TRILLO COMES UP TRUMPS AT MJT LINDSAY KENNEY CLASSIC


LANGLEY, B.C.- (September 3, 2010) –
Competitive young golfers on the Maple leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) teed it up one last time before school starts next week, in the two-day Lindsay Kenney Classic at Belmont Golf Club in Langley on September 2nd and 3rd. Sunny, windy conditions prevailed on a course which was playing tough for the juniors who were competing for division titles plus a qualifying spot in the Texas Junior Golf Tour’s Barton Creek Holiday Classic in Texas, USA, this December.

Valentina Trillo, 16, of Port Moody, collected her MJT Team Canada golf bag and uniform at the Lindsay Kenney Classic registration table for her upcoming trip to the Srixon International Junior in Australia next month, and then proceeded to shoot 70-74 (144), winning the Girls title in fine style as well as another international exemption – this time to Texas. “The key to my victory was staying focused but relaxed at the same time – I’d constantly have a song in my head that I would hum along to while I walked or waited,” she explained. “Winning this title is definitely a confidence booster seeing as how I’ll be leaving for Australia with MJT soon where I’ll do my best to represent Team Canada.” Runner-up to Trillo was Keanna Mason, 14, of Maple Ridge, who fired 74-73 (147) and continued her consistently good golf on the MJT. Third place among the girls went to Lauren Atkinson, 17, of Bow, Washington (79-76=155).
