Junior Boys' Championship Timberwolf Golf Club

Pero Maintains Lead at Ontario Junior Boys Championship

Sudbury, ON – The back nine at Timberwolf Golf Course was the story of round three at the Ontario Junior Boys Championship. Many golfers this week have stumbled through holes 15, 16, and 17, impacting their finish to the rounds. However, the two golfers at the top of our leaderboard proved that difficulty doesn’t always deteriorate success.

Playing alongside each other today, Cameron Pero (Picton Golf & Country Club) and Oscar Feschuk (Weston Golf & Country Club) started the day 1-under through the front nine. On the back nine, Feschuk would go on to birdie the first three holes and top it off with an eagle on 18, ending the day at 5-under (67). Feschuk jumps to second place with a strong day today, shooting 9-under for the tournament (207). Pero’s putter, however, would also get hot, as he would sink three birdies on his last three holes to end his day. The Team Ontario member put up his third 68 in three days, maintaining a comfortable three-stroke lead going into the final round.

Also, a member of the leader group, Matthew Martel (Lookout Point Country Club Ltd), had quite a day of his own. Martel finished his day 3-under (69) and sits five strokes back from Pero’s lead.

Tee-offs for the final round will begin at 8:00 am tomorrow (Friday), off holes 1 and 10. For media coverage of the Ontario Junior Boys (U19) Championship, please visit the Golf Ontario Facebook page to view our photo albums. To follow along with the leaderboard, visit our Golf Genius page
