Puttin' on the Rietze! McMahon Wins Again!
Jul 23, 2014
Jeremy Rietze of Lacombe sunk a 10-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole of a sudden-victory playoff this afternoon to defeat Edmonton Country Club's Jacob Thomas at the Olds Junior Open, today's Tour stop. Rietze and Thomas had each fired excellent rounds of 1-under par 71 to force overtime. Peter Slade of Earl Grey was a shot back in solo third with an even-par 72. In the Junior Girls' division, Clare McMahon of Balmoral pulled further away in the Srixon Order of Merit standings with her 5th Tour win of the year, recovering from a poor front 9 of 44 to shoot even-par 36 on the back for an 18-hole total of 80, three shots clear of Courtney Dickson of Innisfail. Full results will be on the website by 8:30 p.m. this evening.
