Pee-Wee and Bantam Classic - Get the complete results

Sainte-Marie, June 12, 2022 – Thanks to an incredible performance on Sunday, Zack Bourgeois (Blainvillier) was able to win the Pee-Wee and Bantam Classic which was back after a two-year pause due to the pandemic.

In the Pee-Wee category, Bourgeois made a hole-in-one on the 15th hole at the Club de Golf Sainte-Marie. This led him to force a sudden-death playoff as he tied with Noah Moreau (Lotbinière) at +23 at the end of the 18 holes.

"I still played well in the first round and made some good shots. I had a lot of fun and that's what's important. It was my first playoff. It's more stressful than anything else on the course, but I enjoyed it," said Zack Bourgeois after his victory.

Victor Albuquerque (Royal Québec) finished in third place with a score of +34.

A playoff was also necessary in the girls' bantam category as Charlotte Boudreau (Île de Montréal) and Mia Poirier (Victoriaville) were neck and neck at +24 after 18 holes. Boudreau's experience finally paid off, as this was her third sudden-death playoff appearance.

"It went really well today (Sunday), compared to yesterday which was more difficult. I don't know what changed between the two days. It didn't go the way I wanted it to in the playoff, I missed a lot of shots, but I'm glad I was able to win anyway," she said.

Very eloquent after her victory, Charlotte Boudreau said she was extremely proud to finally be successful in a major tournament.

"Most of my shots were very good today. I usually play well when I'm playing for fun, but when I get to a tournament, I don't always play as well. So, it was a great day for me today, and I’m happy with the way I played!”

Big Goals for the Rest of the Summer for Guo and Pinel

In the girls' pee-wee category, the victory went to Kate Guo (Knowlton) who delivered an excellent card of +24, well ahead of her closest opponents Mylee Murillo Beaudoin (+42, Blainvillier) and Laurianne Payer (+50, Blainvillier).

"I wasn't playing very well on my first nine, but I knew I could get back on track today and I managed to make +7. I knew the course better and that helped me a lot. My coach told me to focus on the moment and that's what helped me win," Guo said.

After winning a tournament in the Eastern Townships last year and with her victory of the day in Sainte-Marie, Kate Guo is looking to build on her success, first by improving her scores, as she aims to record two rounds under 85 in a single weekend.

Charly Pinel (Royal Québec) won the boys' bantam category in a heated battle against Chase Jerome (Royal Ottawa) and Oscar Ricketts (Beaconsfield). One-Stroke behind Chase Jerome after Saturday's round, Pinel worked his way up the leaderboard to win with a score of +7.

"I'm very happy that I didn't give up after a more difficult day on Saturday. I'm happy to be back in the game. I can't be mad at myself. After all, I won. But I know that I still have work to do," Pinel said.

Charly Pinel will not be satisfied with this victory as he is already looking to qualify for the Canadian Championships, as well as having a tournament in Drummondville in his sights. Earlier this season, Pinel was also crowned in the bantam division at the Assante Optimist Classic.

Golf Québec's activities will continue throughout the month of June with the presentation, until June 29, of several qualifying rounds for the Québec Games as well as the Provincial Mid-Amateur Championship to be held at the Club de golf des Bois-Franc from June 14 to 16.
