Williams Lake golfer Derrick Walters, 16, beat out 27 other golfers to capture the Mini Masters Golf Tournament title and a green jacket in Prince George Sunday.

Derrick fired a score of 74 to win the jacket. For his efforts he also won a plaque and a new wedge.

Moore’s for Men will custom fit the green jacket, equipped with a crest on the jacket resembling a map of Canada with the Canadian flag coming out of Prince George.

The “Duffers” out of Prince George sponsored the tournament, while Kevin Bowman presented Derrick with his jacket and plaque following the win.

Derrick, along with fellow local golfers Ryan LaBossiere and Brett LaBossiere, also recently returned from the BC Summer Games in Surrey last month.

The trio are also entered to compete this weekend at the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club’s Central Interior Classic featuring golfers from around the province.
