Lacombe’s Brady McKinlay shoots 13-under to finish 2nd at Canadian Junior Boys Championship

McKinlay went 65,68 on final two days in New Brunswick

Brady McKinlay had a blistering Saturday and Sunday at the 2019 Canada Junior Boys Championship in Hartland, New Brunswick, scoring 65 and 68 leading to second play finish.

McKinlay — who finished at 13-under for the tournament held at Covered Bridge Golf & Country Club — ultimately saw Christopher Vandette of Beaconsfield, Que. take home the title, finishing 14-under for the tournament.

“I was a little bit disappointed with the first two days,” McKinlay told Golf Canada following the tournament. “The last two days were picture-perfect almost, I just needed a couple of more shots. To keep going lower and lower up until the last day and then to do 4-under today was really good.”

McKinlay shot rounds of 72,70, 65 and 68 and the second place finish comes after finishing tied for second at the Future Links, driven by Acura Western Championship and a third place finish at the Alberta Junior Championship.

Sylvan Lake’s Carter Graf captured third place, finishing at 11-under par.
