Winner Quote: Rosie Bee Kim, 14, of Edmonton, AB: “I had a five shot lead going into the second day, so I was already aware that the odds are in my favour. I tried to continue playing yesterday's consistent golf without setting too many expectations. Holing my bunker shot for an eagle on the sixth hole was a confidence boost for sure, and it kept on going low from there. It feels great to secure the win, especially in my first MJT tournament! Honestly what I found the most enjoyable out of the two days where the laughs that it got to share with my friends. There was a great balance between getting in the zone to play some good golf and just joking around with people. I'm a consistent player above all and I have the ability to stay calm under pressure these attributes definitely worked to my advantage over the weekend, especially in the second round, knocking my approach shots close also provide me with a lot of opportunities for birdies.

Winner Quote: Bennett Love, 11, of Red Deer, AB: “It feels great to win, I’m happy with my scores and I realized on about 15 that I was securing the win. It was nice to shoot a 72 on the second day too! My irons helped me the best this weekend.”

Winner Quote: Tyler Kidd, 14, of Buck Lake,  AB: “It feels good winning two events in a row. Me and Brae were back and forth all day, our scores weren’t separated by more than one stroke until the 15th hole. Nothing was super stellar this weekend for skills that helped me secure the win, but my driving definitely helped me secure the win. Also my favourite memory of the weekend was winning the long drive award.”
