Cordova Bay’s Woodland wins national golf title

UVic Vike Megan Woodland ends term at university with victory at Canadian Univeristy/College Championship

Saanich golfer Megan Woodland has ended her five-year term as a UVic Vike with a bang. The Saanich resident and accomplished Cordova Bay Golf Course member/employee won the Canadian University/College Championship in Manitoba on Friday (June 6).

Woodland shot two-over 74 on the final day of the four-round tournament for the top score, an eight-over par, 296, one stroke ahead of second-place Kylie Barros (UBC Thunderbirds).

“It feels amazing and to be honest it’s kind of been my goal since about my second year to come here and to finally win one,” Woodland said. “I’ve come really close the last few years and to pull it off it feels great.”

Oak Bay’s Connor Gann led the Vikes men, posting a strong second-place finish.

Woodland and Vikes captain Brynn Tomie will compete at the World University Championships in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, June 23-27, with former Vikes coach and current team advisor Bryan Carbery.
