Brady McKinlay to play for MJT Team Canada

Lacombe native Brady McKinlay is lighting it up on the junior golf circuit and earlier this week added another accomplishment to that list.

The 16-year-old was named Wednesday to the Maple Leaf Junior golf Tour Team Canada roster that will take part in the Nordic Junior Team Matches in Finland.

Canada will match up against Finland, Sweden and Estonia in Vierumaki, Finland from Aug. 28 to Sept. 4.

McKinlay was one of four junior golfers from across Canada selected to play in the event.

“This will be an incredible life experience as well as an eye-opener for the Canadian players,” said Trent Matson, MJT National Operations Manager in an MJT press release.

“The Sports Institute of Finland is an excellent facility and this is a unique opportunity to play against very good juniors from three different countries in different conditions.”

In the juvenile boys age category McKinlay currently sits second in points with 705, but the lowest stroke average of 72.33.

Along with 10-stroke victory at the Cottonwood Golf and Country Club in early June, McKinlay was also named to the Alberta Golf Developmental team. He is one of 10 golfers selected from the northern region for the team.
