~Winners Determined After 18 Holes of Play~
Langley, B.C. (October 2, 2015) – Overnight rain saturated the golf course and afternoon winds gusting to over 60km/hour forced cancellation of the final round of the CJGA BC Fall Series at Belmont Golf Course in Langley, B.C. First round scores when conditions were wet, but playable, would determine the winners in each age division.
Twelve-year old Brycen Ko of Richmond, B.C. won his first CJGA tournament with a score of 76 (+6). Ko won the Boy’s 14 & Under division on the tough par-70 layout that extends to over 6,013 yards. Local golfer Paul Kim finished one stroke back in second place with a score of 77 (+7).
West Vancouver golfer Thomas Verigin carded a two-over par 72 on the 6,416 yard Belmont Golf Club to win the Boys 15-19 division. Verigin carded a one-under 34 on the front nine then came home with a three-over 38 to finish with a solid score of 70 (E). Langley golfers Andy Kim and Willis Lee were tied for second place at 74 (+4). Kim carded nines of 36 (+1) and 38 (+3), while Lee shot 34 (-1) and 40 (+5) on each respective nine.
Sarah Lawrence from Duvall, WA was not happy finishing second two weeks ago at the first stop of the BC Fall Series at Meadow Gardens GC. Lawrence played steady on the 5,765 Belmont course, carding a round of 73 (+3) to earn first place honors. Surrey’s Sharon Park stumbled early in her round, but played well coming in to shoot a round of 78 (+8), earning second place in the process.
Seymour G.C. member and West Vancouver resident Jennifer Gu won the Girls 14-under division shooting a round of 84 (+14). Burnaby golfer Emily Xu was alone in second place after a round of 88 (+18).
