Jake Scarrow of Mission overcame a five-stroke deficit in just 10 holes to win the British Columbia Junior Boys’ Championship at the Park Meadows Course at the Osoyoos Golf Club in July.

The incoming University of Idaho freshman shot a final round (-3) 69 to finish at 13-under, beating second- and third-round leader Zaahidali (Ziggy) Nathu by two strokes.

“I don’t think this will hit me until later tonight or even tomorrow,” said Scarrow. “It’s so amazing. This is the biggest win of my career and I’m so happy right now.”

Scarrow also won the two-man Best Ball Competition with Harry Bains at (-32) 256, taking the title by three strokes over the team of Henry Lee and Daniel Sun, who finished at (-29) 259.

Scarrow, along with Nathu and the tournament’s third-place finisher Callum Davison will represent B.C. at the Canadian Junior Boys Championship at Summerlea Golf & Country Club in Vaudreuil-Dorion, Que., from Aug. 3 to 6.

The Mission golfer is currently competing with the CJGA Team Canada squad in the Euro Junior Golf Cup in St. Andrews, Scotland.
