Trio Share Lead At Canadian Junior Boys’ Championship

Bridgewater, N.S. (Golf Canada) – Kevin Kwon of Pitt Meadows, B.C., Truman Tai of Markham, Ont. and Daniel Luftspring of Toronto each shot 1-under par 70 on Tuesday to share the opening-round lead at the 2012 Canadian Junior Boys Championship at Osprey Ridge Golf Club in Bridgewater, N.S.

Kwon, the reigning Canadian Junior Boys Championship titleholder and a member of Team Canada’s Development Squad, carded five birdies on the day before struggling to close out his round with bogeys on No. 7 and No. 8 and a double-bogey on No. 9.

“Today was good. I played well up until my 16th hole (No. 7). I let my mind wander a bit, and I made a few mistakes,” said Kwon, who recently finished third at the 2012 B.C. Amateur Championship and was T3 at the 2012 B.C. Junior Boys’ Championship. “The mistakes ultimately piled up, but I was making putts, I was hitting fairways, so I was happy with the way I played and tomorrow (Wednesday) I just have to polish it up.”

Tai, the 2011 CN Future Links Quebec Championship winner, posted three birdies on his front-nine and two more on the back nine to go along with four bogeys. Luftspring, meanwhile, made birdie on four of the five par-3s on the golf course.

Kwon, Tai and Luftspring hold a one-stroke advantage over Matt Codd of Red Deer, Alta. and Matthew Scobie of Ajax, Ont., who recently reached semi-final play at the 2012 U.S. Junior Amateur. Codd and Scobie sit at even-par 71.

Team Canada’s Adam Svensson of Surrey, B.C. is T47 at 4-over par 75, while teammate Blair Hamilton of Burlington, Ont. is T127 at 11-over par 82.

In Inter-Provincial Team Championship play, the British Columbia contingent of Matthew Broughton of Victoria, Kevin Ko of Coquitlam, B.C., and Chris Crisologo of Richmond, B.C. carded a combined score of 4-over par 146 to hold a two-stroke advantage over the Nova Scotia team of Brett McKinnon of Glace Bay, N.S., Matt Gallupe of Dartmouth, N.S. and Ryan Nowe of Bridgewater, N.S., and the New Brunswick squad of Justin Shanks and Brett Wilson of Sussex, N.B., and Sam Young of Rothesay, N.B., both of which sit at 6-over par 148.

Defending champion Team Alberta, consisting of Matt Williams of Calgary, Patrick Murphy of Crossfield, Alta., and Nicholas Scrymgeour of Cochrane, Alta., sit T4 alongside the Team Quebec contingent of Hugo Bernard of Mont-St-Hilaire, Que., Joey Savoie of St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que. and Jean-Michel Veillette of Repentigny, Que. at 8-over par 150, four strokes off the lead.

Codd leads the Juvenile Boys competition by two shots over five players – Zackery Secord of Midland, Ont., Curtis Chan of Richmond, B.C., John Boncoddo of Brantford, Ont., Sam Young of Rothesay, N.B. and Crisologo – after opening the championship with a round of even-par 71. Secord, Chan, Boncoddo, Young and Crisologo are tied at 2-over par 73.

The 2012 Canadian Junior Boys Championship resumes tomorrow, Wednesday, August 1, 2012, with second-round play beginning at 7:30 a.m. (ADT). Starting times, post-round results, a full field list and live scoring are available here.

At the conclusion of play on Wednesday, the field will be cut to the low 70 players and ties and Golf Canada will also crown the 2012 Canadian Junior Boys Championship Inter-Provincial team champion.
