Granite Pointe’s Nolan Renwick fired a 79 to finish second in the local stop of the West Kootenay Junior Golf circuit

In soggy conditions, Granite Pointe’s Nolan Renwick fired a 79 to finish second in the local stop of the West Kootenay Junior Golf circuit on Saturday.

The 14-year-old Nelsonite finished three shots back of 18-year-old Jordan Hoodikoff of Christina Lake.

During an afternoon of rain and plugged tee shots, 20 area juniors braved the Rosemont layout in what was the second stop of the spring circuit. Due to the difficult course conditions, overall scoring was higher than usual.

In the age divisions Garrett Underwood from Champion Lake took first in the 17-18 year old category with an 84, Alex Rugg also from Champion Lake finished second with an 87. In the 15-16 year old division, Amber Arnold of Castlegar was first with an 88 and Isaac Janzen from Creston was second with a 90.

Other Granite Pointe juniors who took part in the Saturday event included Carson Arcuri, Kyle Hall, Benoit Thibault and Ben Kelsch.

On Sunday the junior circuit stopped in Christina Lake where 30 golfers took part. Hoodikoff won his third straight event with a three-under par 69. Arcuri finished second in the 14-15 division with an 81.

The next stop on the tour is schedule for Nakusp this coming Saturday.
