Richmond Hill, Ont. (June 24, 2011) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) is ready for its next event of the Ontario Junior Linkster Series taking place this Sunday at Deer Run Golf Course in Little Britain, Ont. The CJGA is excited to be returning to this 9-hole Kawartha Lakes-area golf course, which is a proud supporter of junior golf in Ontario. After last weeks’ gripping US Kids World Championship qualifier, juniors should be glad to return to the fun and casual environment expected at Linkster events.  

In the Boys 8 & Under division, a few golfers return from last weeks’ event looking to perform well again. Adam Kalwies and Peter Blazevic of Burlington, Ont. placed second and third, respectively, at the US Kids qualifier. Both of these skilled juniors also have a number of top five finishes. Windsor, Ont. native Shawn Sehra, who has three top four finishes this year, also returns from last week.

 

The Boys 9-10 division includes Connor Pestell of Pickering, Ont. and Zachary Katzenstein from Thornhill, Ont., who both have had three top ten finishes this year. Also competing are Mills Nicholas and Alex Pineo of Lakefield, Ont., and Scott Chui from Markham, Ont.

 

In the Boys 11-13 division, Kelvin Lim from Thornhill, Ont. moves up from the Boys 9-10 group to compete. So far this year, Lim has had two wins and two second place finishes while playing in the younger age group. Lim looks to find out if he is able to handle competition in the older division this weekend. Also competing is Charlie Watson of Toronto, who placed third at his last CJGA event.

 

It should be a close competition in the Girls 9 & Under division between Alyssa DiMarcantonio of Maple, Ont. and Hailey McLaughlin from Markham, Ont. DiMarcantonio placed second at last weeks’ US Kids qualifier, and also has a first and third place finish this season. McLaughlin has an impressive 2011 record of two wins and two second place standings. Kieran Gerow of Brighton, Ont., who has placed in the top four twice this year, also competes.

 

Jennifer Yoon of Oakville, Ont. will be looking for her first win of the season in the Girls 10-13 group. So far, she has placed in the top four at all five of her tournaments. June Gleed of Beaverton, Ont. returns after placing fifth at her last event, and Sarah Cushing from Brockville, Ont. will be competing in her first CJGA event.

 

Tee times begin on Sunday at 10 a.m. Spectators are encouraged to attend.
