MASON MAKES A POINT

Point Roberts, WA - (October 12, 2009) – After four years of competing in many tournaments on the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT), Keanna Mason shot the low overall score and won her very first Girls division title over the Thanksgiving weekend at Point Roberts Golf and Country Club in Point Roberts, WA.

Mason, 13, of Maple Ridge, fired 74 despite blustery winds on a tough golf course during the Srixon-sponsored event on October 10th, coming out on top of a very good field. “I don’t know what to think of it. I’m mostly shocked right now. I’ve played on this tour since I was 9 and never won,” she said. “It was really my putting, and my driver. I’d like to thank my coach, Brian Jung, and my mom and dad for their dedication.” Runner-up in the Girls division was Anica Yoo, 16, of Port Coquitlam, who finished two strokes back with a 76, edging Valentina Trillo, 15, of Port Moody who had to settle for third place with a 77.

There were playoffs to decide the champions in both the Boys 14-16 and 17-19 divisions. MJT newcomer, Ayrton Mantha, 16, of Penticton, made the trip to the Point worth his while after defeating Vancouver’s Nick Russell, 16, in a playoff after they had tied for first place in Boys 14-16 with a score of 77. “I feel great since this is my first win not at my course,” commented Mantha, who plays out of Penticton Golf Club. Third place in the division was claimed by Austin Hughes, 14, of Tsawwassen, who fired 81.
