Ruiz wins spot in Florida event

For Immediate Release – Petersburg, ON – (May 9, 2011) –
The Ontario junior golf season teed off with the Quagmire Golf Classic at Rebel Creek Golf Club in Petersburg over the Mother’s Day weekend on the Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT), with a large field of young players from across the province. Warm temperatures with sunny and calm spring weather greeted the field as they competed in four age divisions and skill competition categories. Matthew Chiasson, 17, of Cambridge, ON, and Kody Fry, 16, of Grand Valley, ON, earned the honour of joint low finishers for the weekend, each winning their respective age divisions with a 149 total, and Michelle Ruiz, 15, of Mississauga, ON, earned an exemption into the Future Collegiate World Tour (FCWT) National Championship at PGA National Golf Club in Florida at the end of this month.

Chiasson’s rounds of 74-75 were good enough to deliver a three shot victory in the Boys 17-19 year old division. “My birdie on 13 today after making double there yesterday was a highlight for me,” he said, adding, “Early season practice along with making key putts allowed me to handle the pressure, and it feels great (to win).” Runner-up in the division was the lone American in the field, Brian Jurkiewicz, 17, of Hamburg, NY, who fired 78-74 (152). Finishing in third was Andrew Moffat, also 17, of Brantford, ON, with rounds of 79-74 for a 153 total.
