Delta’s Charlie Derrheim victorious as junior golf tour returns

Delta’s Charlie Derrheim won his division as the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour resumed play last weekend in Abbotsford.

Coming from a three-shot deficit after the first round at Ledgeview Golf and Country Club, Derrheim, 14, won the Bantam boys title by one shot over Jay Xu, 13, of Coquitlam.

Derrheim opened his second round with a bogey-free one-under par nine holes on his way to a 72 and a two-day total of 146.

After ceasing competition for three months, the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour restarted its season last weekend with revised procedures in place to maintain player health and safety.

The two-day event heralded a new look for Canada’s number-one played junior golf tour, which had players following strict health and safety protocols, with no gatherings.
