PROVINCIAL CHAMPION GIESBRECHT TAKES MJT-MANITOBA PGA JUNIOR CROWN

WINNIPEG, MB – The Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s annual MJT-Manitoba PGA Junior Championship presented by Bieber Securities successfully concluded at Transcona Golf Club in Winnipeg on July 24th, after two days of hot, sunny weather. The full field of competitive juniors came from Saskatchewan, Ontario and all over Manitoba, to compete for their respective division titles in the championship, which was sponsored by local financial services firm, Bieber Securities.

Fresh off his victory as the 2006 provincial Junior Boys Champion, Kevin Giesbrecht, 16, of Carman, MB, continued to show his stuff as the best player and fired 73-71 to edge Spencer Harris, 18, of Winnipeg (73-72) for the low overall score. Giesbrecht won the Boys 14-16 Champion's trophy in this, his first MJT event, as well as the low overall honours. “My driver was very solid – it feels good to get another win under my belt,” said Giesbrecht, who birdied the 16th hole both days. Second to Giesbrecht in this division was Steve Minion, 14, of Winnipeg, MB, who continued his great play in MJT events and fired 78-72 (150). Jeff Bassey, 15, also of Winnipeg, (81-70=151), rounded out the top three after shooting one-under-par on day two, the best round of the tournament.
