2013 MJT KIKKOR Classic at Morgan Creek Golf Course

April 6-7, 2013
Surrey, BC

Kudos to Juniors and James Lepp at MJT KIKKOR Classic

VANCOUVER, B.C. – (April 8, 2013) – It took playoffs in two divisions and some outstanding scores among 100 junior golfers to produce the top finishers in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s MJT KIKKOR Classic at Morgan Creek Golf Club in South Surrey, BC,  which played out in tricky spring conditions over the April 6th and 7th weekend.

A highlight for participants was having James Lepp, Canada's Top Amateur Male Golfer in 2005, 2004, and 2003, Canada’s first-ever NCAA Champion, two-time winner on the Canadian Tour, four-time All American, Medallist at the 2005 U.S. Amateur, star of the recent Big Break Greenbrier and KIKKOR Golf founder, present every player with a pair of KIKKOR golf shoes, and provide individual ‘saucer pass’ lessons after the final round.

The Low Overall and MJT Junior Boys 17-19 title was won by Kevin Vigna, 17, of Coquitlam, BC, who fired brilliant rounds of 70-71 (141) to edge Darren Day, 18, of Victoria, BC (72-70=142), by just one stroke. Third place in the division went to Steven Lee, 17, of Kelowna, BC, who carded similarly excellent scores of 71-72 (143). Vigna now receives an exemption into the 61st East Aurora International Junior Masters in New York State, June 24-28, one of America's oldest and most prestigious junior events, attracting players from South Africa, Mexico, France, Scotland, Japan, Colombia, Peru and the United States.
