Two Victoria golfers runners-up for B.C. juvenile title

A pair of Victoria golfers finished as runners-up in the B.C. Juvenile Boys’ and Girls’ Championship (for those ages 16 and under) at Chilliwack Golf and Country Club on Thursday.

Jeevan Sihota of Gorge Vale Golf Course — who recently captured the prestigious U.S. Kids Golf World Championship in North Carolina in his age group — finished second among the boys in Chilliwack after a final-day even-par 72 followed his opening rounds of 71 and 70.

Akari Hayashi of Upland Golf Club was also second in the girls’ competition.

Khan Lee of Langley turned in a spectacular final-round 6-under 66 to steal the boys’ top prize after he had recorded 75-70 on the first two days.

Aidan Goodfellow of Pheasant Glen placed tied for third (73-70-72) and Nolan Thoroughgood of Royal Colwood, who recently won the B.C. Men’s Amateur, was tied for sixth (74-69-75). Callum Davison of Duncan was tied for 10th (78-70-73).

On the girls’ side, Hayashi began the day tied for the lead, but slipped to a 3-over 75 to finish with a 216 total (68-73-75), five shots in arrears to Hannah Lee of Surrey, who recorded rounds of 70-71-70 to win the title.

Lee’s 2-under 70 on Thursday was the only round under par among the girls.

Shirin Anjarwalla of Nanaimo (72-76-74) placed fifth overall.
