SIMCOE - 

Langton golfer Peyton Callens tied for eighth at the 2017 Canadian Junior Boys Championship at the Cataraqui Golf and Country Club in Kingston.

The Holy Trinity student fired a 1-under 69 on Thursday to finish plus-2 overall.

Callens, 17, was just four shots back of the second spot while Calvin Ross of Fredericton was seven ahead of his nearest competitor, finishing in first with a mark of 9-under.

Callens – who tied for third at the event last year - is a member of Golf Canada's Development Squad and has committed to the NCAA's Texas A&M Aggies.

“I'm really pleased with my result and look forward to carrying the momentum into the Canadian Amateur next week,” Callens said in a text message to the Reformer.

The Canadian Men's Amateur Championship runs Aug. 7-10 at the Toronto Golf Club and Islington Golf Club.
