South Surrey's Adam Svensson successfully defended his B.C. Junior Boys golf title Friday, winning his second straight championship.

Svensson, 17, shot a four-round total score of 274, which put him 14-under-par at the Birchbank Golf Club in Trail. Svensson shot a final-round four-under-par 68 to seal the victory.

"I really feel great about this win," said Svensson. "I've been struggling on the greens lately but I putted a lot better today and I'm happy I was able to turn that around."

Pitt Meadows' Kevin Kwon placed second, seven strokes back of Svensson.

Next up for Svensson is the Calloway Junior World Championships at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, Calif., where he is also the defending champion.
