2023 MJT Ford Series at Stony Plain Golf Course

June 17-18, 2023
Stony Plain, AB

125 take part in MJT’s Ford-sponsored events at Stony Plain during weather-affected weekend

 

An impressive number of 125 youth came out to participate in three days of Ford-sponsored events on Canada’s number one-played Junior Golf Tour in Stony Plain, Alberta, over the weekend. A free Zender Ford Junior Golf Clinic was held on June 16, to introduce kids in the community to the game, followed by the MJT Ford Series at Stony Plain Golf Club on June 17-18, in which 77 elite players competed. This two-day tournament, which was affected by poor weather on day two, was the first of seven nationally sponsored events by MJT Premier Partner, Ford Canada.  Players were competing for titles in six divisions plus the chance to be short-listed for MJT Team Canada to the prestigious Jack Newton International Junior Classic in New South Wales, Australia.  The event also featured a Ford Hole in One contest, which gave players the opportunity to win a 2024 Ford Escape valued at $40,000.

Drenching rain forced the shortening of the MJT Ford Series tournament to 27 holes with the golf course becoming unplayable on Sunday afternoon. Players battled through the conditions and finishing with Low Overall honours were Ethan Howes, 18, of Fort Saskatchewan, AB, and Olivia Johnson, 14, of Calgary, AB.  Johnson and Payton Benneweis, 16, of Edmonton, AB, were the age-appropriate players (15-17) short-listed for MJT Team Canada to Australia. The final team will be announced once qualifying has concluded across the country.
