Richmond Hill, Ont. (August 4, 2011) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) will host the 2011 Mizuno National Golf Championship from August 8 – 11 at Grey Silo Golf Course in Waterloo, Ont. This is the second of two national championships on the CJGA schedule and features over 100 of the top junior golfers from across the country.

The Cut
The field for the Mizuno National Golf Championship will begin with 102 players for the first two rounds of competition. Sixty per cent of the field will move on to play an additional two rounds to decide the overall winner.
 
History
The event originated in 1994 at the Royal Woodbine Golf Club in Toronto, Ont. From there, the national championship has moved to St. Andrews Valley in Aurora, Ont., National Pines in Barrie, Ont. and DiamondBack in Richmond Hill, Ont.  This is the first time the Mizuno National Golf Championship has been played at Grey Silo Golf Course. Memorable performances include those of Brittany Henderson, of Smiths Falls, Ont., who won the Girls Division from 2005 to 2007, and her younger sister Brooke who won the event last year by twenty-six strokes.  The lowest score that has ever been shot during the Mizuno National Golf Championship was recorded in 2004 by Will Mitchell of Whitby, Ont. who shot 71-73-70-72 – 286 (-2).
