MJT Alberta Series at Lacombe GC / MJT Team Canada (Scotland & Mexico) Qualifier

May 19-21, 2007
Lacombe, AB

Three Players Repeat as Winners of Spots on MJT Team Canada in Three Day Event
Tournament at Lacombe honours memory of Brandt Levers


LACOMBE, AB – Drenching rain accompanied by dreadful wind dominated the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s (MJT) three-day tournament at Lacombe Golf and Country Club in Lacombe, Alberta, this past May long weekend. Never really given a chance to showcase their talents, the players just tried to survive the bitterly cold and wet conditions and make it through.

The tournament paid tribute to the memory of Brandt Levers, 18, of Breton, AB, who died in a recent car accident. Levers played on the MJT for five years and won a number of times, including twice at Lacombe. He was remembered by family and golfing colleagues at the event, which was a double qualifier for spots on MJT Team Canada to the Scotland Kingdom of Fife Junior Team Matches in the U.K., and on MJT Team Canada to the International Junior Golf Invitational (IJGI) in Cuernavaca, Mexico, both scheduled for August 2007.

Andrew Funk, 18, of Edmonton, AB, repeated as a winner of a spot on MJT Team Canada after playing three solid rounds of 71-74-75 (220), steadily wearing down his competitors over 54 very difficult holes and securing victory in the Boys 17 and up division. “It means a lot to win – three decent rounds in questionable weather feels nice,” said Funk, who fired four birdies in a row during round one. “The two and three day tournaments on the MJT help me to be consistent and the great fields make you work hard. I would love to win the Alberta Junior and perform better at the Canadian Junior.”
