This summer has turned out to be one of championships for Crystal Zamzow and now, her trophy case just continues to fill up.
Earlier this summer, the Swan River native took home the Manitoba junior championships at the Selkirk Golf and Country Club. She finished that event with three straight pars to claim her first provincial title on the golf course against the provinces best.
After that event, Zamzow said she was looking forward to spending the summer with her family and friends. She knew she could play in some more tournament golf on the Maple Leaf Junior Tour and she decided to do just that at the St. Boniface Golf Club.
Playing in the U15 Girls age group, the Swan River junior opened the two-day event with a 90 as she took a six-shot lead into the final round. Inconsistent greens and playing to winter rules, the course played as a challenge for every golfer, but Zamzow was able to fend off that challenge on day two.
She improved by four strokes over day one for a two-day total of 176. That total won her the championship by 19 strokes, the largest margin of victory in any group.
In other action, Neepawa's Hayden Delaloye had the clubhouse lead after the first round in the bantam boy’s event. However, he would end up finishing in third place. Thomas Scott finished in a tie for fourth in the juvenile boy's group while Eric Prokopowich settled for sixth in the junior boy's age group.
