Josh Wytinck ended his university golf career with the University of Manitoba Bisons on top.

The 22-year-old Glenboro native captained the Bisons to the Canadian university and college championship on Friday at the Southwood Golf and Country Club in Winnipeg. The team combined to shoot 4 over par during the last day of the four-round event for a total score of 5 over par. That was good enough to win the school’s first banner, with UBC finishing second at 17 over par, and gave Wytinck the dream end to his university career.

"It definitely means a lot after all the success we’ve had with the program," he said. "For me, the past two or three years to have won 12 other titles and this was the only one missing. To get it in my last crack at it was huge."

Wytinck found some success in the individual part of the competition as well. He closed out the event with a 2-over-par 74 to finish in fourth place at 1 over, his best-ever placing at nationals. It was also good enough to land him on the championship all-Canadian team, which is made up of the five players with the lowest scores.

Wytinck finished one shot behind Connor Gann and Russell Bowie, who tied for second at even par, while UBC’s Scott Secord ran away from the field, finishing the 54 holes at 7 under par. Wytinck was satisfied with his play individually, but he admitted that wasn’t his focus coming into the event.

"I feel like I left quite a few shots out there. I thought I hit it pretty well, but at the end of the day, the team event is all I was worried about and to get that done doesn’t make me dwell on being fourth," he said. "I could have done better, sure, but winning the team event is the real goal.

"(Being an all-Canadian) was another honour. It just puts a cherry on top of the win."

Wytinck, who has one more year of classes but won’t return to the golf team next season, doesn’t have a lot of time to celebrate. He’ll be on the Bel Acres course this afternoon for the first round of the Golf Manitoba match play championship.
