MJT National Champions Crowned in Phoenix; College Coaches extend offers to several players

Phoenix, Arizona, USA – (November 20, 2012) – The Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s MJT Boston Pizza National Championship presented by Callaway at The Legacy Golf Resort in Phoenix, Arizona, over the November 17-18 weekend, marked a successful finish to the best season ever on Canada’s most-played junior golf tour. Out of 72 golfers from across the country – literally from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, all the way to Tignish, Prince Edward Island - four divisional National Champions were crowned. Highlighting the weekend was key-note speaker Tim Mickelson, Head Golf Coach at Arizona State University and younger brother of PGA Tour Professional Phil Mickelson, who spoke to the juniors about the transition into college golf. Many other coaches were also on hand over the weekend to watch the players, fulfilling the MJT’s mandate as the ‘road to college golf’ as scholarship offers were extended to a number of juniors upon completion of the event.

The players were treated to outstanding weather and a golf course that was in near perfect condition. Keaton Jones, 17, of Kitchener, Ontario, won his second consecutive MJT National Championship, winning the Boys 17-19 Division and Low Overall Honours on the perfectly manicured Legacy Golf Resort with two fine rounds of 71-69 (140). “I played a great final round,” said Jones, who earns American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Performance Stars with his victory. “It feels awesome to win! I could not have done it without my parents, my coaches, my family and the Whistle Bear Golf Course.” Just one stroke back in a three-way tie for second place was Derek Roach, 17, of Calgary, Alberta, (72-69), Jared Du Toit, 17, of Kimberley, British Columbia (72-69), and Jason Fritz, 19, of Lethbridge, Alberta (70-71).
