Jones, Ferrier and Hernandez Finish Season on High Note

Richmond Hill, Ont. (September 26, 2011) The weather conditions could not have been better over the weekend as junior golfers took to the challenging Cherry Downs Golf & Country Club for the Ontario Fall Series Finale, presented by Baka Communications for the last event on the 2011 CJGA schedule.  As juniors looked to finish off the season on a positive note, the Boys 14 & Under division went extra holes as Austin Jones of Oakville, Ont. defeated Joey Hetherman of Burlington, Ont. on the first playoff hole to capture his second fall series divisional crown in three weeks.

Entering the final round two strokes behind Jones,  Hetherman was not about to let him go unchallenged as he had four birdies on the front nine to head to the back tied for the lead. Jones was able to keep himself composed playing solid golf and retake the lead before a three stroke swing on the 16th hole after he carded a double bogey and Hetherman a birdie. Jones recaptured the lead on 17 and finished the round with a 77 (+6) while Hetherman carded a 75 (+4) to finish in a tie. On the first playoff hole, Jones seemed calm and captured the division title with a par to finish a very successful 2011 on top. Hetherman also had a very successful 2011 campaign with three divisional titles and a runner-up finish. Connor Doucette of Waterloo, Ont. moved his way up the leader board on Sunday to finish in third place alone after a round of 80 (+9), his third top 3 finish of the season.
In the Boys 15-19, Branson Ferrier of Barrie, Ont. entered the final round in a four way tie for the lead. After capturing the divisional title the previous week, Ferrier was looking for back-to-back victories and did just that with solid and consistent play in the final round. Closing with a 75 (+4), Ferrier gave himself some breathing room heading down the stretch and finished with a four stroke victory. Ferrier also captured low overall champion in the season finale after narrowly missing out on the title last week. Cole Sadlier of Norwood, Ont. had his second consecutive runner-up finish to Ferrier after he closed with a 79 (+8), four shots of the pace. John Kim of Scarborough, Ont. finished in third place in the division after two consecutive rounds of 80 (+9).
In the Girls division, Claire Hernandez entered the final round with a share of the lead after she opened the tournament with a round of 79 (+7), along with 10 year old Monet Chun of Toronto. Hernandez’s experience and skill proved to be too much for the rest of the girls field as she closed her 2011 campaign with a final round 78 (+6) to take home the division title by ten strokes. Selena Costabile of Thornhill, Ont. was able to shoot her way up to finish runner-up and her sixth top three finish on the junior tour in 2011. Chun held on to third place just two strokes behind Costabile.
