Geiser holds back Hurricane Irene to go low overall at MJT’s Timber Ridge stop

- Brighton, ON – (August 29, 2011) – Hurricane Irene-related weather systems played havoc on golfers during the final round of the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s MJT Ontario Series at Timber Ridge Golf Club in Brighton this past weekend, where high winds drove up the scoring average and challenged all competitors to maintain focus.

18 year old Jonathan Lam of Markham fired a brilliant opening round of 67 to lead by one over Brett Geiser, 17, also of Markham, however day two proved to be the deciding factor and Geiser won the Boys 17-19 Division title with scores of 68+76=144, after Lam closed with a 79 to finish at 146 total score, and third place in the division went to Oakville’s Joshua Richard-Munro, 18, who carded 77+78=155. Geiser commented, “I had a very good first day which got me to one off the lead and in good position for Sunday. Then Sunday, I just grinded out the front nine and a birdie from the waste bunker on eleven clinched it in my mind. The MJT run great tournaments and the fields really make you play to the best of your ability to win. I feel awesome to win over a great competitor like Jonathan and it was very close all day, lots of fun.” His victory secures him an exemption into the Golfweek Championship at McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale, AZ, this December.
