Shell Lake’s Brooklin Fry won the Saskatchewan Junior Golf Title in a dominant performance at the Moon Lake Golf and Country Club, finishing the third and final day of competition 11 strokes up on her next-closest competitor.

The 13-year-old shot her third-straight round of 83 to secure the provincial title with a three-day total of 249.

“I just had to make sure I was playing my best because we don’t play with everybody, so you don’t know what they shoot,” she was quoted as saying in a press release.

“I just tried my best to get to the top.

Fry will lead Saskatchewan into the National Championships, which will be held from July 31 to Aug. 3 in B.C.
