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.

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.
