Brad Boyle of Kingston, Ontario once again showed why he is one of the best young prospects in Canadian amateur golf as he captured another NCAA victory on Sunday, March 13th.

The Junior at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) won the St. James Plantation Invitational that was held in Southport, North Carolina.  Boyle shot the low round of the day, 71, on Sunday to beat out his teammate, Derek Baker, by just a stroke for the Individual Title.  With strong leadership by Boyle and Baker the IUP team won the overall title by a whopping 18 strokes in the 36 hole event that featured ten schools.

It was the second individual win for Boyle this season.  He also won the Atlantic Region Invitational back in September.  In six events played in the 2010/2011 season the IUP Crimson Hawks team has five overall victories.  They are also the four-time defending PSAC Conference Champions (NCAA – Div. 2).

The entire team did not have much time to enjoy the win as they are back in action in Wilson, North Carolina on  March 14th/15th for the Barton College Invitational.

Brad’s father is long-time CPGA Ottawa Zone Professional John Boyle.
