Commercial Albury Golf Club member Sam Bakes has fired a tournament-equalling best score of 67 to finish second in the prestigious Victorian Junior Amateur at The National Golf Club.
The year 10 student shot a blistering five-under par 67 to finish even par (288) after the four-round tournament.
Emerald Lakes Kai Komulainen won the event on two-under.
Bakes' effort is even more meritorious given many of the players in the top 20 scored in the 70s or even 80s in the last round.
The 15-year-old had made it difficult for himself in shooting 75 and 76 on the first two days.
"I just played poorly and made a few sloppy errors, which led to a few double bogeys," he admitted.
European Tour member Zach Murray has been giving Bakes some tips.

Yarrawonga's Baxter Droop finished tied for eighth.
