The Red Deer product was crowned champion at his second consecutive Maple Leaf Junior Golf Mini Tour at McKenzie Meadows Golf Club in Calgary on Sunday.
Love, 8, shot 81 to beat Owen Witherden, 8, of Consort. Through nine holes, Witherden held a six-shot lead. Love clawed back and was even with Witherden heading to 18. On the final hole, Love made a clutch par to win the title.
