Palmer, Dagg, represent Alberni Golf Course at BC Junior Boys championship

Greg Palmer of Alberni Golf Course is tied for 15th place after two rounds of the BC Junior Boys' Golf Championships at the Birchbank Golf Club in Trail.

Greg Palmer of Alberni Golf Course is tied for 15th place after two rounds of the BC Junior Boys’ Golf Championships at the Birchbank Golf Club in Trail.

Palmer shot a one-under-par 71 on Wednesday for a two day total of 147 (three over par).

Palmer spent last week caddying for another Port Alberni golfer, Christina Proteau, who won the BC Women’s Mid-Amateur and Amateur titles.

Another Port Alberni golfer, Jeff Dagg, is in 45th at the BC Junior Championships with a two-round total of 77-75-152 (eight over par).

Defending Champion Adam Svensson, of Surrey, fired a second round 4-under-par 68 to grab the solo lead at the BC Junior Boys’ Championship at Birchbank Golf Club in Trail, BC.

Svensson, 17, counteracted three bogeys with five birdies and an eagle to shoot the low round of the day and sit at 9-under-par 135 for the tournament.

“I know the score doesn’t show it but I wasn’t playing very well today,” said Svensson, a member of the National Development team.  “I was snap hooking it a lot and my putting wasn’t there again but I managed to hold it together.  Today showed me that I can still score low on this golf course even if I’m hitting it bad so I’m feeling confident.”

Moving into second place is first round co-leader Kevin Kwon, of Pitt Meadows, who sits four back at 5-under-par 139.  Kwon began the day with a birdie before carding two double bogeys on the front nine.  He managed to rebound with four birdies on the back before finishing up the day with a bogey for a round of even-par 72.

In a tie for third place is Curtis Chan, of Richmond, and Khaled Attieh, of Delta, at 2-under-par 142, and in fifth place is Cameron Davison, of Duncan, at even-par 144.

Following second-round play the Zone Team Championship was awarded to Adam Svensson, Donald Qiu, Chris Crisologo and Josh Zhang of Zone 4 (Greater Vancouver) at 4-under-par 428 and the Club Team Championship was won by Kevin Kwon and Oscar Baek of Swan-e-set Bay Resort at 4-under-par 284.

The third round will tee-off beginning at 8:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, July 7.Starting times, post-round results and a full field list for the BC Junior Boys’ Championship are available online at www.bcga.org.
