Cherutti wins International Junior Masters exemption at MJT’s Mystic stop

For Immediate Release - Ancaster, ON – (May 23, 2011) –
The Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT), Canada’s “Road to College Golf”, staged the second tournament in the 17-event Ontario schedule over the May long weekend at the challenging Mystic Golf Club in Ancaster. Mystic Golf Club is described as a shot-makers course, with a variety of holes and classic risk and reward decisions. It comes as no surprise, then, that solid ball striking was the key for players who scored well, as was the case for Jamie Cherutti – the overall low finisher of the tournament who also wins a paid entry into the 59th East Aurora International Junior Masters in New York State, June 27-July 1, 2011.

Cherutti, 17, of Aurora, ON, hit a lot of greens in regulation en route to a one shot victory in the Boy’s 17-19 division. It was a close finish and he noted that his tournament highlight was a “birdie, birdie” bounce-back that kept him in the race after a disappointing triple bogey. “It feels great to get a win. This will definitely help my order of merit to try and qualify for the MJT Tour Championship (in Florida),” said Cherutti. Matthew Speyer, 17, of Cambridge, ON, shot 75-79 for a 154 total, earning him runner-up honours, while Andrew Moffat, also 17 and from Brantford, ON, improved on a first day 81 with a second day 77 for a 158 total, claiming the bronze medal.
