2014 MJT Season Opener/Team Canada Qualifier at Winkler Centennial Golf Course

Winkler, MB

Sackett and Vetesnik repeat as winners of MJT Team Canada qualifier in chilly Winkler

Winkler, MB. – (May 11, 2014) –  Zack Sackett and Veronica Vetesnik, both of Winnipeg, MB, won their respective division titles in the Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s MJT Manitoba Season Opener at Winkler Centennial Golf Club in Winkler on May 10th and 11th, renewing their spots on MJT Team Canada to the Srixon International Junior Classic in Australia this October. 

“Day two was an absolute battle,” said MJT Tournament Director and PGA Professional, Ed Boge. “It was cold, a little rainy at times, very windy with some huge gusts.  The kids did an awesome job battling the elements.” 

Sackett, 18, fired 71-77 (148) to win Low Overall and the MJT Junior Boys 17-19 title by two strokes over Kirk Markowski, 17, of Dryden, ON (73, 77=150). “My shot from the bunker on 12 to 15 feet (of the pin) was a highlight,” said Sackett, who re-qualifies for MJT Team Canada as a result. Third place in this division went to Bart Kaminski, 17, of Winnipeg, who shot 80, 72 (152).
