Corrin carded a 76 Wednesday at the Nipawin Evergreen Golf and Country Club to follow his 74 from Tuesday. He shot an opening-round 81 on Monday and finished 15-over for the three-day tournament.
He got off to a fast start Wednesday as he was even after nine holes and birdied No. 4.
He birdied No. 4 Monday as well but surrounded that with five bogeys and a double-bogey on the front nine. He had a solid back nine, but was 25th after the opening day.
He moved up the leaderboard to 14th after the second round and moved up again in the final round.
Shaunavon's Corey Bailey shot a one-under to finish three-under for the tournament to claim the title. He was seven shots better than Roman Timmerman from the Saskatoon WIldwood who shot a three-under Wednesday but wasn't able to make up much ground.
Kayla Sawchuk from Prince Albert had no problem winning the Junior Women's title. She finished 11 strokes ahead of Brooke Hill from the Royal Regina.
