Past winners of the Callaway Junior World Golf Championships include Phil Mickleson and some guy named Tiger.
It goes without saying the prestigious tournament, hosted in San Diego this year, is a major tournament for the four Victoria juniors on Canada’s 48-member team.
The Callaway junior world championship draws a field of over 1,200 junior golfers and is a huge week for college coaches, who will be there hunting up-and-coming talent.
Representing Victoria are Naomi Ko in the girls 15-to-17 year old category, and boys Keaton Gudz (13-14), Ethan Ko (11-12) and Jeevan Sihota (9-10).
Carrigan on Team B.C.
Thanks to a course record-tying day at the Copper Point Golf Club in Invermere last week, Victoria’s Kevin Carrigan will be on Team B.C. at the 2013 Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship at Royal Colwood Golf Club and Gorge Vale Golf Club, Aug. 6 to 9.
Carrigan was third at the B.C. Amateur Golf Championship.
