Roach Low Overall at MJT Chinook Credit Union Classic;
claims shortlisted spot for Callaway Junior World Golf Championship

Nanton, AB – (May 14, 2012) – Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) players were treated to fantastic spring weather with very little wind over the Mother’s Day Weekend at the MJT Chinook Credit Union Classic at Nanton Golf Club in Nanton, AB, which was also a qualifier to shortlist players in certain age groups for the 2012 Callaway Junior World Golf Championship this July in La Jolla, California. Tournament Director and PGA of Canada Professional, Trent Matson, commented that the golf course was in great shape, in early summer condition with slippery greens and fast fairways, and added, “It was also great that the staff at Nanton Golf Club are very accommodating and first class.”

Derek Roach, 16, of Calgary, AB, and Glencoe Golf Club, is now on the shortlist for the Callaway Junior Worlds after posting tournament low rounds each day, making the Boys 14-16 title and low overall win look easy. “I hit it quite well each day, and stayed patient, trying not to make anything happen” he said. “It is a great way to start off the year. I just want to play well every week this year.” Runner-up in this division with two solid rounds of 81-75 was Carter Grosart, 16, of Calgary and Willow Park Golf Club, followed by Henderson Lake Golf Club junior member, Matthew Ritchot, 16, of Lethbridge, AB, who carded 75-81 to take home the bronze medal via retrogression.
