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.
