Host club in tight race for top spot as province's top young golfers compete at Crown Isle




Mark Isfeld Ice are in first place following the first round of play in the 2013 B.C. High School AAA Golf Championship, being held May 28-29 at Crown Isle Golf Club.

The host team carded a 22-over round of 310 on Tuesday as the players battled gusting winds and occasional drops of rain. Prince of Wales was second at 24-over 312 and Walnut Grove was third at 25-over 313. St. Georges was fourth at 26-over 314, six strokes up on fifth-place Point Grey.

“It’s really tight,” for top spot in the team competition, noted Isfeld athletic director and tournament chair Colin Cunningham.

Logan Yanick led the way for Isfeld, carding a three-over 75 that included one of four first-round eagles – that coming on the 485-yard fifth hole.

Yanick (who won the 150-yard KP contest Monday night as part of the skills competition) was in a five-way tie for fifth place. Jordan Lu (Prince of Wales) was the first-round leader at 4-under 68 after reeling off six birdies.

Isfeld’s Tyson Slater was 15th at 5-over 77, Matt Irvine was in a seven-way tie for 18th at 7-over 79 that included Ice teammate Ryan Snook while Nick Crookall of the Ice was in a two-way tie for 79th after a first-round 17-over 89.

The second round got underway at 8 a.m. Wednesday with a shotgun start. Following completion of play (and playoffs, if needed), the awards will be handed out Wednesday.
