Local product Brayden earning golf titles

Qualicum Beach’s Brayden Eriksen has been lighting it up on the links for Utah Valley University.

Qualicum Beach’s Brayden Eriksen has been lighting it up on the links for Utah Valley University (UVU), which saw him nab the Western Athletic Conference ‘men’s golfer of the week’ title for the second time this season.

Eriksen, a senior at UVU and graduate from Kwalikum Secondary School, finished tied for second in the Loyola Golf Invite tournament. He shot a four under par score of 212 in three rounds of play, shooting under par in two out of three.

Eriksen’s score helped propel his team, the Utah Valley Wolverines, to a tournament victory by six strokes over the Utah Utes and Gonzaga Bulldogs.

“Brayden’s on a roll right now,” said UVU head coach Chris Curran.

“He was a big reason the team won at Loyola. He’s a great kid and works extremely hard. It’s very nice to see him finding success.”

So far this season, Eriksen has earned two top-three finishes in tournament play and has captured the WAC men’s golfer of the week two times as well.
