Bookmark and Share

Richmond Hill, Ont. (May 4, 2011) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) is excited for Alberta’s first junior event of the season, Big Chief Beef Jerky Alberta Junior, this Saturday May 7 and Sunday May 8 at Carstairs Golf Course in Carstairs, Alta. This is the third consecutive year that Carstairs GC has hosted the event, which also acts as a national qualifier for the Lipton Brisk Canada Cup, a national Ryder Cup format event taking place in Niagara Falls, Ont. in July.  

With a full roster ready to get the tournament season underway, there will be some fierce competition in each of the age divisions as the strong field of juniors will be challenging for a spot on the Lipton Brisk Canada Cup Team West squad.
Several CJGA veterans will be competing from the Boys 14 & Under division this weekend. Among the players is Patrick Murphy from Crossfield, Alta., who won last years Alberta region Canada Cup Qualifier, and is hoping to capture a spot on Team West again. Another up-and-comer is Brett Pasula from Red Deer, Alta., who came in fifth at this event in 2010 with a great first round score of 3-over par.
The Boys 15-19 division will also be a fierce competition featuring a handful of past members of CJGA Team Canada including Riley Fleming from Airdrie, Alta., Derek Rucki from Chestermere, Alta., Jesse Teron of Red Deer, Alta., and Matt Williams from Calgary. Fleming and Rucki both participated in the prestigious Canadian International Junior Challenge last year, placing 10th and 12th respectively, while Williams finished second in this same Canada Cup Qualifier last year for the younger division. Williams was also a member of the 2010 Canadian Stephen Ames Cup team that competed in Trinidad. Expect to see a close contest from this group of players to gain a spot on Team West for this year.
From the Girls 11-19 division, look out for Sabrine Garrison of Calgary, who placed first in one of last years’ Stephen Ames Cup qualifiers. This group features a number of new faces to the CJGA including Erin Martens of Edmonton and Devon Spriddle from Lethbridge, Alta., which should make for an interesting season in Alberta.
Tee times commence both days at 1:30 p.m.
