Team Ontario on Top after Second Round of the Ontario Junior Boys Championship

Sudbury, ON – A familiar face is positioned at the top of the leaderboard after round two of the 2022 Ontario Junior Boys Championship. Team Ontario member, Cameron Pero (Picton Golf & Country Club), sits comfortably in the number one spot after posting another 68 on day two. After 4 birdies on the front nine yesterday, Pero found more success on the back nine today, sinking birdie putts on 10, 15 and 18.

Tied in second are groupmates, Matthew Martel (Lookout Point Country Club Ltd) and Oscar Feschuk (Weston Golf & Country Club). Martel and Feschuk thrived off of each other’s ball-striking, both shooting 3-under (69) on the day and 4-under (140) overall.

Another Team Ontario member, Luke Smith (The Thornhill Club), also threw himself into contention on day two. Smith would finish 2-under on the day (70) and will join his Team Ontario teammate in the top 10, as he sits just 1-over (145) overall.

The top 60 golfers (plus ties) will tee off at 8:00 am tomorrow for round 3 of the Ontario Junior Boys Championship. For media coverage of the Ontario Junior Boys (U19) Championship, please visit the Golf Ontario Facebook page to view our photo albums.
