Hayashi sisters represent zone at provincials

Uplands golf sisters head for B.C. Junior Golf Championships next week

Uplands sisters Mirai and Akari Hayashi will represent Zone 5 at the B.C. Junior Girls Golf Championships at The Dunes July 1 to 4.

After two days of play at Cedar Hill and Gorge Vale golf courses June 14 and 15, Mirai emerged victorious to take home the Dale Shaw Trophy with a total gross score of 159 (76 and 83). Playing conditions for both days were unexpectedly cold and windy.

Mirai’s 83 at Gorge Vale is somewhat amazing as she was fighting her driver the entire front nine, and badly twisted her knee on her approach to the eighth green. A quick tape-up after nine gave her some relief, although she continued to limp and flex her knee the entire back nine;  Akari was runner-up with a gross total of 176 (84 and 92).

The Norma Kronlund Trophy was presented to Bee Borvornsuwan of Uplands as the Low Net winner with a total of 146. Borvornsuwan arrived in Canada from Taiwan just over a month ago as an exchange student at Mt. Doug secondary school.
