If 17-year-old Michelle Kim needs any inspiration for winning the Flumerfelt Cup at the British Columbia Women’s Amateur at Duncan Meadows, she need look no further than her older sister Taylor, the 2014 champion.
 
Michelle, a Team Canada Development Team member, shot the low round of the day at the British Columbia Golf Amateur and Mid-Amateur at Duncan Meadows Golf Course Tuesday, as her even-par 72 has her one stroke ahead of a quartet of young golfers: Team Canada Development Team member Alisha Lau of Quilchena Golf & Country Club, Hannah Lee and Gloria Choi of Fraser Valley Zone 3, and Mary Parsons of Mayfair Lakes Golf Club.

Barr won at Tumwater Valley Golf Club and that is the victory prominently listed as his first international title on his Golf Canada Hall of Fame record.
