Out-of-towners may have taken the top team spots in the annual Victoria Police High School Golf Tournament at Olympic View in Colwood, but local golfers were in the hunt for the individual crown.

Alex Park of Vancouver’s St. George’s, who shot a modest 77 on day 1 last Tuesday, improved by 10 strokes on day 2 Wednesday. His tournament-best 67 gave him the individual crown at 144 by one stroke over Mount Doug’s Mike Griffin, who shot 74-71–145.

Keaton Gudz of Spectrum was in a tie for third at 146 with both Edward Metcalfe and Ian Kim from Surrey’s Earl Marriott, and Santiago Buorro from Kwalikum in Qualicum Beach.

Other top finishing local golfers included Lawren Rowe of Mount Doug, seventh at 147 (72-75); Jeff Riches of Claremont, eighth at 152 (79-73), and Luc Quigley of Claremont, tied for 10th at 154 (80-74).

Earl Marriott 1 from Surrey collected the team title, posting a 448 total. The foursome, including Kim, Metcalfe, Eric Macdonald and Seo Ho Choi was consistent, going 223-225 over the two days.

Finishing second at 457 was Kwalikum 1, followed by St. George’s 1 in third at 462, Claremont 1 fourth at 466 and Earl Marriott 2 fifth at 468.

Other Greater Victoria schools in the top 20 were Mount Douglas 1 at 474 in seventh spot, Spectrum 1 in eighth at 476, Belmont 1 ninth at 481 and Claremont 2 in 11th at 486.

Teams from around the Capital Region, Vancouver Island and Lower Mainland played the 36-hole tournament.
