KOO CAPS OFF SUCCESSFUL SEASON AT MJT CANACCORD CAPITAL CITY SERIES

Vancouver, BC – Fraserview Golf Club in Vancouver hosted the final tournament in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s Canaccord Capital City Series, capping off a successful run of three events for junior golfers.

MJT National Tour Champion for Boys 14-16, John Koo, 16, of Langley, BC, played a consistent game to shoot 73 and win low overall score as well as his age division title. Koo, who edged Dong Su, 16, of Richmond, BC, by one stroke, said, “When I first went out, I thought Dong was going to win. I shot one-under on the back and gained momentum. On 18, I chose to lay-up, which was smart because Dong ended up making bogey there. I’m happy about that decision.” Su placed second with a 74, followed by James Park, 14, of Vancouver, BC, who took third place in the division with a score of 76.

The Boys 17 and up division was scooped by first-time MJT winner, Ryan Schnell, 21, of Vancouver. Schnell managed to close one stroke better than four competitors, shooting a 76 to their 77s. “I was resilient after missing two one-foot putts,” said Schnell. “My driving was pretty good. I kept (the ball) in play and was hitting it 300 (yards).” The four-way tie for second place in the division went to three players from Surrey, BC - Aaron Hale, 21, Ryan Stannard, 19, and Jordan Price, 17, and Vancouver’s Jerron Sarai, 17.
