Most of the 2015 Tour schedule has so far been north of Red Deer, but that all changes the next two weeks. On Monday, July 20, we will be in Turner Valley; Tuesday at Carstairs and next Wednesday in Olds. Watch this space over the next 24 hours for full updates on these upcoming events, but as of now, entries are still open for all three tournaments. If you wish to make sure your entry is accepted, and in order to help these courses plan for their events, please enter today.
I suppose this result was fairly predictable! Two weeks ago, Andrew Harrison of the host Camrose GC crushed the competition in the Alberta Golf Junior Boys Championship at Henderson Lake in Lethbridge, finishing 9-under par for 72 holes and a mere 13 shots ahead of his nearest competitor. So when Andrew dropped by today on the 5th anniversary of his first Tour win at age 13 when he shot 71 in this event, in horse racing terms, he paid $2.10, $2.10, and $2.10. Andrew's 2-under par 68 was three shots clear of runner-up Nick Vandermey of the Links at Spruce Grove. We had a nice turnout of ten junior girls on hand today, including some very promising fresh faces. Kaitlyn Wingnean of the Derrick bagged her first Tour win with a nifty 85 ( about one stroke per pound of her body weight), no easy task in the cool, windy conditions. Alyshia Suleman of the Royal Mayfair was two strokes in the rear view mirror with an 87. Full results will be on the website by 8:30 p.m. this evening.
No disrespect to the junior boys on hand today at Montgomery Glen GC in Wetaskiwin, but with a season-high 11 junior girls on hand for today's Tour event, it seemed only fitting to give the girls top billing. Clare McMahon of Balmoral GC in Red Deer, the 2014 Srixon Order of Merit winner, is starting to round into form with her second win in two weeks, firing a fine 81 today at Montgomery Glen. Sydney Scraba of Canyon Meadows was three shots back in 2nd, with Kennedy Turcotte of High Prairie in 3rd with an 86. In the junior boys' division, Justin Berget of Stony Plain fired what he described as a "boring" 1-over par 73 to take down his first Tour win this season. Logan Hill of Red Deer was two shots back on 75. Full results from today's event will be on the website by 8:30 p.m.
The 2015 Sun Life Financial Alberta Golf Ladies Championship heads into the final round of the 54-hole championship tomorrow at Calgary's Lynx Ridge GC. The leaderboard is dominated by former McLennan Ross Junior Tour grads, including previous Tour Champion Jennifer Ha of Glencoe GC in first place with rounds of 72-66, 4-under par for 36 holes. Ha holds a narrow 1-stroke lead over Sabrine Garrison of Country Hills (73-66) as the tournament winds up on Thursday. Other prominent players on the leaderboard who played extensively on the Tour as juniors include Sydney McDonald of Fox Hollow in 3rd, another former Tour Champion Jaclyn Lee of Glencoe in 4th, and Devon Spriddle of Henderson Lake in 5th. We even have a couple of 'old-timers' on the first page of the leaderboard in Meaghan LeBlanc of Bearspaw (T6) and Jocelyn Alford of Earl Grey (T8). It is nice to see all these young women doing well in Alberta Golf competition.
The 2017 season will be the twenty-second for the McLennan Ross Junior Golf Tour. The Tour is organized through the offices of Parcom Marketing Inc. in Edmonton. Parcom Online is a full service advertising and marketing agency with an extensive background in the golf industry in Alberta.

The McLennan Ross Junior Golf Tour takes great pride in the quality of its competitors, its host facilities, and the support provided by our Corporate Partners. The efforts of the administrative staff and the volunteers that go into making the Tour so successful demand a very high standard of behavior and decorum from the competitors. We have therefore developed a formal Code of Coduct modeled on that of Alberta Golf that provides a set of guidelines for the young men and women that wish to compete in McLennan Ross Junior Golf Tour events.
