Langley golfer tops at Pagoda Ridge

Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour makes a stop at Langley's Pagoda Ridge Golf Course

Langley’s Andy Jang tees off at the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s Lindsay Kenney Classic at Pagoda Ridge over the weekend.

Consecutive rounds of 74 helped power Chaewon Baek to a three-stroke victory in the Maple Leaf Junior Tour Lindsay Kenney Classic over the weekend at Pagoda Ridge Golf Course in Langley.

The 12-year-old from Langley was three strokes back after 18 holes but delivered a second straight 74 to win by three shots over Surrey’s Angel Lin to win the girls U15 division.

With the victory, Baek is now shortlisted for her age group for a spot in the IMG Academy junior world championships in San Diego this summer. The finalists will be announced once qualifying has been completed across the country.

Altogether, 94 junior golfers teed off in six different divisions over the two-day competition.

Andy Kim finished tied for third in the juvenile (15/16) boys division after shooting 70-75—145 to finish three strokes back of Surrey’s Samuel Su.

A handful of other Langley golfers cracked the top 10 in their age groups.

Andy Jang was fifth in juvenile boys, Jaxson Stobbe was sixth in junior boys (17-19) and Ye Ji Lim was tied for seventh in the girls 15-19 category.

Brock Hertz was 14th in juvenile boys.
