Regularly on the provincial scene, Anthony Jomphe, of the Chicoutimi Golf Club, dominated the first regional golf competition with a round of 77 on the course of the Domaine Lac-Saint-Jean club in Saint-Prime.
The winner of the day and of the juvenile class (15-16 years) did not, however, present the best card of the day, because it was made by his compatriot Chicoutimian Théo Provencher, who played 73 to win the bantam division. The youngest start the holes on more advanced milestones. Provencher outstripped local golfer Robin Benoit, who returned a score of 77, a stroke better than Mathias Bouchard of Club Lac-Saint-Jean. To return to the juvenile, Anthony Jomphe finished ahead of Matthew Dufour, also of Chicoutimi.
Among the oldest, in the junior, Club Lac-Saint-Jean scored twice with the winner William Bouchard, 80, followed by Eliot Fortin with five more shots.
Among the youngest, in pee-wee, Raphaël Brassard achieved the best score with 93, followed by Hayden Jordan, from Chibougamau with 97.
On the female side, Sarah-Maude Lefebvre of the local club dominated with a round of 80, finishing ahead of Andréanne Gauthier of Chibougamau.
This first tournament, which brought together forty young golfers, did not count in the classification of qualifications for the Provincial Championships. The next three yes, starting with Chicoutimi Monday, La Baie two days later and Lac-Saint-Jean on July 20. The president of the regional section, Louis Aubin, therefore expects greater participation, particularly among girls. He was still very satisfied with this first competition which took place with some measures of distancing.
For the Provincial Championships, those of pee-wee and bantam will take place in Drummondville on August 10 and 11. In the juvenile and junior competitions will be held on August 22 and 23 in Bromont for boys and from August 1 to 3 in Lachute for girls.
