Players battle elements at MJT Mountain View Credit Union Classic

Olds, AB – (June 11, 2012) – Rain, lightning, thunder and a tornado watch cancelled play on the first day of the June 9-10 Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s MJT Mountain View Credit Union Classic at Olds Central Highland Golf Club in Olds, however the full field of young players battled through the elements on the second day despite winds constantly blowing at 50-60 km/hr and gusting higher, and managed to finish 18 holes.

In the Boys 17-19 Division, nine holes was completed on this first day before the weather hit, and Brayden Brown, 17, of Calgary, AB, took full advantage of extremely difficult conditions to claim his division’s Gold medal. Brown stated “playing well in very tough conditions on the first day was key.” He was the only player to break par on the first nine holes, following it up with an 80 to edge Calgary’s JP Holliday, 18, by one shot (39-77). “It was so difficult today, with the winds blowing at 50-60km. We were all trying to just hold it together,” added Brown. On the final hole of the tournament, Brown lost his tee shot, went back to the tee to re-hit, and made birdie on his second ball to claim victory over Holliday. Finishing in third place was Jason Fritz, 19, of Lethbridge, AB, who shot 39-79.
