Sudbury, ON – Oscar Feschuk (Weston Golf & Country Club Ltd.) rightfully wins the 2022 Ontario Junior Boys Championship after shooting 3-under (69) in the final round from Timberwolf Golf Club. Feschuk began the day three strokes back from his groupmate Cameron Pero (Picton Golf & Country Club). However, Feschuk quickly addressed the three-stroke deficit, as he would sink two birdie putts on the first two holes. Feschuk would gain even more momentum after another birdie on the 9th, giving him a single-stroke lead over Pero heading onto the back nine. Feschuk would continue to build off this momentum for the rest of the round, gaining four more strokes and securing his first tournament win.
In addition, another notable player in today’s round is Bronze Medal winner Matthew Javier (Scarboro Golf & Country Club). Javier finished today’s round 3-under (69) and continues his hot streak with his second, third-place finish in two championship tournaments.
Pero, a Team Ontario member, had a fantastic tournament and put up three consecutive 68’s in rounds one, two and three. This week, he was a delight to watch and couldn’t have been more supportive of his friend Oscar as he received his championship trophy.
