Two more first-time Tour winners were the order of the daythis morning at the 34th annual Kevin Hipple Memorial Junior Open at the immaculately groomed Pinebrook GCC in southwest Calgary. Zach Grant, 17, of the host club fired a steady 3-over par 74 on his tour of the always slick and sloping greens of his home track. Zach needed every shot as up and coming Christian Hansen, 14, of River's Edge GC in Okotoks, was a single shot back in second with a 75.  Jonathan Vinge,13, also of Pinebrook finished in solo third on 77 on a day where over half the boys' field were youngsters born in 2004 and later. 

Grant and Vinge also punched their tickets to the Tour Championship coming up on August 27th at Wolf Creek Golf Resort with their efforts today.  They  will be joined by Tommy Sluka  of Canmore GCC, whose 79 was tops among the boys born in 2002/2003.  Wild Card Qualfiiers included Carson Rody and Aneesh Kaura, both from Pinebrook, and both with 81s this morning under spectacular Rocky Mountain skies and light breezes.

In the junior girls' flight,Brooke Frerichs of Glencoe fired an 87, ten shots clear of Pinebrook's Jade Carter.   Carter was hardly disappointed, as she  captured the tournament Overall Low Net award which included a spiffy blue blazer ( which might need some alterations to make it fit! LOL)  Frerichs also earned a spot at Wolf Creek in the process.

Next event on Tour is tomorrow afternoon with a 1:30 shotgun start in Carstairs, followed by the Olds Junior Open on Wednesday with a 9 am shotgun start. Spots are still open this evening for both tournaments.
