Par for the course was good enough for Naomi Ko to hold on for the B.C. Golf Association junior girls championship on Friday in Kamloops.
The 16-year-old, playing out of the Royal Collwood Golf Club in Victoria, shot a 73 on the final round of the 72-hole competition at The Dunes to edge Kathy Lim of Langley by two strokes (286-288) for the provincial title. Alix Kong of West Vancouver finished third at 289.
All three will represent B.C. at the Canadian junior championship tournament in Thornhill, Ont. July 28-Aug. 1.
Meanwhile, Mackenzie Barrie of the Vernon Golf and Country Club pulled into a 14th place tie overall with Kylie Jack of Two Eagles Golf Club for the top Zone 2 (Thompson-Okanagan) score in the four-day event.
Barrie, coming off a freshman year with the University of Wyoming golf team, fired a final-round 73 for a 305 total. She opened the 48-player tournament with a 78 and followed with scores of 76 and 78.
