Eugene Wong wins Vancouver Open
Eugene Wong won his second tournament in as many weeks on Sunday after another shocking turn of events on the final hole.
The 21-year-old from North Vancouver, B.C., shot nine-under-par 63 at the Vancouver Open to finish the 54-hole tournament at 13 under, one shot ahead of Scott Stiles of Calgary.
Wong, a former amateur standout who turned pro this year, notched a birdie on the final hole at Fraserview Golf Course. Stiles, playing in the final group, after Wong, made a double bogey.
Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, B.C., and second-round co-leader Cory Renfrew shared third place at nine under.
All four golfers play regularly on the Canadian Tour, but with a gap in the circuit's schedule they entered the Vancouver Open, the biggest event on the Vancouver Golf Tour's calendar. The tournament is played on three municipal courses.
Wong pocketed $10,000 Sunday to go with the $16,000 he collected Aug. 26 at the Canadian Tour Championship in Toronto. He earned his first pro victory by holing out his approach shot for eagle on the 72nd hole.
