SCRYMGEOUR CROWNED MJT-PGA OF ALBERTA JUNIOR CHAMPION WITH
9-UNDER-PAR VICTORY

CALGARY, A.B. – (August 6, 2010) –
The MJT-PGA of Alberta Junior Championship, a major event on the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) which is endorsed by the Professional Golfers’ Association of Alberta (PGA of AB), played out Tuesday through Thursday, August 3rd to 5th, on McKenzie Meadows Golf Course in Calgary, Alberta. The 54-hole tournament is part of a series of national events pioneered by the MJT in conjunction with the provincial PGA zones. A field of 80 top junior golfers from British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Alberta, Tennessee and the United Arab Emirates teed off on the superbly manicured McKenzie Meadows Course and were treated to ideal weather conditions for their three day competition.

A brilliant three day total of nine-under par by Cochrane’s Nick Scrymgeour, 15, won him the Overall Champion title and Championship Flag in the Boys 14-16 Division, as well as a Cleveland Wedge and a $50 Gift Certificate at Boston Pizza. Scrymgeour attributed his incredible performance to his solid putting, where he “putted so well. I was dropping bombs from everywhere! As the wind picked up, I just hit solid shots and made pars.” Scrymgeour won his division by 11 shots, carding rounds of 70-67-70 (207). Tied at a total score of 218 behind Scrymgeour were Kieran Standen, 16, of Edmonton (77-71-70), and Travis Miller, 16, of Calgary (74-71-73). Standen claimed the Runner-up Flag and a White Ice Odyssey Putter via retrogression over Miller, who took home the Third Place Flag, an OGIO backpack and an MJT Canterbury Golf Belt for his efforts.
