GOLF: Two Morgan Creek teams top tourney in Victoria

VICTORIA — The Morgan Creek Golf Course team of pro Tim Wilson and junior players Matthew Mcconnachie, Riley Janssen and Keaton Cameron shot a two net best-ball score of 124 (-20) on Monday (July 20) to claim the 2015 Jack McLaughlin Memorial PGA of BC Pro-Junior Championship presented by PING, hosted at Olympic View Golf Club in Victoria.

 

The tournament was a first for Cameron, while Mcconnachie and Janssen have played in a few prior; however, the teammates play together very often back at their home course in South Surrey.

"It was honestly a group effort," said Wilson. "There were a couple holes where we had two guys out on the hole, and the other two guys would make a birdie or par along the way. It was one of those days where everything went the way it was supposed to."

Wilson made six birdies on his own en route to a bogey-free 66.

 

"Keaton played out of his mind good," said junior teammate Mcconnachie. "He made everything. I think on the front nine he had 13 putts, and was just walking everything in. Tim was playing well, and Riley always stepped in when we needed him."

 

Coming tied for second was host Olympic View Golf Club (consisting of assistant professional Matt Matheson and juniors Bryce Tickner, Jacob Magee and Tyson Girardet) and a second Morgan Creek team of pro Jeff Lindemulder with juniors Taylor Patrick, Lex Cameron and Angel Lin. The teams finished three strokes behind first at 127 (-17).

 

The PGA of BC Pro-Junior tourney honours the late Jack McLaughlin, a long-time member of the association. During his career, McLaughlin was a tireless promoter of junior golf and an influencer of young, aspiring professionals.
