Williams wins International Exemptions at MJT’s Saskatchewan Season Opener

For Immediate Release – Lumsden, SK – (May 24, 2011) –
The Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT), Canada’s “Road to College Golf”, teed off their five-event Saskatchewan Series at Deer Valley Golf and Estates in Lumsden on May 22 and 23. Junior golfers from three provinces battled the breeze over two days at the very challenging course and emerged with some impressive scores and stellar performances, with Albertan Matt Williams taking low overall honours with his four-under-par 140 total.

Williams, 15, of Calgary, opened his tournament with an even par 72 and closed with a four-under-68 even after a bad bounce off a greenside sprinkler on 15 led to a double bogey, ending up with a nine stroke victory in the Boys 14-16 year old division. This garnered him a paid entry into a US Junior Sectionals Qualifier in addition to a spot on the MJT’s shortlist for the Junior World Championships in San Diego this July.
