Updated: September 4, 2013

In what was termed a dream match-up between the medalist and the defending champion, Frank Garber outlasted Kevin Vigna in the Final match to win the 59th Pacific Northwest Junior Boys’ Amateur Championship. Garber won the last hole in the 36-hole match, two-putted for birdie to defeat Vigna, 1-up.

Frank Garber was the winner of the 59th Pacific Northwest Junior Boys’ Amateur.

The championship, conducted by the Pacific Northwest Golf Association (PNGA), was contested on the Valley course at the Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa in Victoria, B.C.

Garber, of Kirkland, Wash., had easily won medalist honors in the championship’s two rounds of stroke-play qualifying earlier in the week, shooting a combined score of 5-under par, four strokes clear of the second-place finisher, to set himself up as the No. 1 seed entering the match play bracket.
