Richmond Hill, Ont. (July 8, 2011) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) is continuing the Ontario Junior Linkster Series next week at Innisfil Creek Golf Course in Innisfil, Ont. The event, taking place on July 13, is the tenth tournament of the season and golfers can expect another fun day of golf. The Linkster Tour programs provide a foundation for establishing a future in the game and teach valuable life skills along the way through on-course management and etiquette.

The Boys 11-13 division features several players who could pick up their first victory of the season. Erich Phang-Lyn of Richmond Hill, Ont. finished T3 this week at Whispering Ridge and should contend for the top spot. Kyle Fancy of Hillsburgh, Ont. posted two top-10 finishes this year and should continue playing great golf. Liam Shaw of Mississauga, Ont. had his best result of the season this week in Whitby finishing second. He is steadily improving as the season goes on and is another name to watch on Wednesday.
 
Freddy D’Angelo of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont. seeks his third straight victory in the Boys 9-10 division. He had strong showings in all of his events thus far and will represent CJGA Team Canada at the U.S. Kids World Championship later this summer. Zachery Katzenstein of Thornhill, Ont.  has four top-10 finishes on the year, including a runner-up showing at Deer Run. Eric Byun of Richmond Hill, Ont. finished second in Whitby at his first event of the year with the CJGA and should contend once again for the title.

Peter Blazevic of Burlington, Ont. seeks his second win of the season in the Boys 8 & Under division. After posting great results all year, he pulled it together this week in Whitby to capture his first victory. He carded a birdie on the final hole of the day to win by two strokes. Hometown favourite Christian Leduc finished in the top three in all of his tournaments this year. He finished first at Highland Gate and is looking to regain the magic in front of his family and friends.
 
In the Girls 10-13 division, Jennifer Yoon looks to capture her first victory of the year. She finished second this week at Whispering Ridge and has performed well all year. Emily Chu of Ancaster, Ont. should challenge her for the title after posting her best finish of the season (5) at the same event.
