Young Orléans golfer continues to build on previous success

Isaiah Ibit is a young man on a mission. While completing Grade 12 at St. Peter High School and earning his high school diploma this spring, he showed why he’s been given a full ride golfing scholarship at Kent State University in Ohio by piling up a number of impressive results on the golf course.

Hot off a successful 2023 season during which he won the NextGen Ontario Championship and placed second at the Team Canada NextGen selection camp, Ibit placed eighth in the Dustin Johnson World Junior Tournament in Myrtle Beach playing against a stacked field that included some of the best junior golfers in North America.

In April, Ibit helped the Canadian junior team place second at the Toyota Junior World Cup North America Qualifier in Guatemala which earned the team a berth in the Toyota Junior World Cup which recently took place in Japan.

Ibit was the top Canadian in the field at the event, finishing in a tie for 11th place overall and helping Canada to a 7th place finish in the team competition.

After returning to Ottawa to complete his exams and attend his graduation ceremony, Ibit has been preparing for the North and South Junior Championship which is taking place at the Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina this week on the same course where the U.S. Open took place just three weeks ago.

This is Ibit’s last season competing as a junior. His goal is to win either the Ontario Junior Championship where he finished tied for fourth place last year and/or the Canadian Junior Championship where he placed tied for 22nd.

At some point this summer he’ll make the move to Kent State to start his career as a Division 1 university golfer and hopefully follow in the footsteps of Corey Connors and Mackenzie Hughes, who both went to Kent State before having successful careers on the PGA tour.
