2016 MJT Ford Series at Swan-e-Set Bay Resort & CC

May 28-29, 2016
Pitt Meadows, BC

Great finish after tough start in MJT Ford Series at Swan-e-set; several qualify for major events

Pitt Meadows, BC – (May 30, 2016) – Heavy rain on Saturday May 28th caused the opening round of the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s Ford Series at Swan-e-set Bay Resort in Pitt Meadows, BC, to be shortened to nine holes, however great weather on Sunday allowed for a fine finish with players qualifying for various high level tournaments and three coming close to winning a 2016 Ford Focus SE in a hole-in-one contest sponsored by Ford of Canada and West Coast Ford Lincoln.

Firstly, Andy Jang, 15, of Langley BC and the Redwoods Golf Club, together with Braeden Cooper, 15 of Vernon, BC and the Vernon Golf Club, won paid entries into the Vancouver Golf Tour’s MTC Open at Riverway Golf Course in Burnaby, BC, on June 11, after Jang won Low Overall and the MJT Juvenile Boys division title by one stroke (38, 75=113). “My short game saved my errant tee shots,” he said. “Cooper was coming in hot, but my putting stopped him. I feel great because this is my first win of the season.”  Cooper had to settle for the runner-up position with 39, 75 (114) and third place went to Mitchell Catania, 16, of North Vancouver (43, 76=119).
