Scobie Scoops International Spots at MJT’s Prodigy Series in Barrie

For Immediate Release – Barrie, ON – (June 6, 2011) –
Young golfers from across the province teed it in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s MJT Prodigy Series at National Pines Golf and Country Club in Barrie on June 4-5, vying for division titles and the chance to warn exemptions into international competitions.

The low score of the weekend belonged to Matthew Scobie’s first round 73 on the challenging par 72 layout. Following up with a second round 80 under tougher conditions, Scobie, 16, of Ajax, ON, held onto his lead, taking low overall at 153 total and the Boys 14-16 division by two strokes over Alex Rajna, 16, from Waterloo, ON.

Scobie, who will now be shortlisted for the Callaway Junior World Golf Championship in San Diego, California, and has a guaranteed exemption into the East Aurora International Junior Masters in Buffalo, New York, commented that he ‘was able to bounce back after making a few mistakes in the middle of the front nine.’ He added, “it feels good (to win) regardless of how I got there.”
