South Surrey golfer Adam Svensson's summer ended on a high note earlier this month, with a sixth place finish at the Vancouver Open Pro-Am.

Svensson, who just started his Grade 12 year at Earl Marriott Secondary, was the top amateur at the event after posting a three-round score of 208 (72-66-70) at three Vancouver public golf courses – McLeary, Langara and Fraserview.

Svensson, who earlier this summer won the B.C. Junior Boys golf title for the second consecutive year, was not the only golfer with local ties to excel in the tournament. Morgan Creek Golf Course's Adam Hadwin – an Abbotsford native who has spent time on the PGA Tour this summer – won the event over Brad Clapp in a one-hole playoff.
