12-Year-Old Canadian Croatian Becomes 3-Time CJGA World Junior Challenge Champion


Peter Blazevic

12-year-old Canadian-Croatian Peter Blazevic has made it back-to-back-to-back title wins at the Canadian Junior Golf Association’s (CJGA) World Junior Challenge after winning the Boys 11-13 Division at Innisbrook resort in Palm Harbor Florida this week…

Blazevic, who hails from Burlington, Ontario in Canada, now has won three Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) World Junior Challenge golf events in a row. Peter, who won the event in 2013 and 2014, was this year playing in the 11-13 boys division.

The talent 12-year-old led after day 1 when he shot 71, and continued his lead into the final round where he would not relinquish the two-stroke lead he had. His final round of 74 (+3), left him 3-over for the tournament, a score good enough to win his third World Junior Challenge event in a row.

A big future in the game of golf awaits Blazevic and we wish him the best for the 2016 season.
