On the first playoff hole, Mackenzie, 16, beat 14-year-old Mazur for the spot to China. Mackenzie drove the 289 yard par four hole and two-putted for a birdie and victory over Mazur, who had an eight-footer for birdie slip by. “I maintained a strong mental game throughout both rounds,” said MacKenzie, when asked what was key to his win. “Making a 30 foot eagle putt on the 17th hole during the tournament was key, as when I made a birdie on the first playoff hole and my opponent missed his attempt at three.” Burke Wiebe, 16, also of Winnipeg, finished three strokes back of the division leaders in third place with scores of 75-71 (146).
