MJT Ontario Series at Paris Grand GC

Jones Joins Winner’s Circle at MJT’s Paris Grand Event

For Immediate Release - PARIS, ON – (June 27, 2011) –
Keaton Jones, 15, of Kitchener, ON, was the low finisher in this weekend’s Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour Ontario Series at Paris Grand Golf Club in Paris, June 25-26, where he emerged with the lowest two day total on a difficult golf course that saw players recording higher than normal scores. The challenging course did not dampen enthusiasm among the junior golfers, however, as a great atmosphere surrounded the closing holes with much of the field staying after their round to watch completion of play and cheer on their fellow competitors.

Jones wins an exemption into a PGA Junior Series event of his choice in the USA after playing two steady rounds of golf (76-74=150) to take a two stroke victory the Boys 14-16 Division over Alex Rajna, 16, of Waterloo, ON, who fired the only under-par round of the tournament. Rajna’s second day 71 moved him up the leaderboard considerably after his disappointing 81 opening round. On the win, Jones noted that “not making big numbers and making lots of pars,” was his key to victory. He continued, “It feels satisfying to win after playing so well in the past couple weeks.” Rajna’s 152 total earned him runner-up honours over Evan DeGrazia, 16, of Thunder Bay, ON, who shot a pair of 77’s for a 154 total and a third place finish.
