Tristan Mandur's presence automatically made the Shawnigan Lake School golf team a contender in the provincial high school championships.

Mandur did his part, shooting back-to-back rounds of 69 in the two-day competition at Qualicum Beach's Pheasant Glen Golf Course to lead Shawnigan to fourth place.

"In 160 rounds of golf, there were only four rounds shot under par and he had two of them,'' Shawnigan team spokesman David Hyde-Lay said of Mandur.

Mandur was the medalist for the tournament, with the individual low score.

Overall, "we shot as well as we possibly could,'' said Hyde-Lay.

A 312 total both days for the team "is about 15 shots better than we've done during the year in other tournaments,'' he added.

Captain Kevin Wang drew praise from Hyde-Lay for stepping up his game and helping set a tone for his teammates.

As for Mandur, "the guy's a special talent,'' said Hyde-Lay.

Host Kwalikum won the tournament, as expected, with a low 298 the first day and 303 the second.
