West Vancouver’s Jennifer Gu has earned a spot on Canada’s national junior golf team for the 2021 season.

The Seymour Golf and Country Club member was one of 14 athletes – seven girls and seven boys – named to the squad, representing the top U19 golfers in the country. The team was chosen following a selection camp held at Bear Mountain Resort in Victoria in September, an event which included a series of testing modules as well as a 54-hole competition.

Gu won the 2020 PGA of BC Junior Championship and also earned top-10 finishes at this year’s B.C. Amateur Championship, the B.C. Junior Girls Championship and the 2020 Alberta Junior Girls Championship. In 2018 Gu won the Future Links Fall Series (West).

The members of the junior national team will train together with professional coaches and support staff from March until June at Golf Canada’s National Training Centre at Bear Mountain.
