Granite Pointe’s Carson Arcuri took part in one of the more dramatic outcomes of the West Kootenay Junior Golf season on Saturday in Nakusp.
Competing in the 14 and under category, the local golfer took Rossland/Trail’s Braden McKay to extra holes after two shot identical 80s after 18 holes.
In the first playoff hole, Arcuri made a fantastic par save from the bunker to stay alive. On the approach on the second extra hole Arcuri ran through the green and could not get up and down to save par. McKay made his par to win the category.
Ryan Brennan of Rossland/Trail won the tournament by shooting a solid two-over 74.
Arcuri was the only Granite Pointe golfer to make the trip north. He finished tied for fourth overall in the tournament.
This weekend’s action shifts to Castlegar for a Saturday event.
