Harrison and Wingnean Battle the Weather in Camrose

Jul 16, 2015

I suppose this result was fairly predictable! Two weeks ago, Andrew Harrison of the host Camrose GC crushed the competition in the Alberta Golf Junior Boys Championship at Henderson Lake in Lethbridge, finishing 9-under par for 72 holes and a mere 13 shots ahead of his nearest competitor. So when Andrew dropped by today on the 5th anniversary of his first Tour win at age 13 when he shot 71 in this event, in horse racing terms, he paid $2.10, $2.10, and $2.10. Andrew's 2-under par 68 was three shots clear of runner-up Nick Vandermey of the Links at Spruce Grove. We had a nice turnout of ten junior girls on hand today, including some very promising fresh faces. Kaitlyn Wingnean of the Derrick bagged her first Tour win with a nifty 85 ( about one stroke per pound of her body weight), no easy task in the cool, windy conditions. Alyshia Suleman of the Royal Mayfair was two strokes in the rear view mirror with an 87. Full results will be on the website by 8:30 p.m. this evening.

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.

On A Clare Day....

Jul 15, 2015

No disrespect to the junior boys on hand today at Montgomery Glen GC in Wetaskiwin, but with a season-high 11 junior girls on hand for today's Tour event, it seemed only fitting to give the girls top billing. Clare McMahon of Balmoral GC in Red Deer, the 2014 Srixon Order of Merit winner, is starting to round into form with her second win in two weeks, firing a fine 81 today at Montgomery Glen. Sydney Scraba of Canyon Meadows was three shots back in 2nd, with Kennedy Turcotte of High Prairie in 3rd with an 86. In the junior boys' division, Justin Berget of Stony Plain fired what he described as a "boring" 1-over par 73 to take down his first Tour win this season. Logan Hill of Red Deer was two shots back on 75. Full results from today's event will be on the website by 8:30 p.m.

Tyler Saunders Quailfies for the U.S. Amateur

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!

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.
