An up-and-coming Nanaimo golfer won a major for her level. Shirin Anjarwalla won the B.C. Golf juvenile girls’ championship Thursday at Royalwood Golf Course in Chilliwack.

She shot a one-under par 72 on her third and final round. The 14-year-old made 15 birdies at the tourney and ended up with scores of 68-67-72.

“I played really good; I think my first two rounds were the best I’ve ever played so I was really proud of myself,” said Anjarwalla in a B.C. Golf press release.

When Team Canada member Naomi Ko began to close in, Anjarwalla changed her approach.

“I was just thinking ‘OK, don’t try to play so aggressive, just try to make your pars. If birdies fall then they’ll fall, but don’t play just for birdies.’ I was just trying to stay to my game plan and keep steady,” she said.
