Field bows out on a high at MJT Bow Valley Credit Union Classic

Calgary, AB – (August 18, 2012) – A huge storm rolled through North East Calgary on Tuesday August 14, causing large branches to fall from trees at Bearspaw Country Club in Calgary, AB, and flags to be pulled out of the holes, plus a full power outage, but you could not tell on Wednesday morning. With the maintenance staff working feverishly, the course was in pristine condition for a full field of junior golfers on the Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT), competing in the two-day MJT Bow Valley Credit Union Classic on August 15 and 16. “The greens were a real treat – they are difficult, undulating and very fast,” said MJT Tournament Director and PGA Professional, Trent Matson. “The entire golf course was in fantastic condition, but the greens may be the best we have seen all year!”

Derek Field, 19, of Calgary, fired 69-72 to win the final junior event of his MJT career, claiming low overall and the MJT Bow Valley Credit Union Classic Boys 17-19 title over Evan Holmes, 17, also of Calgary, who shot 69 on the second day only to watch Field close with solid golf to finish one shot ahead. When asked what his thoughts were on the tournament, Field said, “I was trying to stay aggressive as Evan was getting very close. It was a great match throughout the day.” Holmes, however, is the age-eligible qualifier for an exemption into the San Diego Junior Amateur Golf Championship this January in San Diego, CA, USA. The Boys 17-19 third place went to Calgary’s Brayden Brown, 17, who carded 72-76.
