ROBERTS ARIZONA-BOUND AFTER MJT’S MCKENZIE MEADOWS STOP

CALGARY, AB – Junior golfers at the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s (MJT) tournament at McKenzie Meadows Golf Course in Calgary this past Tuesday and Wednesday rated the course in excellent shape, and this fact combined with hot weather led to some good scores despite 30kph to 40kph winds during round two. Players were competing for their respective division titles in the two-day event as well as for a spot in the CAN-USA Team Matches at ASU Karsten Golf Club in Tempe, Arizona, this December.

Calgarians dominated the Boys 17 and up division, where Tyler Roberts, 17, edged out David Durbeniuk by a shot to claim the overall low score and his division, earning the exemption to Arizona. “Coming down the stretch I was just thinking about making par,” said Roberts, after shooting great rounds of 71-72 (143). “A few competitors had me worried at this point as the group was tight at the end and I made a couple of putts to stay alive. Putting and the great conditions of the course were key. It feels great, it’s my first win so it’s a new, cool feeling.” Durbeniuk, 18, shot 70-75 (145). Craig Klassen, 18, closed with an outstanding 68 to vault into third place in the division (78-68=146).
