Jackson Trozzo won the boys’ 13 and under division by six strokes at the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s Lindsay Kenney Classic over the weekend. The two-day golf tournament was held at Pitt Meadows’ Swan-e-Set Bay Resort.
The 13-year-old Trozzo trailed by three strokes after a rain-soaked opening round, but just like the weather turned around on Sunday for some sunny skies, so too did Trozzo, who bounced back with a solid second round to win by six.
In the boys’ 14-16 division, another Langley golfer, 16-year-old Simon Blaker, finished two strokes back of top spot, finishing with a 154. Both golfers play out of Redwoods Golf Course.
Courtney’s Logan Yanick — who won the 14-16 division — and Blaker both earned international exemptions for the prestigious East Aurora International Junior Masters in New York, and a a U.S. junior amateur regional qualifier of their choice. Blaker also won the skills award.
Other top result for Langley golfers included Hazelmere Golf Club’s Jesse Reichelt finishing fifth in the boys’ 17-19 division with a 164 while Ryan Saran was eighth with a 173.
Redwoods’ Jordan Nielson was 11th.
Reichelt also won the long drive competition.
In the boys’ 14-6 group, Redwoods golfers Hoon Lee and Greg Webster were tied for 15th and 19th, respectively. Two other Redwoods golfers, Euna Han and Rene Cheng were seventh and eighth, respectively, in the girls’ division.
