Peterborough, ON –Ontario’s top golfers ruled the greens this past weekend as Isaiah Ibit (Camelot Golf and Country Club) and Alissa Xu (Station Creek Golf Club) won their respective divisional Ontario NextGen Championships at Peterborough Golf and Country Club. The NextGen Championships are run through Golf Canada to attract and highlight the most talented junior golfers across the country.
Ibit, a Team Ontario member, finished the tournament 6-under par, three strokes ahead of Anthony Jomphe of Chicoutimi, Quebec in the Junior Boys Division. He shot 71-par in the first round, 66 in the second and 70 in the third and final. His victory at this tournament comes less than a week after winning the Junior (U19) Boys Spring Classic at Wooden Sticks Golf Club in Uxbridge. He finished 8-under par in that tournament.
Ibit is joined in the winner’s circle by a Team Ontario alumnus as Alissa Xu finished 2-over par in the Junior Girls Division, one stroke ahead of another Team Ontario member, Aryn Matthews (Bigwin Island Golf Club). After shooting 70 in rounds one and two, Xu would finish at 75-par in the final round.
