Peyton Callens has had a very consistent summer on the links, and that paid off for him this week at the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship at Windsor, Ontario’s Ambassador Golf Club.
The Langton golfer shot two rounds of 68 to start the four-day event, before going 65 and 72 to finish in a tie for ninth place with a 273.
Callens, who golfs for the University of Nevada Wolf Pack, was only six shots back of champion Max Sekulic.
Throughout the summer, Callens, who makes Otter Creek Golf Club his home course, has kept himself busy with qualifiers and the Toronto Players Tour. In July, Callens led after Day 1 of the Full Wedge Golf Muskoka Championship, and finished seventh.
Next week Callens is back at it. This time he will compete for the Ontario Amateur Golf Championship at Beach Grove Golf & Country Club, in Windsor.
