No one can ever accuse Chase Broderson of Lacombe of lack of dedication.  Having suffered the disappointment of missing the cut by one stroke at the Golf Canada Canadian Junior Boys Championship going on this week at the Medicine Hat GCC, Broderson wasn't going to let that deter him from showing up this morning to compete in his home town Junior Open.  The Jordan Brand Memorial Junior Open is one of the four remaining charter members of the McLennan Ross Junior Golf Tour going back to our inaugural year in 1996 (Ponoka, Innisfail and Nanton are the others), and we were pleased and honoured to have Jordan Brand's father Bruce on hand this morning to help cheer on the kids and volunteer with the scoring table at the conclusion of play.  Bruce's presence every year in Lacombe at this event helps keep all of us grounded as to what is really important, not only in golf but in life in general.

Broderson didn't make the long trip home (he and his mom left Medicine Hat at 3:30 am) for nothing, as he fired a steady 1-over par 72, good for a 3-shot margin over Broadmoor's Mitch Desjarlais and Chris Otto of the Royal Mayfair.  Chase Bodoano of Broadmoor was solo fourth on 76.  Broderson's round was highlighted by an eagle-3 on the par-5 12th hole, which offset an ugly double bogey on the par-4 4th.  Otto's effort earned him a spot in the field for the Tour Championship coming up later this month just up the QEII from Lacombe on The Old Course at  Wolf Creek GR, which just this week earned recognition from SCORE Golf Magazine as one of Canada's Top 100 courses.  Also nailing down spots in the field for Wolf Creek today were Clay Pedersen (80) of Lacombe from the flight for boys born in 2002/2003, Sebastian Berube (85) from the flight for boys born in 2004 and Later, and Wild Card qualifiers Bailey Butz of Ft. Saskatchewan and Brolin Badger of the Edmonton CC.  Butz and Badger each fired an 83.

In the junior girls' flight, Jenna Sand of Bashaw continued her fine play on Tour this summer, with a 92, well ahead of two younger girls, Saylar Flikinger of Pine Hills and Edmonton CC's Victoria Kruczko.  Flikinger earned her way to Wolf Creek with a 109, 2 shots clear of Kruczko, as Sand is already in the field for the Tour Championship.  

Next up on Tour is the 36-hole Goose Hummock Junior Open, which goes  Thursday and Friday this week.  This event has rapidly become a 'must play' in the Edmonton area due to the fantastic efforts of Goose Hummock Head Professional Mike McEvay.  The tournament features great prizes (no one goes home empty-handed!) , two days of action and the only Horse Race on Tour for the kids on Thursday evening.  


Q = Player qualified for Tour Championship at Wolf Creek GR on August 27

WC = Wild Card qualifier for Tour Championship.

PQ = Player had previously qualified for Tour Championship.

The players listed here are the Top Six and ties in each age group, who thereby earn Titleist Order of Merit ranking points.  This is not the entire field of competitors that was on hand today.
