Bookmark and Share

Richmond Hill, Ont. (May 17, 2011) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) would like to congratulate CJGA players Wilson Bateman of Spruce Grove, Alta. and Jisoo Keel of Coquitlam, B.C. for capturing titles in their respective divisions at the CN Future Links Pacific Championship. In the Junior Boys division, Bateman took the victory after 36 holes of play at Arbutus Ridge Golf Club in Cobble Hill, B.C. with a two-day score of 3-under par, while Keel took the Junior Girls division title with an overall score of 1-under. Due to heavy rainfall on Sunday, Golf Canada tournament officials decided to cancel the final round of the tournament and crown Bateman and Keel champions.

 
In 2007, Bateman posted an impressive record placing first in all four of the CJGA Alberta events that he competed in. Bateman is also a past participant at such major international events as the Triangular International Matches (South Africa), Euro Junior Golf Cup (Scotland), and Junior World Golf Championships (San Diego).
 
In Keel’s 2009 CJGA season, she posted an amazing victory at a Stephen Ames Cup qualifier which led to her participation on CJGA Team Canada at the Stephen Ames Cup later that year. Keel also competed at the Junior World Golf Championships in 2010.
 
With their victories at the CN Future Links Pacific Championship, both of these players have been awarded exemptions to important upcoming events. Bateman earned an exemption to the 2011 Canadian Junior Boys Championship happening August 1-5 at Morgan Creek Golf Course in South Surrey, B.C. Keel was awarded an exemption to the 2011 Royale Cup Canadian Junior Girls Championship, taking place August 1-5 at Q Golf Club in Richmond, B.C.
 
The CJGA is proud to have watched Bateman and Keel develop their skill and character over the years and would like to wish these individuals the best of luck at their respective upcoming championship events.
