Tour Alums Dominate Leaderboard in Sun Life Financial Ladies Amateur

Jul 15, 2015

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.

If At First You Don't Succeed.....

Jul 14, 2015

After two runner-up finishes so far this year on Tour (Innisfail and Lacombe), Jeremy Rietze of Lacombe broke through today at Whitetail Crossing GC in Mundare for his first Tour win of the season. While admittedly not having his "A" game today ("I sort of scraped it around"), Rietze still navigated his way through the fescue and water-lined fairways in a 3-over par 75. Brandon Murphy of Mighty Peace GC and Justin Pasitney of St. Paul tied for second one shot back on 76. Eight junior girls were on hand and Hailey Turcotte of Falher, playing out of the Mighty Peace GC in Peace River, turned in a solid 90 in windy conditions, two shots clear of Royal Mayfair's Alyshia Suleman. Full results will be on the Tour website by 8 p.m. this evening.

Jul 14, 2015

Tyler Saunders of Glendale GCC in Edmonton is a two-time McLennan Ross Junior Tour Champion, and is set to defend his 2014 Sun Life Financial Men's Amateur Championship later this month at the Edmonton Petroleum Club. By after today, Tyler has bigger game in his sights as he survived a 70-man, 36-hole Sectional Qualifier to gain entry into the 2015 U.S. Amateur Championship. Playing at Columbine GC in Denver, Saunders was well back after 18 holes after firing a 3-over par 75 at the 7,394-yard, par 72 layout, but Saunders Spiethed the Columbine layout in his second round with a stunning NINE-under par 63 for a 36-hole total of 6-under par 138, good for 2nd place in this Sectional qualifier that had only 3 spots in the U.S. Amateur up for grabs. The 2015 U.S. Amateur will be held August 17-23 at Olympia Fields GC in Olympia Fields, Illinois. Congratulations to Tyler!

A Stampede of Birdies in Ponoka

Jul 13, 2015

Perfect scoring conditions greeted 56 junior golfers from across Alberta this morning at the Ponoka Junior Open, today's stop on the McLennan Ross Junior Golf Tour, Presented by Crowe MacKay. The kids did not disappoint, either, as several juniors had outstanding rounds. Leading the way were Dakota Smith of the Public Player Club and Shaye and Daria Ledenius, twin sisters from Ponoka now playing out of Wolf Creek. Smith overcame a first-hole double bogey to play 7-under over his final 17 holes, posting a competitive career-low 5-under par 67, low round on the Tour this year and three shots clear of Jaxon Lynn of Red Deer GCC. In the Junior Girls' division, Daria and Shaye went back and forth all day in a tight battle, but when the smoke (what smoke?) cleared, Daria's 74 was a single shot better than her sister. Fine play by all concerned! Full results are now on the website.
