Whistler golfer Stewart Walker adds three wins to his record

Stewart Walker has been productive as of late. 

A familiar sight at Sea to Sky golf clubs like Nicklaus North, Walker played his way to a trio of spring wins on the junior circuit: April 30 at Beach Grove Golf Club, May 6 at Quilchena Golf & Country Club, and May 7 at Richmond Country Club.

Walker's lowest score of the season so far was a 67 at Quilchena, which put him at 6-under. He was one of only two golfers to finish under par that day, the other being runner-up Eric Stinson with a 70. Afterwards, Walker dedicated his victory to his late grandfather, Richard, who passed away earlier this spring.

The Whistler native tied for first with a 70 at Beach Grove, equalling Ian Pashkewych in that regard. His 69 in Richmond put him three shots clear of William Wei and Will Queree, both of whom finished at an even-par 72. 

Walker opened his season on April 1 by tying for second at the Capilano Junior Invitational, where he found himself deadlocked with Manu Gandhi and Lee Hyunjun at 70 apiece. He's faced more difficulty at recent tournaments, tying for 16th at Marine Drive and 20th at Point Grey this month.

The Whistlerite is heading to New York this fall to play NCAA Division I golf with Long Island University. His full results are available online.
