Twenty-four of the top Vancouver Island juniors from Zone 5 and 6 competed in this year’s Slegg Lumber Junior Ryder Cup under perfect conditions Sept. 27-28 at Glacier Greens Golf Club.
On Saturday the juniors played best ball format. The matches were tight and resulted in a split of three points each. Sunday morning’s format was the tough alternate shot. This format saw Zone 5 take a commanding lead, winning 5-1.
Sunday afternoon’s format saw all players playing individual matches. Zone 5 got off to a hot start and didn’t let up. Zone 5 won six of the matches against Zone 6’s nil. The day was conceded by Zone 6 when the gap became 11-1 with six matches left in the field.
Gary Woods of Slegg Lumber presented the trophy to Rick Gudz, team captain and Zone 5 junior chairman.
Thank you to Slegg Lumber and Gary Woods and Glacier Greens head professional Bill Kelly and to Glacier Greens Golf Course for hosting and supporting this much-anticipated annual event.
