ONTARIO JUNIOR GOLFER SCORES ON MJT WITH $10 MILLION FIRE AT THE FLAGTM


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - November 6, 2007
ONTARIO JUNIOR GOLFER SCORES ON MJT WITH $10 MILLION FIRE AT THE FLAGTM
Vancouver, CANADA: A junior golfer on the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT), Canada's only national junior tour run exclusively by Golf Professionals, is set to have a chance at winning $10 million after being randomly selected in a draw.
Andrew Natividad, 16, of Woodbridge, ON, was drawn as the overall winner of a trip to Florida, USA, where he will participate in the Grand Prize Shootout of Fire At The FlagTM. A division of GPS Industries, Inc., the golf industry's leading provider of WiFi-enabled GPS management systems, Fire At The FlagTM is the world's richest hole-in-one program.
GPS Industries has sponsored the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour throughout the 2007, providing a $1,000 prize to any participant who scores a hole-in-one at a Fire At The FlagTM hole in a MJT event. Three players - two from Manitoba and one from Alberta - managed to scoop this bonus last season.
At the end of the season all MJT members across the country were entered into a draw to win a fabulous prize package that includes a trip for two to Naples, Florida this December, to meet legendary golfer Greg Norman during the week of the Merrill-Lynch Shootout. Just prior to the PGA Tour-sanctioned event Navtividad, together with Greg Norman, will take a shot at the Grand Prize Jackpot of $10 million.
Fire At The FlagTM is a turnkey program being adopted by courses around the world looking to increase the excitement of daily fee play and distinguish their golf experience. "World-wide, there are already more than 100 courses offering Fire At The Flag," said Robert Silzer, Jr., Director of the GPS Industries program. "The response from golfers is overwhelming so we very quickly generate measurable bottom-line revenue for golf course operators."
Murray Poje, Executive Director of the Maple Leaf Junior Tour, said, "Andrew (Natividad) must be very excited about this great opportunity. The generous Fire At The Flag prizes from GPS Industries certainly go down well with the junior golfers, and we would welcome continued support from GPS Industries in 2008, the Tour's 10th season."
