Bosquet second in Summerland

Vernon’s Austin Bosquet claims second place at Saturday’s North Zone Junior Golf Tour stop in Summerland.

Vernon’s Austin Bosquet lost to James Casorso of Kelowna on the second playoff hole in Saturday’s North Zone Junior Golf Tour stop in Summerland.

Both players carded 72, with Vernon brothers Chris and Matt McEachran-Law shooting 77 to tie for fourth. Vernon’s Mackenzie Barrie, with 83, and Russel Day, with 84, finished 20th and 21st respectively.

Kelowna’s Lionel Taylor carded an even-par 70 to claim Sunday’s stop at the Penticton Golf & Country Club. Chris McEachran-Law posted a 79, Bosquet fired an 80 and Matt McEachran-Law produced an 81 to finish well back.

Zone play resumes May 4-5 with stops at Vernon Golf & Country Club and Salmon Arm.

The high school golf season, wiped out last year, teed off two weeks ago at Spallumcheen with Bosquet leading the Kal Lakers to the opening team win, posting an even-par 71. Alex Kreutz chipped in with a 77 to aid the Lakers.

Week 2 was at Vernon last Thursday, and this time it was Bosquet’s friend and rival Matt McEachran-Law firing the even-par 72 to lead his Seaton Sonics to the team title. Mac Gourdine, Barrie and Day had solid efforts for Seaton. High School competition continues this week in Salmon Arm.
