Brenan Moroney sank a two-inch birdie putt on the second playoff hole to capture the first event on the West Kootenay Junior Golf circuit Saturday at the Balfour Golf Course.
Moroney’s approach shot into the green came ever so close to going into the hole making it easy for the Rossland/Trail golfer to defeat teammate Tyler McKay.
McKay missed a seven-foot birdie putt that would have extended the match.
Both players shot identical rounds of 81 at the par 72, 6,500-yard Balfour Golf Course.
