MJT Cattermole Group Classic at King's Links GC
Qualifier: Texas Jr. Masters

June 21-22, 2008
Delta, BC

NAKAJIMA CROWNED NEW KING OF KING’S LINKS
12-YEAR-OLD KEEL IS QUEEN


DELTA, B.C.: King’s Links Golf Club in Delta hosted a two-day Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour tournament this past weekend, sponsored by long-time tour supporter, Cattermole Group. The MJT Cattermole Group Classic featured a full field of competitive junior golfers vying for division titles as well as exemptions into the Texas Junior Masters in San Antonio, TX, this August.

Day one enjoyed decent weather while day two saw the wind come into play on the links-style course, which wreaked havoc with some scores. Local Steven Nakajima, 17, who finished one stroke off the lead with a 74 on day one, played solid enough on day two to improve by two strokes and claim the overall low score for the field. Nakajima shot 74-72 (146), securing a spot to Texas. “It was one of my best ball striking weeks I've had in a while, and to add to that, my putting wasn’t too bad either,’ he said. “Winning low overall and a spot to Texas makes me feel like all of my hard work has finally paid off. It will be a great experience and I look forward to meeting other juniors from around the world.” Finishing in second place in the Boys 17 and up category with scores of 76-75 (151) was Keith Martin, 19, of Kelowna, B.C., followed by Marion Hernandez, 19, of Richmond, B.C., who scored 73-80 (153) to finish third.
