MJT Ontario Season Opener at Rebel Creek GC
QUALIFIER: FCWT National Championship/East Aurora International Junior Masters

May 8-9, 2010
Petersburg, ON

FIRST TIMERS DOMINATE MJT SEASON OPENER IN ONTARIO; FOUR WIN INTERNATIONAL EXEMPTIONS

PETERSBURG, ON – (May 10, 2010) – Torrential rains and high winds at Rebel Creek Golf Course in Petersburg over mother’s day weekend forced the Ontario season-opener on the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) to be shortened to 18 holes, which played out May 9th in cold, windy weather. The packed field of junior golfers competed for division titles and spots in the following international tournaments: the 58th East Aurora International Junior Masters (EAIJM) in New York State, USA; the Future Collegiate World Tour (FCWT) National Championship in Florida, USA; and the Faldo Series U.K. Championship at Trentham in England.

MJT newcomer, Jamie Cherutti, 16, of Aurora, ON, battled it out to win the Boys 14-16 division by two strokes with his score of 75, earning the EAIJM exemption. “The conditions were good but the wind made it tough,” he said after his victory. “My coach recommended this tour and I feel really good to win an event early in the season.” Based on retrogression (best last nine holes), Louis Tomlinson, 16, of Lake Mary, Florida, USA, received one of the two spots in the Faldo Series U.K. Championship at Trentham after shooting 77 to tie for second place in the division with Matt Gerber, 15, of Kitchener, ON.
