MJT Canaccord Capital Classic at Northview G&CC

5-UNDER-PAR FROM LEE CAPS OFF MJT SEASON AT CANACCORD CAPITAL CLASSIC

Cloverdale, BC – The MJT Canaccord Capital Classic was held Sunday October 14th at Northview Golf Club in Cloverdale, the final tournament in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s 2007 season, where a full field of junior golfers enjoyed beautiful fall weather.

Pureum Lee, 15, of North Vancouver, fired a brilliant 5-under-par 67 to win the low overall score for the field as well as the Boys 14-16 division title – his first win on the MJT with his best score ever. “Coming down the stretch I was thinking of nothing but winning,” he said. “I had seven birdies due to good driving and clutch putting. It feels great to end the season on this note and gives me more confidence for the next season.” Lee began playing on the MJT in 2005 at age 13, shooting scores of 90 and 85, and ended 2006 with an 85.6 stroke average. Murray Poje, Executive Director of the MJT and CPGA Professional, commented on Lee’s stellar progress: “This year he has shaved 10 strokes off, improving to a 76 overall stroke average. This is what the MJT hopes to help players achieve.”
