The players all played 36 holes on Saturday and then 18 on Sunday. McKay opened with rounds of 75 and 74 on the difficult Creston course on Saturday, June 1.

Braden finished second in the 15-19 year division, and Carson Arcuri from Nelson finished third.

In the 14 and under division, Reeves finished first, Kaeden Lane of Grand Forks finished second and Aiden Browell of Fruitvale came in third.

Tyler and Jake will both receive exemptions into the CJGA PING Canadian Junior Match Play Championship and the CJGA Mizuno National Junior Golf Championship.
