CALGARY, Canada (June 16, 2018) - Rising West Virginia junior Étienne Papineau concluded his week with the lone under-par round of the final day as he won the Glencoe Invitational by four shots.
Papineau closed with birdies on Nos. 16 and 18 to finish the week at Glencoe Golf & Country Club 1-over following rounds of 71-76-70. A native of Quebec, Canada and one of the top junior players in Canada in 2015, Papineau started slowly with a double-bogey on the 2nd but quickly righted the ship playing the rest of the round in 4-under. Papineau rolled in birdies on Nos. 7, 10, 12, 16 and 18 with just a lone bogey on the 13th.
Jared Nicolls (South Dakota State) put some late pressure on Papineau playing the back nine in a bogey-free 2-under 34 but ultimately settled for a 5-over second place showing while Calvin Ross (Texas State), junior golfer Jeevan Sihota and Scott Kerr (Simon Fraser) shared third at 6-over.
