Zhang Claims Low Overall in Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour?s Alberta Opener

LETHBRIDGE, AB: A full field of junior golfers who came from as far away as Manitoba and Saskatchewan, as well as from all over Alberta, competed in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour?s Alberta season-opener this past weekend at the Paradise Canyon Golf Resort in Lethbridge.

The two-day event, which was sponsored by 1st Choice Savings Credit Union, was a qualifier for the Future Collegian?s World Tour?s (FCWT) National Championship at PGA National Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, USA, May 28-30, 2005. Eligible for exemptions were the top finishers in each of the four divisions, aged between 11 and 18.

Dean Spriddle, former Canadian PGA Teacher of the Year and MJT tournament director for Alberta, found the conditions on the first day of competition quite typical for Lethbridge spring golf ? very windy and difficult to score. Only three players in the exceptionally strong field were able to beat par with winds gusting to 70km at different times. Day two began with mild, calm, conditions perfect for scoring, however conditions changed throughout the day to rain and wind.
