- Kim cards a final round of 6-under par 66; Anderson converts four birdies to win -
Parksville, B.C. (Golf Canada) – Anna Kim of Toronto and Zach Anderson of Nanaimo, B.C. captured their respective Junior Girls and Junior Boys division titles at the CN Future Links Pacific Championship at Morningstar Golf Club in Parksville, B.C.
In the Junior Girls division, Kim, 18, a member of Team Canada, carded an exceptional 6-under par 66 to pull her ahead of first and second round leader Naomi Ko, 14, of Victoria, B.C. Kim, who won the 2011 CN Future Links Atlantic and Quebec Championships, played a bogey-free round that included six birdies, giving her a three-shot victory with a three-day tally of even-par 216 (76-74-66).
With this win, Kim earns a spot at the 2012 Royale Cup Canadian Junior Girls Championship, which will run July 30 – August 3 at River Spirit Golf Club in Calgary. In addition, she receives an exemption into a 2012 CN Canadian Women’s Tour event.
Ko led by a single shot going into Sunday, but she faced an up-and-down final round that included five birdies, four bogeys and a double bogey, leaving her at 3-over par 219 (74-72-73) for the tournament.
Kim’s Team Canada teammates rounded out the top five finishers, with Brooke Henderson, 14, of Smiths Falls, Ont. finishing alone in third at 7-over par (223) thanks to three birdies on the back nine. Brogan McKinnon, 17, of Mississauga finished T4 at 12-over par alongside Taylor Kim, 17, of Surrey, B.C., who also placed T4 at the 2011 CN Future Links Pacific Championship.
In the Junior Boys division, Anderson, 15, posted a final round of 2-over par 74 that included four birdies, pulling him ahead of second round leader Jared Du Toit, 16, of Kimberley, B.C., and giving him a three-day tally of 6-over par 222 (74-74-74). A co-leader after the first round, Anderson sat two shots behind Du Toit going into the final day of competition, but a double bogey on No. 18 left Du Toit in a five-way tie for second place with a total of 7-over par 223 (74-72-77).
Team Canada member and 2010 CN Future Links Pacific Championship winner Adam Svensson, 18, of Surrey, B.C. sits with Du Toit in T2, alongside Team Canada teammate and 2011 CN Future Links Pacific runner-up Kevin Kwon, 17, of Pitt Meadows, B.C., Emmett Oh, 17, of Calgary, and Mark Valliere, 17, of Courtenay, B.C.
With this victory, Anderson earns an exemption into the 2012 Canadian Junior Boys Championship which will be contested July 30 – August 3 at Osprey Ridge Golf Club in Bridgewater, N.S. The top five other finishers in the Junior Boys division- Kevin Kwon, Emmett Oh, Mark Valliere, Adam Svensson, and Jared Du Toit- will also earn this exemption.
