The more the Merrier on MJT’s Ford Series at Hazelmere

Surrey, BC – (August 31, 2016) -  Evan Merrier, 17, of Surrey, BC, broke through for his first MJT win in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s Ford Series at Hazelmere Golf Club in Surrey, BC, August 29 and 30, after he fired steady rounds of 75, 71 (146) to overtake first-rounder leader, Christian Zalli, 17, of Vancouver, BC (74, 74=148), and claim the MJT Junior Boys division title.

Merrier went from the pond to the podium, as back in 2013 he had a memorable start playing in his very first MJT event when his bag of golf clubs rolled away down an incline into a pond on Morgan Creek Golf Club in Surrey and sank, forcing him to withdraw. “It feels amazing to win my first MJT – I am so happy and proud of myself,” he said after his round yesterday. “I stayed in the moment and played one shot at a time, never got ahead of myself and never gave up!” Third place in the division went to Rowan Froese, 18, of Kamloops, BC (80, 77=157).
