Osoyoos hosting junior boys golf championship

Osoyoos Golf Club welcomes the B.C. Junior Boys championship

Osoyoos Golf Club hosted the B.C. Junior Boys’ championship presented by Canadian Direct Insurance July 7-10. The event is for players aged 18 and younger as of Aug.1. Players qualify through their zone. There is 72 holes of stroke play with a cut after 36 holes.

Seventeen-year-old Zaahidali (Ziggy) Nathu had the round of his life Wednesday as he carded a (-7) round of 65 to take the lead halfway through the championship.

Nathu had eight birdies and only one bogey, setting a mark no other golfer could match. Nathu sits at (-9) 135 after two straight under-par rounds in Osoyoos.

“I’m very excited,” said the Richmond native on the B.C. Golf website. “I hit it well today, I made some putts and it’s a round I’m pretty proud of. It hasn’t really kicked in at this moment what I did, but I have to try and keep it out of my mind, concentrate on the next round and continue to play well.”

Spectators are welcome to attend this free event and cheer on the next wave of great British Columbia golfers.
