Tony Li had never heard of the Willingdon Cup until he found out he was on British Columbia’s team. That happened a couple of weeks ago when Li, a 20-year-old from Vancouver, finished second at the B.C. Amateur Championship at Christina Lake Golf Club.
The top three finishers at the B.C. Amateur play for the province in the Willingdon Cup, an inter-provincial team competition held during the first two rounds of the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship.
“I had never heard of it, but it is something really cool and I was really proud to represent B.C.,” Li said after finishing his second round at Point Grey Golf & Country Club.
