I would like to pretend that each and every golf tournament provides an equally pleasant and stimulating experience for junior golfers, but let's be realistic.  Some tournaments, like rounds of golf, are just better than others. Today's Edmonton Petroleum Club Junior Open was just 'better', in so many ways.

What makes up a superb tournament?  First of all, you need a terrific golf course.  EPGCC was easily the best conditioned course on Tour this summer and that is with no disrespect to the other Tour sites.  The course was soggy in a couple of spots from Saturday's torrential rain and hail storm, but the fairways and greens were flat out perfect.  On-site event organization is important.  The club had a well-oiled pre-tournament registration, complimentary fresh fruit and muffins before the kids ever hit a shot this morning, and first tee giveaways from our Presenting Sponsor, Crowe MacKay. You need lots of players, lots of GOOD players, and today's event delivered in spades.  The tournament was chock full of low-single digit handicappers with numerous Tour wins under their collective belts.  We had several top Alberta Golf rules officials on the course to help keep things moving smoothly and to help some players learn some rules interpretations along the way.  Meaty barbecued burgers and more fresh fruit helped satisfy the kids' hunger pangs after their rounds.  In short, this was a terrific tournament that only helped solidify the EPC's Junior Open as one of the 'must play' events on the Tour schedule.

Oh right,,we had some golf played today, too!  Ethan de Graaf of the Royal Mayfair has had an admitedly up-and-down summer, mixing in some great golf with what he would freely admit was some of his more erratic play in the last couple of years.  de Graaf, a member of Alberta Golf's U-19 Junior Development Squad, was firing on all cylinders today, as he cruised around the Pete Club's pristine fairways with a  pretty much stress-free, 3-birdie, no bogey 69, five shots better than one of his top Edmonton rivals, Kaiden Nicholson of the Edmonton CC.  Brandon Fedoruk of St. Paul was in solo third with a 76. 

With just over three weeks remaining until the Tour Championship at Wolf Creek, spots in the field at "The Wolf" are more coveted than ever. We had a lots of players in the field who had previously qualified elsewhere on the Tour this summer, but we had several klds punch their tickets for Wolf Creek this morning as well, including runner-up Nicholson.  Also earning spots were Kyle Racich of Sturgeon Valley, whose 90 might seem a high score to earn a qualifying spot, but he was in the right place at the right time, as the four players ahead of him in the flight for boys born in 2001/02 were already in the field for Wolf Creek.  Timing is everything!

Colin Pasitney of St. Paul shot an 83 out of the flight for boys born in 2003 and later, and Wild Card spots went to Colin's two older brothers, Jeremy (78), and Justin (81).  An additional Wild Card qualifier was Brock Chelle of the Derrick, who got in with a 78 of his own.

In the Junior Girls' division, we had a season-high 9 girls on hand, and Kaitlyn Wingnean of the Derrick GWC continued her strong form with a nifty 77, four shots clear of Brooke Brezovski of Stugreon Valley.  Brezovski followed up her win over the weekend at the Sturgeon Valley Ladies Club Championship with another strong Tour finish this morning.  Two qualifying spots for Wolf Creek were up for grabs  and they went to Kaitlyn's younger sister Alexa, along with Danielle Stannard of the Highlands.  (Danielle, you got away today before I could let you know you qualified for Wolf Creek,,,please email me,,,Dunc)

Kaitlyn Wingnean and Ethan de Graaf are shown here with their trophies in the clubhouse at the Petroleum Club after the tournament today.
