MJT Alberta Series at The Links at Spruce Grove

Saunders sizzles with a 67 at MJT’s Spruce Grove stop

Spruce Grove, AB – (May 28, 2012) – A full field of junior players on the Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) were treated to two warm, spring-like days on May 26 and 27 in the MJT Alberta Series at The Links at Spruce Grove golf course, which was a Golf Alberta-ranked event and also a qualifier for an exemption into the Future Champions Golf World Championship this July in La Quinta, California.

Located 20 kilometres west of Edmonton, The Links is a great facility nestled in the community of Spruce Grove, and is the host for the Canadian Tour qualifying site for the Edmonton Telus Open later this summer. “The players were treated to a fun golf course, which was a good test, and received first rate service from the staff,” said Tournament Director Trent Matson.

Tyler Saunders, 16, of Sturgeon County, AB, posted tournament low rounds each day, with a stellar performance on Sunday blazing the golf course with eight birdies en route to 67, making the win look easy. “I hit it quite well each day, and made a ton of putts today,” said Saunders. “It is a great way to start off the year with my low tournament round. I just want to play well and post other low rounds throughout the year.” Runner-up with two solid rounds of 80-72 was Matt Codd, 16, of Red Deer, AB, who holed out with his second shot on number 18 on Sunday. Third place went to Jon Fry, 16, of Calgary, AB, who carded 73-81 to take home the bronze medal.
