Hot Streak Continues for Wong on MJT with 6-Under-Par at McCleery

Vancouver, BC – BC Junior Champion Eugene Wong, 15, of North Vancouver, continued his winning ways on the Boston Pizza –sponsored Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour this past weekend, shooting a 6-under-par round on McCleery Golf Course.

McCleery was the second stop on the MJT’s special One Day Series in Vancouver, and featured junior golfers in four age divisions. “The highlight for me was making five birdies and an eagle to shoot 65,” said Wong, who took the low overall honours as well as the Boys 14-16 division title.

Sean Craigon, 15, of Maple Ridge, finished with a fine 69 to place second in the division, while Michael Lawrence, 15, of Richmond, shot 76 to claim third.

Fierce competition in the Boys 13 and under division saw one stroke separating the top finishers. 10-year-old Kevin Lee carded a winning score of 73 which was his best on the MJT to date. Lee, originally from Winnipeg and now Surrey, has radically improved on the Tour this season. “My first MJT tournament was at Swan-e-set (in March) and my score was 97 – now it is 73 (two over par),” stated Lee. “Five-under is my future goal.”
