CREIGHTON WINS BY 11 STROKES ON MJT AT PENN HILLS

Shubenacadie, NS – (September 1, 2010) –
Myles Creighton, of Digby, NS, and Digby Pines Golf Club, who is just 14 years old, continued his winning ways on the Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) and fired solid rounds of 74-73 (147) to claim the Boys 14-16 division title by a record 11 strokes in the MJT’s CPGA-Atlantic Junior Championship at the Links at Penn Hills in Shubenacadie on August 30th and 31st.

In very hot weather with high humidity, Creighton was clearly the key competitor to beat on the challenging Penn Hills layout even when taking the different yardages played by the three age groups into account. “The course was in good condition and I hit the ball well,” he said. “My tournament highlight was hitting 16 greens in regulation the first day. I feel pretty happy (about winning).” There was a tie for second place in Boys 14-16 at 158 total score between Alex Feltmate, 16, of Fletcher’s Lake, NS, (75-83) and Daniel Keays, 15, of Bedford, NS, (79-79). Feltmate won the division’s Mr. Lube Long Drive competition, while Brad Curren, 16, of Hammonds Plains, NS, won the Sundog Closest-to-the-Pin.
