Chilliwack’s Mitchell Thiessen placed 12th at the BC Golf Juvenile Boys’ Championship, a three-round tourney was held Aug. 18-20 at Vernon’s Spallumcheen Golf and Country Club.
Thiessen struggled through a tough opening round 75 (four over par) that included four bogeys.
The teenager bounced back with a solid second round 71 that put him back in the championship hunt, carding birdies on the sixth and 16th holes.
But he cooled off again in round three, shooting a three-over-par 74 that saw him record a birdie on 10 and bogeys on four other holes.
He finished 15 shots behind the tourney winner, Coquitlam’s A.J. Ewart.
