Kondors face tough challenge at Olympic View

Grade 10 Kwalikum Kondor Jake Lane only one to break 80, finishes in sixth place

The Victoria City Police Junior Golf Tournament turned out to be quite a challenge for all teams involved, including the Kwalikum Kondors, who finished up their tournament in sixth place.

After a tough opening round with winds that changed the way players approached the course, day two wasn’t as bad with the wind but the Olympic View course still proved to be a challenge.

Grade 10 Jake Lane was the only golfer for the Kondor team who cracked 80 over the two days, shooting a round of 79 on day two. Masato Wilson and Tony Trozzo each had a round of 82 on the second day, Aidan Goodfellow shot a round of 84 and Blair Stewart had a tough round on day two, with a score of 90.

“It was a tough course both days,” coach Butch Gayton said. “Everyone had their troubles on the first day with the wind, changing the way that you would normally approach each hole. Regardless of the wind factor, Olympic View is a very challenging course and that showed on day two. We just had trouble getting up and down and we wound up in sixth place. It’s a learning experience though and we’ll take our lumps with this one and move right along.”

The Kondors golf team is back at it today at Morningstar Golf Course for a tournament which is being hosted by the Ballenas Whalers, who will also be in action as well.
