-leaders.

Other local golfers, Brenan Moroney and Braden McKay, failed to make the 36-hole cut.

Yu, who will compete in the 2013 Canada Summer Games, and Lu will be in today’s final pairing.

They also combined to capture the club trophy at the championship based on the combined total in the first three rounds of play.

The championship’s lowest overall score came from the first group that teed off on Thursday. Port Coquitlam’s Gunntas Sidhu just missed tying the Revelstoke Golf Club’s course record carding a seven-under par round of 65. The Revelstoke course record is 64.

His sensational round left him in a tie for sixth at one-under par.

The top three finishers after today’s round will represent the province on Team B.C., at the 2013 Canadian Junior Boys Golf Championship at the end of July in Ontario.
