Helgason Dominates at the Butte

PICTURE BUTTE, AB ? Despite the recent flooding in the region and windswept conditions over this past weekend, Gary Helgason, 17, of Edmonton, destroyed Picture Butte Golf Club in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour?s 1st Choice Savings Series event, firing rounds of 71-67 for a total six-under-par 138.

?I played well, never made any mistakes,? said Helgason, who won the low overall and the Boys 17 and up division title, holding off Tyler Kemp, 19, of Lethbridge. Kemp shot 77 in the first round and battled hard to get to four-under-par on the second day (77-68=145). Judd Blackwater, 17, of Fort MacLeod, played steady with rounds of 75-71 (146) to finish third.

In the Girls Division, Breanne Neufeld, 15, of Coaldale, fired two solid rounds of 76-79 (155) for a one shot victory over Bari-Lynn Erais, 17, of Lethbridge. Both girls started the second day tied for the lead. ?Even though my strategy was to just play my own game I thought about Bari-Lynn on almost every shot,? said Neufeld.
