Cole Ruelling (R) , accepts the Montgomery Glen Junior Open championship trophy this afternoon from Assistant Professional Austin Breure.  Ruelling's win was his second in two days on the Tour this week, coming on the heels of his win yesterday at Whitetail Crossing GC in Mundare. Please note the fantastic 'old school' trophy the club has for their Junior Open champion.  The trophy was first awarded in 1952!!

Ruelling continued his solid play this week with another steady round, with two birdies offset by a trio of bogies. He edged one of his playing partners, Chase Bodoano of Broadmoor, by a single shot as the two players went toe-to-toe all round.  At one point this morning, we were wondering if we would even get ON the golf course as we faced an 8 a.m. lightning and rain storm that delayed the start of play by an hour.  But full marks to the kids who stuck it out waiting for play to commence, as the clouds gave way to brilliant sunshine with only the hint of a breeze. Greg Gurba of Broadmoor and Jace Shannon of Forestburg tied for third on 76, with Gurba earning his way into the field at Wolf Creek GR with his effort.  The other top finishers today had previously qualified for the Tour Championship.

Also earning spots for Wolf Creek today were Colby Halwa (82) of Black Bull from the flight for players born in 2002 / 2003, Brody Smith of Edmonton CC (89) from the flight for boys born in 2004 and later, and Wild Card qualifiers Noah Hackett (78) of Ponoka, Jose Lopez-Peterson (83) of Jagare Ridge and Ponoka's Liam McKeen (84).

We had a Tour first today in the junior girls division, featuring a season-high total of ten girls on hand.  It was nice to see some of the best junior girls in Alberta mixing it up with some newcomers to tournament competition.  That's what this Tour is all about!  What was unprecedented was Kaitlyn Wingnean of the powerhouse Derrick Golf & Winter Club's junior program teeing it up from the Blue Tees today as "one of the boys", instead of competing from the red tees with the other junior girls.  Wingnean, who has captured the last three years of the Titleist Junior Girls Order of Merit, finished third two weeks ago in the Alberta Golf Junior Girls Championship at Coyote Creek GR in Sundre with a 54-hole total of 2-over par 215.  So let's be honest, it wasn't going to be much of a challenge for Kaitlyn today to tee it up from the reds, so full marks to this young lady for wanting to test her game at the 6,100 yard level going head-up with the boys.  Her score of 84 matched the scores of her sister Alexa and Jenna Sand of Bashaw, but Kaitlyn asked that her score be considered in the same flight as the boys, leaving the other two players to cash in the Junior Girls division.  All three of the girls were awarded spots in the field for the Tour Championship.

Next stop on Tour is tomorrow morning in Camrose with a 9 a.m. shotgun start, completing a busy three-events-in-three-days swing around the Edmonton area. 

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

WC = Wild Card qualifier for Tour Championship

PQ = Player had previously qualified for Tour Championship

* = Kaitlyn Wingnean competed from the Blue Tees today and competed with the junior boys, but was awarded a spot in the Tour Championship as well.  She did not share in the junior girls' prize fund.

The players listed here are the Top Six and ties in each age group, who thereby earned Titleist Order of Merit ranking points.  This was not a full listing of every competitor today.
