Briggs the best at Fraser Valley Junior Golf tourney

Young golfers slugged it out on four Chilliwack-area courses last week in the 2013 Fraser Valley Junior Golf Tournament.

Cole Briggs and Connor McLellan staged an epic battle for supremacy at the Fraser Valley Junior Golf Tournament, held last week at four local courses.

On day one, last Tuesday at the Cultus Lake Golf Club, Briggs shot a 59 to finish one shot behind 17-year-old McLellan.

Round two, at the Meadowlands Golf Course, saw the 16-year-old beat his older opponent by three strokes (128-131). Round three, at the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club, saw Briggs edge McLellan by two strokes (69-71).

The final round was played Friday at the Royalwood Golf and RV Resort.

Jake Scarrow’s two-under-par 70 won the round.

Overall, Briggs claimed the crown as tournament champion with a four-round 276. Scarrow’s blistering final round snuck him into second at 278 and McLellan was third at 279.

Brian Dale swept all four rounds in the 11-year-old division, with scores of 85, 89, 110 and 97.

Ryan Alexander owned the 12-year-old division with scores of 76, 81, 99 and 90.

Christopher Dale took three rounds in the 13-year-old division, with Ross Zerdin taking the title at Meadowlands.

Josh Banford and Mitchell Thiessen slugged it out in the 14-year-old division, with Bamford taking two firsts, Thiessen taking one and the pair tying for top spot at Meadowlands.

Nathan Bahnman went wire to wire in the 15-year-old division.
