Last year, we went the entire 24-tournament regular season on the McLennan Ross Junior Golf Tour, Presented by Crowe MacKay, without needing a sudden-victory playoff to decide a champion.  THIS year, playoffs are becoming as common as long hair at Woodstock. ( Get your parents to explain that to you, kids!)  For the third time in the last four Tour events, we needed overtime to decide a winner, and today, TRIPLE overtime!  Sikander Kaleka of Stony Plain and Austin Noskiye from The Links at Spruce Grove had tied in the 18 holes of regulation play with excellent scores of 1-under 71 over the undulating fescue-lined fairways at Whitetail Crossing GC in Mundare. Brandon Fedoruk of St. Paul was in solo third on 74. 

In the playoff, both players went over the back of the playoff hole, the par-4 18th, and eventually tied with double bogeys. On their second trip down 18, both made routine pars.  On their third attempt, Noskiye made par, but it was far from routine, as both players found the waste bunker off the tee, and Noskiye ended up stuffing a wedge to about two feet for his par after being forced to chip sideways out of the waste area. When Kaleka couldn't match the par, today's title went to Noskiye.  Most of the 40 juniors on hand today had made their way out to greenside on #18 to watch the playoff, and they were treated to some great drama. 

Noskiye and Kaleka both punched their tickets to the Tour Championship at Wolf Creek Golf Resort by virtue of their play today and will be joined by Erik Bouck of Camrose (80) from the flight for boys born in 2001 and 2002, and the Derrick's William Creaser, born in 2003, who smoothed it around in 80 blows, which looked to me to be about a stroke per pound of body weight!  Wild Card qualifiers were the above mentioned Fedoruk and Kaleka. 

In the Junior Girls division, 11-year-old Jayla Kucy of Camrose played a steady, mature round belying her young age, as her 83 was 12 shots clear of St. Paul's Sophie Pasitney. Kucy joins her two older brothers as Tour Championship qualifiers.

No rest for the weary!  The Tour moves south of Edmonton tomorrow to Montgomery Glen GC in Wetaskiwi for a 9 a.m. shotgun start and winds up a busy week on Thursday in Camrose.  I'm sure many of the players on hand today will be in the field tomorrow as they look to wipe their slates clean from today and earn one of the coveted Tour Championship spots.
