Junior golf tour has shortened stop in Pitt Meadows

Heavy rain on Saturday caused the opening round of the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s Ford Series at Swan-e-set Bay Resort in Pitt Meadows

Heavy rain on Saturday caused the opening round of the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s Ford Series at Swan-e-set Bay Resort in Pitt Meadows, to be shortened to nine holes.

However great weather on Sunday allowed for a fine finish with players qualifying for high-level tournaments and three coming close to winning a 2016 Ford Focus SE in a hole-in-one contest.

There were several local competitors.

Amy Ehlert finished fifth in the U-15 girls class after shooting 51, 83, 134. She also sits fifth overall in the order of merit.

Sienna Kraus tied for seventh in girls 15-19 age class with 47, 87, 134

Kyle Henrikson, 17, was fifth in junior boys with scores of 44, 87, 131, and also sits fifth on the order of merit.

Andy Jang, 15, of Langley and with Braeden Cooper, 15 of Vernon, won paid entries into the Vancouver Golf Tour’s MTC Open at Burnaby Golf Club on June 11, after Jang won low overall and the MJT juvenile boys division title by one stroke 38, 75, 113.

The non-profit Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour is Canada’s number-one played Junior Golf Tour. It hosts more than 60 events across Canada, including free Ford Go Golf Junior Clinics and the MJT Mini Tour for 7-12 year olds.
