How Loro Can You Go-Ro?
Jul 08, 2015
Much of the fun running the Tour is seeing young people earn their first tournament win, or first hole-in-one, or a career low round. Justin Loro of Country Hills GC bagged his first Tour win today with a 76 on the lightning fast greens and tightly groomed fairways of the Lacombe GCC in the Jordan Brand Memorial Junior Open, one of four charter events on the Tour dating back to our inaugural 1996 season. While not a competitive personal best, Loro did earn his maiden victory, despite bogeying his final four holes of his round. The host club's Jeremy Rietze earned his second runner-up finish in two days, firing a 78 to tie for 2nd with Bryce Kopec of Alberta Springs. With close to 20 junior girls competing this week at the Golf Canada Future Links Championship at Goose Hummock Golf Resort, Clare McMahon of Balmoral GC found herself as the sole junior girl in the field today, but fired a solid 89 just the same. Full results will be on the Tour website by 10 p.m. this evening.
