NAGINDAS ENDS MJT SEASON ON HIGH NOTE AT WHISTLE BEAR

Cambridge, ON - (October 26, 2009) – The season-ending tournament on the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT), Canada’s only national junior tour run exclusively by Golf Professionals, played out on Saturday October 24 at Whistle Bear Golf Club in Cambridge. The one day event featured the biggest number of junior golfers in each age group for the season, who were competing for division titles in poor weather which was described by MJT Tournament Director, Dave Smallwood, CPGA, as ‘some of the worst weather’ he’s seen for golf. “Heavy winds, rain on and off, cold. The kids played very well under those conditions.”

Shyamal Nagindas, 16, of Aurora, fired an excellent round of 76 in the wind and rain to win the Boys 14-16 division as well as low overall score for the field. Two strokes back in the division was runner-up Oliver Stephens, 14, of Sarnia, while Truman Tai, 15, of Markham, posted a fine 37 on the front nine but 42 on the back to settle for third place with 79.

A score of 79 won Jason Watchorn, 17, of Waterloo, his first Boys 17-19 title after a solid season on the MJT. MJT Team Canada member Sterling Emery, 18, of Orangeville, fresh off participation in the Srixon International Junior Classic in Cessnock, Australia, placed second in the division with a score of 81. There was a tie for third place at 83 between Luke Kremer, 17, of North York, and Brett Kennedy, 17, of Kitchener.
