2023 MJT MB Season Opener / IMG Jr. Worlds Qualifier at St. Boniface Golf Club

May 6-7, 2023
Winnipeg, MB

Game growing in Manitoba with over 80 in Maple Leaf Junior Tour’s opener; several qualify for FCG World Championship

 

The Manitoba circuit of the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour had a great start to the non-profit program’s 25thanniversary season this past weekend at St. Boniface Golf Club in Winnipeg, where both Junior (U19) and Mini Tour(12U) events played out and over 80 young athletes participated. Results of the 19U event on May 6 and 7 are highlighted here, where players competed for titles in six divisions plus the chances to qualify for three major events: the FCG Callaway World Championship in Rancho Mirage, CA, the PGA Tour Canada-affiliated MJT Future Stars presented by ATB in Edmonton, AB, and the IMG Academy Junior World Championship in San Diego, CA. The MJT is the sole qualifier in Canada for the first two majors.

Two difficult scoring days made for a challenge, with winds swirling around the historic St. Boniface track, keeping players on the defensive.  Addison Kartusch, 16, of Winnipeg, MB, continued her solid play from last season (87-80 = 167) and secured the MJT Girls Low Overall and 15-19 Division titles.  On the Boys side, MJT veteran Zostrianos Giordani-Gross, 16, of Brandon, MB, navigated the conditions while carding 72-80 (152) to win Low Overall and the MJT Junior Boys title.  Both Kartusch and Giordani-Gross, along with each other division winner, secured the MJT’s exclusive exemptions into the FCG Callaway World Championship; the full list of qualified players is noted below, along with top results and winner quotes.
