A Scorcher in Nanton
Jul 29, 2014
A beautiful prairie morning turned searing hot by the time junior golfers from across southern Alberta and as far north as Whitecourt made their way around the Nanton GC today for the latest stop on the McLennan Ross Junior Golf Tour, Presented by Crowe MacKay. Temperatures were hitting 32C by the time the players got off the course, and thankfully Alex Smith of Pinebrook made one more putt than the rest of the field did. Smith fired a 4-over par 75 to nip four players tied for second with 76s. We might STILL be out on the Nanton course in a playoff if we had a 5-way tie! On the junior girls' side, Reese Martin of Brooks earned her way into the field for the Tour Championship at Wolf Creek on August 25 with an 85, today, 5 shots clear of joint runners-up Amanda Graham of Canmore and Sydney Scraba of Canyon Meadows. Full results will be on the Tour website by 6 p.m. this evening.
