A pair of local golfers were among the leaders in a field of more than 70 who took part in the Maple Leaf Junior Tour event at Swan-e-Set Bay Resort in Pitt Meadows over the weekend.

In the girls division, 13-year old Tiffany Kong shot 78-74 (152) to win by four strokes over second-place finishers Annie Songeun Lee, 18, of Surrey (80-76-156) and Cecile Kwon, 14, of Maple Ridge, (76-80-156).

“Cecile and Annie are great competitors and golfers – it was a very close competition.” said Kong. “This is my first MJT win and I feel very proud of myself.”
