We TOLD them it was a tough golf course!!!

Black Bull Golf Resort, near Ma-Me-Beach, lived up to its reputation this afternoon as arguably the most difficult course on the McLennan Ross Junior Golf Tour, Presented by Crowe MacKay.  We didn't have the biggest field today, but we had a lot of low single digit handicappers on hand with multiple Tour wins, and TWO of them managed to break 80 in nearly perfect scoring conditions.  From the WHITES, Black Bull is over 6,500 yards of narrow fairways, water hazards, thick fescue, and sloping, fast greens.  I can't imagine what the scores would be like if we ever turned the kids loose from the Blacks, where the yardage tops out at over 7,300. Yikes!

When the cards were all turned in, Jarrett Bossert of Belveder and Camrose's Devin Kucy headed back to the treacherous par-4 9th hole for a sudden-victory playoff. Shown here is Bossert's tee shot in the playoff. Yes, it's sideways. No, I dont' know how to fix it. Turn your laptop sideways!

Bossert and Kucy had gone into survival mode out there and turned in scores of 6-over par 79 to earn their spot in the playoff. Chase Bodoano of Broadmoor was a single shot back in solo third with an 80, despite holing out from 50 yards on the par-5 1st hole for an eagle.

Kucy struggled on the hole from the get-go, hitting his tee shot into a lateral water hazard and it spiralled downhill from there.  Bossert made a conservative bogey-5, which was good for his second Tour championship of the month after his win earlier in August at Goose Hummock Golf Resort.  I guess this guy just likes tight golf courses!

Looking at the club's permanent trophy since their Junior Open came onto the Tour is 2006, we saw names like Andrew Harrison (twice), Nick Vandermey (also twice) and Jared Nicholls as former tournament winners at Black Bull. Jarrett is in great company with those competitors!

In the Junior Girls division, we had some of our usual suspects like the Wingnean sisters and Brooke Brezovski, but we were pleasantly surprised to see Jessica Marks of Country Hills tee it up today. Jessica has had a very busy summer as part of Alberta Golf's U-19 Junior Development Team, having competed recently in the Alberta Junior Championship and Canadian Junior Girls Championship, among other events. Jessica was willing to travel up the QEII to Black Bull to earn her way into the field for the upcoming Tour Championship at Wolf Creek, and she qualifed today wtih her runner-up finish (85) to Kaitlyn Wingnean's umpteenth Tour win of the season with a fine 82. 

As this was our last Tour event of the season north of Red Deer, we granted a couple of extra Wild Card spots today, and will likely do the same thing at Nanton next Tuesday. New qualifiers today in addition to Marks were: Jake Willsey, Jack Nessel, Samson Prins and his brother Hayden Prins, Brody Smith, Christian Hansen and Billy Kuchka.  Contratulations to all those competitors.
