KAMLOOPS, B.C. – The final round of the 2016 CN Future Links Pacific Championship at The Dunes at Kamloops Golf Club unfolded in much the same way as the previous two – with the Junior Boys and Junior Girls fields in pursuit of Tony Gil and Mary Parsons.
 
Neither would be caught as the pair completed wire-to-wire victories to open Golf Canada’s championship season.
 
For her part, Delta, B.C.'s Mary Parsons came out of the gate with a Dunes women's course record 66 and never looked back (that 66 was matched in the final round by Coquitlam's Euna Han).
 
Team Canada Men’s Development Squad member Tony Gil matched his opening-round 66 with another six-birdie performance. “I managed myself really well, strategically and mentally,” said the product of Vaughan, Ont. “Tee to green, I was really solid. I made a couple of long putts for birdie. Overall this week, my ball-striking was on point. I only made two bogeys which was quite nice. I’m pretty happy with how I played.”
