Team Glen Abbey Wins MJT International Team Challenge (ITC); GAO Team Ottawa’s Celone and GAO Team York’s Hong win individual titles



Welland, ON - (September 28, 2015) – “This tournament was a spectacular start to what we plan to be a long-standing fall tradition,” said Dave Smallwood, MJT National Director of Player Development, after perfect weather and course conditions topped off a successful inaugural MJT International Team Challenge at Hunters Pointe Golf Club near Niagara Falls in Ontario this past weekend.

Canada’s number one-played Junior Golf Tour, the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour presented by Boston Pizza, hosted six-player teams from Canada and the USA in a daily best four of six aggregate team scoring format on September 26th and 27th, in a tournament which featured teams mainly from across Canada including elite players from the Golf Association of Ontario’s (GAO) Regional Team Program and the Golf Canada Junior Golf Development Centres. The event also included an individual 36 holes medal play format for both the boys and girls divisions.

It was a very close race with only one point separating the top three teams. Team Glen Abbey Golf Club won first place with 594 points over the Golf Association of Ontario’s Team Essex Kent 2 (595 points). Third place went to GAO Team Ottawa (596 points) and MJT Team Alberta rounded out the top four with 602 points.
