QUALIFIER: FCG WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

Abbotsford, BC

Brown and Robertson Share Low Overall at MJT Lindsay Kenney Classic

For Immediate Release – Abbotsford, BC – (May 9, 2011) –
Ledgeview Golf Course was the site of a junior golf showdown in west coast weather this past weekend, when the Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf teed off the MJT Lindsay Kenney Classic. Avoiding the rain, but playing through soft conditions that lengthen the tight Ledgeview track, Marcus Brown, 15, of Surrey, BC, captured his first tournament victory with an impressive showing of 72-70 (142 total), tying for low overall with 19-year-old Scott Robertson, also of Surrey, who fired the low round of the tournament on day one, a 69, followed with 73 on day two for a 142 total.

Brown’s play earned him not only top spot in his age division of Boys 14-16 with a convincing 14 shot victory but also qualified him for the 2011 Future Champions Golf (FCG) World Championship, to be held July 17th - 19th at PGA West Golf Club in La Quinta, California. “I drove the ball great this weekend and putted well,” said Brown. “My tournament highlight was chipping in from 20 yards on number seven. It feels great to know that all of the hard-work I did over the winter paid off and I look forward to competing this summer.” Runner-up Tom Bang, 16, of Coquitlam, carded rounds of 76,80 for a 156 total while Colin Wang, 15, of Vancouver, rounded out the top three with his 79,78=157 total.
