Rain and wind greeted 28 of the best junior golfers from the West and East Kootenay over the weekend

Rain and wind greeted 28 of the best junior golfers from the West and East Kootenay over the weekend at the three-round Johnny Bucyk Championship in Creston.

Granite Pointe’s Nolan Renwick and Carson Arcuri were in the mix as the young golfers teed off in a gruelling weekend that included two rounds on Saturday and one on Sunday.

Renwick opened strong with an 85 in the morning while Arcuri struggled with a 96. In the second round of what was a very long day for the juniors, Renwick ballooned to a 97 and Arcuri managed to better his opening round by six strokes with a 91.

On Sunday morning both Renwick and Arcuri put together their best rounds of the weekend, shooting 82 and 87 respectively.

Renwick’s three-day total of 264 was good enough for second place in the 14-and-under division and 10th overall. Arcuri’s 274 total landed him in 16th overall.

Kimberley’s Jared duToit took medalist honors  for the weekend with rounds of 73, 77, 71 for a total of five over par. Du Toit made very few mistakes over the three rounds and his putting was outstanding.
