13-Year-Old Wins Low Overall at MJT’s Ontario PGA Junior Championship

For Immediate Release - London, ON. – (July 4, 2011) –
The MJT-Ontario PGA Junior Championship played out at Forest City National Golf Club in London this past Canada Day weekend, the first in a major series of Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour- Canadian Zone PGA events across Canada, and also a Golf Association of Ontario-ranked tournament. Players faced some hot and humid weather but fantastic course conditions at the challenging course. Taking it low in the first round and holding onto the lead over the 36 holes was Tony (Taekkun) Gil, 13, of Markham, ON, who played up a division with the older age group and was crowned MJT-Ontario PGA Junior Boys 14-16 champion as well as low overall winner for the entire field.

Gil, playing in his first Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour event, fired 69-75 (144) and stated, “It feels so good to win - it will also boost my confidence for future tournaments. The tournament highlight for me was making a 40 foot birdie putt on the fifth hole. The key to my victory was to stay calm and focused and the big thing for me was my short game.” Runner-up in the Boys 14-16 division was Keaton Jones, 15, of Kitchener, ON, who shot 80-72 (152), while third place was claimed by 16 year old Chris Wilson of Toronto, ON, who also opened low (71-82=153).
