Glenboro’s Zach Wytinck shot a 77 in the final round of the provincial junior men’s golf championship at the Rossmere Country Club and finished atop the 15- to 16-year-old age group with a four-round total of 303.
That was good enough to put Wytinck, who will compete in the men’s amateur next week, seventh overall on the leaderboard, three spots behind Dauphin’s Connor Shaw.
Shaw posted a 74 on Thursday to finish fourth overall at 300. Although it wasn’t good enough to make the provincial team that will play in the national championship in Ontario from July 29 to Aug. 1, it did secure him a spot there to compete as an individual.
Selkirk’s Travis Fredborg ran away with the title with a four-round total of 289 for an eight-stroke victory. Brandon’s Austin Dobrescu finished 19th at 317.
Meanwhile, in the junior women’s event, Erickson’s Bobbi Uhl carded an 88 in her final round to finish the 54-hole event in eighth place at 266. She won the 13- to 14-year-old age group by default.
Veronica Vetesnik of Winnipeg was first with a 246.
