It's "Hip" to be Owen

Jul 29, 2015

The 31st annual Kevin Hipple Memorial Junior Open was held this morning under warm sunny skies and ideal scoring conditions at Pinebrook GCC in southwest Calgary. Named for a former junior member at Pinebrook who passed away at roughly the age of many of the young golfers competing today, the "Hipple" has been a mainstay of the Calgary junior golf scene for over three decades. Owen MacEachern of Country Hills and Amanda Graham of Canmore became the latest tournament champions today. MacEachern made it 2 for 2 for Country Hills junior boys in the last two days as MacEachern fired a steady 2-over par 73 to edge Bearspaw's Max Murchison by a single stroke. Graham had a little easier time, as her 89 was 4 shots ahead of young Kaitlyn Wingnean of Edmonton's Derrick GWC. Full results will be on the Tour website by 6 p.m. this evening.

Sudden Victory at Country Hills

Jul 28, 2015

We had another sudden victory playoff today at the immaculately groomed Country Hills GC for today's Tour stop at the northside Calgary layout. Home course clubmates Josh Lumgair and Matthew Tse tied for first after 18 holes with scores of 2-under par 69, forcing them to head back to the 18th hole for a sudden death playoff. Lumgair got tangled up in the fescue left of the fairway, leaving Tse's par-4 the winning score. Another Country Hills player, Chris Horton, was third with a 74 as the host club swept the podium. In the junior girls' division, Rachel Ung of Earl Grey made her journey across the city very worthwhile as she fired an excellent 76, easily outdistancing runner-up Ehrika Poje of Silver Wing, a distant 2nd with a 90. Full results will be on the Tour website by 8 p.m. this evening.

Dodging Raindrops in Canmore

Jul 27, 2015

It drizzled a bit during pre-round warmups and it flat out poured about a half hour after the kids got off the course, but in between, the weather held off to allow another very successful Canmore Junior Open. Kai Iguchi of Banff fired a 1-under par 70 to capture the junior boys' title and 12-year-old Kaitlyn Wingnean of the Derrick earned her second Tour win this month with an 81, as 64 juniors from as far away as Edmonton and Lacombe enjoyed superb hospitality and a fine golf course today in Canmore. Full results will be on the website by 7:30 p.m. this evening. 7:24 p.m. - Results now online! Made it with 6 minutes to spare. Whew!

Canmore Nearly Full!

Jul 25, 2015

Saturday, July 25th. 11:15 a.m. - I just got off the phone with Head Pro Rick Eichele at Canmore. He has less than 6 spots still open for Monday's event, so call NOW if you want to get in. It would be criminal to miss this tournament if you leave it too long to phone.

Srixon Order of Merit Updated Through Olds

Jul 25, 2015

The Srixon Order of Merit standings have now been updated to include last week's two events in Turner Valley and Carstairs. The Olds tournament on Wednesday was cancelled due to inclement weather. At almost the halfway mark of the 2015 season, all three boys' divisions are being led by juniors from Lacombe! Jeremy Rietze is paving the way in the flight for boys born in 1996-98, Chase Broderson is out front in the flight for boys born in 1999/2000, and Brady McKinlay took over first place this week in the flight for boys born in 2001 and later. Compliments to Head Professional Kevin Broderson and his staff in Lacombe for their excellent junior program. In the junior girls division, 2014 Order of Merit winner Clare McMahon is still in 1st place but several girls are within striking distance with just over half the regular season to go. Check the Order of Merit standings to see the Top Ten in each age group.
