Junior golf championship: two New Brunswickers continue the adventure

Julien Belliveau of Fox Creek Club in Dieppe is in the 42nd place after three rounds at the Canadian Junior Men’s Golf Championship held at the Richelieu Valley Club in Sainte-Julie, Que.

Belliveau, who is still a juvenile, for the third straight day posted a 76 card for a total of 228 strokes after 54 holes, or 11 strokes above par.

The Dieppe golfer recorded three eagles (5th, 7th, 16th), 10 pars, four bogueys (1st, 4th, 8th, 10th) and a triple boguey (13th) on Wednesday.

The other New Brunswicker still in the tournament is Daniel Kirby of the Covered Bridge Club in Woodstock. He netted a card of 77 and now has 231 hits, or 15 hits above par.

Note that Alex Smith, of Saint-Joseph, Nicholas Ritchie and Cole Pender, of Quispamsis, Jacob Hall, of Saint-Isidore, Ben Nicholson, of Fredericton, and Olivier Aucoin, of Moncton, were not able to avoid the cut after the second round.

Quebecer Jean-Philippe Parr leads the tournament with a cumulative score of -12. On Wednesday, Parr had an excellent round of 66.

He is closely followed by youngster Cooper Humphreys of British Columbia and Nova Scotian Owen Mullen, both at -11, one stroke behind the point guard. So it’s going to be interesting for the final round on Thursday.

In the youth category, Humphreys obviously leads the tournament, followed by Ontario’s Owen Kim at -1. Julien Belliveau occupies the 13th place.
