MJT G&G Golf Classic at Meadow Gardens GC / Mexico Qualifier

Lock and Kim Join Maple Leaf Team Canada to Mexico

PITT MEADOWS, B.C. – The Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) held the MJT G&G Golf Classic at Meadow Gardens Golf Club in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, this past weekend, a qualifier for Maple Leaf Team Canada to Mexico.

The tournament, sponsored by G&G Golf Company, was to qualify one boy and one girl for the Canadian contingent in the 5th International Junior Golf Invitational in Cuernavaca, August 14-18, 2006. The rest of the eight-player squad for 2006 are being selected from other qualifiers across the country.

Mitchell Lock, 17, of Mission and a Mission Golf Club junior, went birdie, par, eagle on his last three holes to shoot 74-72 (146) and win low overall tournament score and the Boys 17 & up division title, securing his spot on the team in style. Coming down the 18th hole on Sunday, Lock was two strokes off the lead when he hit his three wood 240 yards into the wind to reach the green in two, sticking it to two-and-a-half feet of the pin where he then made the birdie putt to win by two. “I never gave up and kept fighting ‘til the end,” said Lock, who played on Maple Leaf Team Canada in Cuernavaca last year as well, and will now return to defend their champion’s title over Mexico and the United States. “It means so much to me to win today because it’s my first win on tour.”
