(Guest writer) The Jamieson Junior Tour opened the season with an event at Seven Lakes Golf Club. The players enjoyed a beautifully groomed course but had to battle the persistent threat of thunderstorms. A weather delay reduced the event to nine holes.
In the Junior boys division (13-18 years old) Johnny Ewing of Essex Golf Club earned his first career win with a 2 under 34. At 15 years of age Johnny is one of the youngest players to win a Jamieson event. One stroke back was Konner McDermott from Willow Ridge with a 35 followed by Jax Sisson (Pointe West) with an even par 36.
Veteran Karolyn Rombouts of Maple City took the junior girls crown with a 39 beating both Kyla Charlebois (Pointe West) and Kennedy Fremlin (Essex) by a single stroke.
In the Collegiate Men division Aidan Webster representing Willow Ridge carded a 3 under 32 on the Seven Lakes back nine to claim the title. Alek Mauro (Essex) and Robert McVinnie tied for second with one under 34’s.
Next tour stop is Monday, July 12th at Willow Ridge in Blenheim.
