McLean, McMinniman, Margeson and Chandler win titles at MJT-NSGA Player of the Year Series in Amherst

Amherst, NS. – (June 8, 2014) – In another great turnout of competitive junior golfers in Nova Scotia, Meghan McLean, Corey McMinniman, Shaun Margeson and Matthew Chandler claimed division titles in the Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s MJT-Nova Scotia Golf Association’s Player of the Year Series at Amherst Golf Club on June 7th and 8th, which was also a qualifier for age-specific shortlisted spots on MJT Team Canada to the SRIXON International Junior Classic in New South Wales, Australia, this October. 

“It was chilly and very windy the first day,” said MJT Tournament Director and PGA Professional, Louis Melanson. “But the golf course was in excellent shape and the kids had a great time.”

Matthew Chandler, 15, of Chester, NS, claimed the Low Overall Title and the MJT Juvenile Boys Division Champion with solid scores of 83-74 (157), becoming shortlisted for a spot to the Australian event as a result.  “Danek (Hadley) made birdies on two and three, so I thought it was going to be a tough day,” said Chandler, “and considering the tough conditions on the first day with cold and wind, I am very excited as this is my first win in a bigger tournament.”  Hadley, 16, of Bathurst, NB, shot consistent scores of 81-81 (162) and finished tied for second with Alexandre Belanger, 16, of St-Jacques, NB, who carded 78-84 (162).
