Bookmark and Share

Richmond Hill, Ont. (March 19, 2011) – With March Break upon us, many junior golfers from across Western Canada will be hard at work competing in a double qualifier come next week with the Euro Junior Golf Cup & Lipton Brisk Canada Cup Team West Qualifier set to take place at Northview Golf & Country Club in Surrey, British Columbia.

The double qualifier will run March 21st and 22nd on the challenging Canal layout at Northview Golf & Country Club.  Up for grabs are spots on CJGA Team Canada and a trip to the home of golf St. Andrews, Scotland. Juniors will also be competing for the opportunity to qualify for the 9th annual Lipton Brisk Canada Cup, the only national Ryder Cup style junior event in Canada.  
 
On top of the international opportunities, juniors competing at Northview will also be able to earn valuable points on Golf Canada’s CN Future Links National Junior Order of Merit. The CN Future Links National Junior Order of Merit is used to identify and give recognition to top performing junior golfers across Canada who have achieved success in the golf season. For more information on the CN Future Links Order of Merit please click here.
 
Headlining the Boys 15-19 division is last week’s season opener champion, Kevin Ko of Coquitlam, BC.  Ko, who dismantled the field at Hazelmere fired a 5 under par 67 on his final round of the tournament.  Not to be out done will be a pair of former CJGA Team Canada members on last year’s Euro Junior Golf Cup team, Sean Gill and Thomas Jefferies-Harrison both from Vancouver, BC.
 
Expect a crowded leader board going into the final round in the Girls division as last week’s champion, Alix Kong of West Vancouver, BC hopes to continue her winning ways as she heads for a second straight divisional crown.  Back from the warm breeze of south Florida, Jamie Oleksiew of Surrey, BC will look to start off her 2011 tournament season with a win. Also in the mix will be Megan Osland of Kelowna, BC as she prepares for the up and coming CJGA Junior Worlds Qualifier at University Golf Club.
 
Jordan Lu of Vancouver, BC also found the winners circle at last week’s CJGA Junior Tour event and will look to hold off an impressive field in the Boys 14 & Under division. Lu, who credited his Hazelmere win to his strong iron play will face previous CJGA Junior Tour champions in Donald Qui, of Surrey, BC and Isaac Chen, of Richmond, BC. 
 
The tournament will get under way at 10:00AM each day. Spectators are encouraged to attend.
