Langley golfer Danny Im, 16, eked out a narrow victory over the weekend in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour Juvenile Boys Division in Pitt Meadows with the MJT Fall Series at Golden Eagle Golf Club.
Im, a veteran of the tour, fired 67 and 76 (143) to win the title by one stroke.
“I wasn’t playing that great today,” commented Im after his second round.
“I’m happy that I stayed calm, hit the shots I needed to, and hoped for the best.”
Players competed for titles in six divisions on Sept. 19 and 20, all while coping with changeable weather conditions.
The first day brought heavy rain and gusting wind with players scrambling to finish their rounds in the daylight; the second day was a near-ideal mix of sunshine and heat, making for perfect scoring conditions.
