GOLF: Victoria golfers lead heading into second day

Thoroughgood and Hayashi on top heading into second and final day of BC Summer Games.

The second day of the 2016 BC Summer Games golf competition tees off this morning.

Victoria’s Nolan Thoroughgood leads the 2016 BC Summer Games boys golf competition heading into the second day of competition Saturday.

Thoroughgood shot a blistering one-under round of 69 Friday to take a two-stroke lead over Mission’s Kyle Claggett, who shot 71 on the course, which frequently hosts high-level competition for the Lower Mainland’s best golfers.

Zach Ryujin of North Vancouver and Joel Veenstra of Smithers are tied for third at four-over.

On the girls side of the ledger, Akari Hayashi of Victoria leads at eight-over. She’s followed by Coquitlam’s Grace Killins and Parksville’s Kayli Melissa three shots back at 11-over.
