Langley’s Caleb Davies takes Fred Wellsby Junior Divot Tour championship

After five qualifier rounds, the championship invitational was held at the Chilliwack Golf Club.

Langley’s Caleb Davies was the big winner of the 2019 Optimist Club of Chilliwack Fred Wellsby Junior Divot Golf Tour.

Following five qualifying rounds, the championship invitational was held July 11 at the Chilliwack Golf Club.

Davies competed in the 14-16 year old division where his low-gross 74 on the par-72 course was one shot better than the 75 posted by Abbotsford natives Isaac Janzen and Tyson Dyck.

Davies’ final round included two birdies and an eagle.

In addition to the championship trophy, the teenager was presented a one year junior membership to the Chilliwack Golf Club.

The ladies trophy went to Chilliwack’s Katelyn Jeske, who won a tense duel with another Chilliwackian, Sarah Armstrong.

The two golfers staged a furious battle through the qualifying rounds and that continued in the final. Competing in the 14-16 year old division, both girls shot matching 79s and needed two playoff holes for Jeske to finally break the deadlock.

Golfers in the 10-and-under division fired their way through nine holes with Isaiah Reddicopp coming out on top.

The Abbotsford native shot a 39 to finish three strokes ahead of another Reddicopp, Noah.

The Roy Gleig Memorial Fund donated $1,000 to this year’s tournament and Erik Hutton and Ross Cardow were at the final round to present the championship trophies.
