MJT-Alberta Series at Carstairs GC

Allard and Tomalty Share Low Overall on MJT at Carstairs

CARSTAIRS, AB – Great golfing weather greeted juniors in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s stop at Carstairs Golf Club in Carstairs, AB, on July 23rd and 24th. Temperatures soared to 38 degrees Celcius on Monday, steadied at 26 degrees on Tuesday, and the course was in excellent condition.

Michael Tomalty, 18, of Calgary, knew that the 10 footer he faced on the 18th hole was important, so he bared down and hit it solidly in the middle to win the Boys 17 and up division by two shots. Tomalty fired back-to-back rounds of 72 for an even par 144 total for the tournament. Scott MacDonald, 18, of Calgary (76-70) and Nathan Liewicki, 19, of Edmonton (72-74) tied for second place in the division at 146 total score.

In the Boys 14-16 division, Eric Allard, 16, of Calgary played well coming down the stretch, holding off first round leader Matt Whittaker, 15, of Lethbridge, by one shot. Whittaker birdied the 17th hole to tie the match, but three-putted the 18th hole from 25 feet, while Allard got it up and down from over the back of the green to secure the division title. “I didn’t miss any short putts,” said Allard, who shot 72-72 (144) to share low overall honours with Tomalty in the older division. “I just told myself to keep making pars, don’t give Matt a chance.” Whittaker shot 71-74 (145). Chris Cooke, 16, of Canmore, in his words, “just couldn’t get it going” and finished in third place (72-76=148).
