Logan Graf to play in PGA Tour Canada tournament after earning a spot

Graf will play in ATB Classic on Thursday

Sylvan Lake’s Logan Graf has earned himself a spot on the PGA Tour Canada after winning the Maple Leaf Junior Tour (MJT) Future Stars Invitational last weekend in Edmonton.

Playing at the Edmonton Petroleum Golf & Country Club the 18-year-old won the two-day tournament shooting 72-70.

“This is a really exciting event for junior golf here in Canada that brings a unique opportunity,” said Graf in a media release. “I was fortunate enough to have my game come together this week and am looking forward to competing in the ATB Classic.”

He and 17 other top junior players all had the opportunity to earn an exemption into the PGA Canada tournament but only one would advance.

Graf will now get to compete in the ATB Classic at the Edmonton Petroleum Golf & Country Club from June 16 to 19.

He is a member of the Red Deer Golf and Country Club and began golfing at the age of five playing in his first tournament five years later. He signed in the fall of 2021 to play NCAA Division 1 golf at Eastern Michigan University and was named 2021 MJT Player of the Year.

Red Deer’s Cole Bergheim also took part finishing tied for sixth place shooting 77-75.
