A new Junior Girls champion will be crowned, but Victoria’s Willy Bishop will defend his Junior Boys title this week when the B.C. Junior Boys & Girls Championships are held at Morningstar Golf Course in Parksville.
Bishop collected both the Juvenile and Junior Boys titles last summer. Surrey’s Angela Arora, who won last year’s B.C. Junior Girls’ title, will not play in Parksville. Arora, like Bishop, is now a member of Golf Canada’s national junior team and is currently playing tournaments in the United States.
West Vancouver’s Jennifer Gu, who finished second at last week’s B.C. Women’s Amateur Championship at Summerland Golf Club, is in the Junior Girls field in Parksville.
The 72-hole competition runs Tuesday through Friday and has attracted a field of 111 boys and 45 girls aged 18 and under. (Click HERE to video Preview from Morningstar GC)
