Prior to Wednesday, there were only seven players who could boast back-to-back Canadian Junior Boys Championship titles.
Jean-Philippe Parr from St-Célestin, Qué, has added his name to the list as the eighth.
During the scorching week at Rivershore Estates and Golf Links, temperatures exceeded 40 C, but were not as hot as Parr’s putter.
The 18-year-old University of Tennessee commit shot a 3-under-par 69 in his final round on Wednesday to clinch victory, finishing three shots ahead of the competition.
“It’s always been a tournament I’ve wanted to win, so to go back-to-back is really cool,” Parr said. “It was a lot of fun to play with all of the Team Canada guys. It’s great to have fun too.”
Parr on Monday shot a second-round score of 62 to tie the low Canadian Junior Boys Championship single-scoring day record, set by Calvin Ross in 2017 and matched by Christopher Vandette in 2019.
Ty Turner, the lone golfer from Kamloops participating in the tournament, shot 88 and 84 in rounds one and two, respectively, and did not make the cut.
