Ilirian Zalli and Akari Hayashi(Bryan Outram/British Columbia Golf) — It was a tale of two different days for the two winners in the 2016 British Columbia Golf Bantam Boys’ & Girls’ Championships held at picturesque and often demanding Bowen Island Golf Club.

First round leader in the Boys’ division, Vancouver’s Ilirian Zalli, was a little more conservative in round two on the heels of his course record-setting 63 as he settled for a 4-over 74 but it was still good enough for a three shot win over Markus Yiu, also from Vancouver.

According to the pro shop at Bowen Island GC, North Vancouver Professional Bryn Parry recorded a similar score in a Pro-Am not long ago, but nobody in Zalli’s age group has ever come close to that number on the 9-hole 6,006-yard par 70  layout.
