Just 15 years old, Duncan golfer Callum Davison is giving older competitors a run for their money this summer.

Davison finished third at the BC Junior Championships for golfers under 18 at the Osoyoos Golf Club’s Park Meadows course on July 7-10. He shot 74-68-64-72 to finish at 278, just three strokes back of Dewdney’s Jake Scarrow. Davison has now qualified for the Canadian Junior Championships in Montreal this week.

Mill Bay’s Tristan Mandur was 11th overall, shooting 75-68-71-73 to finish at 287. Another Duncan golfer, Callan Rakimov, finished tied for 53rd in the field of 156 entrants. Mandur is based out of Arbutus Ridge, while Rakimov golfs out of the Cowichan Golf and Country Club.

Davison also finished tied for 28th at the BC Amateur Championships in Oliver in a field open to any age. Dallas Jones of Ladysmith and Mount Brenton finished tied for 17th in Oliver, shooting 69-72-78-76 for a total of 295, 17 strokes back of the winner. Davison was 21 strokes back and Colin Langley of Chemainus and Mount Brenton tied for 69th.

Callum’s older brother Cam Davison missed the cut by one stroke, shooting 78-74 over the first two rounds.
