Central Alberta golfers compete for qualifying points to go to nationals

There are two stops left in the Alberta tour

Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s (MJT) three-day tournament in Sundre had plenty of central Alberta golfers hit the links.

From Aug. 15-17 107 golfers took part in the MJT’s Edge School Summer Classic at the Coyote Creek Golf Club. If the participants did well they would earn points to qualify for the MJT National Championship in Orlando this November.

In the U15 girl’s division, Rocky Mountain House’s Saylar May finished in third place just four strokes behind the leader. During the three days of golf, she shot 77, 79, and 80.

Red Deer’s Bennett Love finished in second place in the peewee boys division shooting 76, 72, and 78. Innisfail’s Brae Rogalczyk also came in second place in the bantam boys division after shooting 69, 73, and 71, Rogalczyk finished just one stroke behind Calgary’s Tyler Kidd.

There are only two more stops on the MJT Alberta 2022 circuit with the next stop in Sylvan Lake on Sept. 3-4 at Meadowlands Golf Club.
