Wilson wins MJT Players Championship at Whistle Bear

Cambridge, ON – (July 25, 2012) – A full field of junior golfers on the Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) were treated to two ideal scoring days with a little wind at the MJT Players Championship at Whistle Bear Golf Club in Cambridge, ON, on July 23 and 24. The MJT Players Championship is one of two nationally-ranked events on the MJT Ontario schedule this year, with players earning valuable Golf Canada Order of Merit Points on the CN Future Links Order of Merit as well as a direct exemption into the Golfweek West Fall Tour Championship in Menifee, CA, USA, this December.

Chris Wilson, 17, of Toronto, ON, beat the heat to fire tournament low rounds of 69-74, making birdie on the 16th hole of the second day and never looking back. “It feels amazing to win on the MJT for the first time!” said Wilson, who won low overall and MJT Players Championship Boys 17-19 title. “The tournaments are well organized and it’s a nice feat that I can add to my resume.” Wilson was also the eligible qualifier for the Golfweek Junior Tour’s West Fall Tour Championship spot. Runner-up in the division with two solid rounds of 72-73 was David Fell, 17, of Guelph, ON, followed by Brodie McKinney, 17, of Stony Creek, ON, who carded 74-73 for third place.
