Local Knowledge Pays Dividends in Canmore
Jul 25, 2011
Having good course knowledge of your home track is never a disadvantage in a tournament, and play today in Canmore certainly showed that to be true. Alex Cartwright and Laura Ferreira, both playing out of the Canmore Golf and Curling Club, each won their respective Junior Boys and Junior Girls titles in the Canmore Junior Open. Cartwright fired a fine 4-under par 67 but still had to go to a sudden victory playoff with Cam Hill of Country Hills, but he prevailed on the first extra hole. Ferreira had a slightly easier time as her 75 was good for a 7-shot margin over Mandy Wong of Country Hills. Full results will be on the website by 8:30 p.m. this evening. ----8:29 p.m. I made it with a minute to spare!!!
