Ajax, Ont. (May 1, 2011) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) concluded the final round of the Nike Golf Junior Series/ Stephen Ames Cup Qualifier today at Deer Creek Golf Club in Ajax, Ont. Golfers battled through tough course conditions Sunday after near-perfect weather started the tournament yesterday afternoon.

Brendan Seys of Port Lambton, Ont. led wire-to-wire to capture the title in the Boys 14 & Under division. He played consistent golf both rounds, firing a 77 this afternoon for a 153 (+13) total. Seys had two birdies on the day, finishing the front nine even-par 35. “Putting and driving were my strengths this weekend,” he says. “On number 7, I came up 15-feet short on the green and left myself a difficult putt. I was able to sink that for par and it gave me confidence with my putter throughout the rest of the round.” Sam McNulty of Port Perry, Ont. finished second, carding a 160 (+20) two-day total. Christian Poirier of Mississauga, Ont. finished third, only two-shots behind McNulty.
Russell Bowie of Mississauga, Ont. had the two best rounds of the tournament winning the Boys 15-19 championship in his first CJGA tournament. He played steady this afternoon, shooting a 5-over-par 75 for a 145 (+5) total. “The course was pretty good overall this weekend,” he says. “Yesterday was my first round of the year and I was pleased with how I performed. I didn’t miss the fairway all day which gave me a good shot at almost every hole. The course was punishing in the middle but I was able to play well.” There was a three-way tie for second with Sam Brown of Scarborough, Ont., Andrew Staniland of Newmarket, Ont. and Michael Fama of Maple, Ont all finishing with a 162 (+22) score.
Alyssa Getty of Leamington, Ont. took home her second championship of the year in the Girls 15-19 division. She carded two-straight birdies on 12 and 13 to shoot an even-par 35 on the back nine. Adding her 75 to yesterday’s score, Getty finished with a 153 (+13) total. “I didn’t feel like I performed my best today, but I’m happy with the win,” she says. “My driving was the best part of my game. I was consistent with it and was able to stay out of trouble. The course layout was difficult but I gutted it out for the win.” Madelyn Piccininni of Toronto finished second while Claire O’Neil of Etobicoke, Ont. ended the tournament in third place.
