Our apologies to Jim Mora.  Great YouTube video, kids. Google it.

The Tour wound up a busy three-events-in-three-days week this morning in Olds, coming on the heels of touraments Monday at McKenzie Meadows in Calgary and yesterday 15 miles south of Olds in Carstairs.  For the second day in a row, we had overtime, as three players posted matching scorecards of two-over par 74, forcing a sudden-victory playoff.  This was the first Tour playoff for all three kids, as Nick Rimmer of Edmonton's Derrick GWC, Cole Bergheim of Red Deer GCC and Camrose's Devin Kucy all headed back to the first tee to begin the playoff. They were  followed by many of the other tournament competitors and a host of nervous parents and grandparents watching every stroke.

Bergheim looked poised to perhaps take the title as he was left with a tap-in par on the par-4 first hole at the beautifully condidtioned Olds Central Highlands layout, but Kucy and Rimmer both went clutch, holing 10-foot par putts  to send all three players to the 2nd tee box. On the par-4 dogleg left #2, Rimmer and Kucy were in the right trees off the tee, and had to lay up short of the green, while Bergheim went long and left with his approach, leaving all three players facing lengthy par putts once they reached the green. After Rimmer and Bergheim missed, Kucy went centre cut with his 10-footer, punctuated with a Tour-calibre fist pump!

Kucy had qualifed for the Tour Championship yesterday in Carstairs, but Rimmer and Bergheim joined the field with their play today.  They will be joined by Wild Card qualifiers Mark Janes (78) of Red Deer GCC, Taylen Garlough of Leduc (79), along with  Devin's older brother Mason, Jace Shannon of Forestburg, and Braden O'Grady of the Edmonton Petroleum Club, all of whom posted matching 80s.

Sydney McInnis of the host club snagged the girls' Tour Championship spot up for grabs today with a fine score of 83.

The Tour swings back north next week with a crazy-busy FOUR-tournament week, starting Monday in Whitecourt, followed by Tuesday at Whitetail Crossing in Mundare, Wednesday at Montgomery Glen in Wetaskiwin and winding up a week tomorrow in Camrose.  Spots are open at all four sites and we will post more detailed information on the Tour website tomorrow about each tournament.  If you ARE planning on entering one or more of these excellent Junior Golf tournaments, please do a favor to the local tournament organizers and enter WELL in advance so they can help plan their events more effectively.
