Moser Low Overall on MJT at Lloydminster
 
Lloydminster, SK (June 5, 2017) - The conditions were ideal and the Lloydminster Golf Club in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan rolled out the red carpet for the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour over the June 3rd and 4th weekend. This event marked the second of five stops on the MJT in the Province and the kids were treated to a fantastic experience by Lloydminster Golf Club including generous prizing and refreshments.

The junior golfers were competing for titles in eight age divisions on Canada's number one played junior golf tour as well as qualifying spots into
both the International Player's Championship (IPC) presented by Miura, to be played at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Alberta this August, and the Nordic Junior Team Matches to held in Finland this Fall.

The Finalists for the IPC exemptions were Naoki Iwasaki, Jayden Dudas, Bradley Moser and Alyshia Suleman; and the short-listed Qualifiers for the Nordic Team matches were Bradley Moser and Jayden Dudas. Details are posted on the MJT website HERE, which also shows winners of the Miura 'Respect the Game' Award, PLYR Long Drive, PLYR Closest-to-the-Pin and Golf Town Performance Awards. See below for highlights of each division champion.

  • MJT Junior Boys 17-18: Bradley Moser, 17, of Saskatoon, SK (76-73=149), was also the low overall champion by an incredible nine-strokes. The best part of Moser's game this weekend was, according to him, "my mental strength and wedges were really good, my putting was also strong."
  • MJT Juvenile Boys 15-16: Jayden Dudas, 14, of Estevan, SK (78-80=158). Dudas, who was playimg up a division, Dudas said, "I feel honored and proud because I'm a lot younger than everyone else." The best part of his game was, "my lag putting was very good and didn't three-putt all day. I feel like this is a way to get a College to see you and get a scholarship."
  • MJT Bantam Boys 13-14: Naoki Iwasaki, 14, of Edmonton, AB (75-78=153). Iwasaki posted steady rounds and took home the Bantam Boys Division by eight strokes over Cort Tunall, 13, of Kindersley, SK. Iwasaki was asked how the win felt, and said, "I came here to win, and that's what I did. I feel good about it. It definitely wasn't my best tournament but I'll take it."
  • MJT Peewee Boys 11-12: Colin Pasitney, 12, of St. Paul, AB (88-78=166). When asked how the win felt, Pasitney said, "I feel like this win boosted my confidence for the next tournament. I was great at keeping the ball out of trouble."
  • MJT Girls 15-18: Alyshia Suleman, 17, of Sherwood Park, AB (90-90=180). Suleman was asked how she felt about getting for her first MJT Title: "I had a really good time this weekend playing with a great bunch of girls. It was nice to get my first win on the MJT. I still have a lot of work to do on my game, and I'm looking forward to getting better each week."
  • MJT Girls U15: Sarah Grieve, 14, of Saskatoon, SK (97-92=189). Grieve played consistent golf over the two rounds and took home the title in the U15 Girls Division. She also captured the PLYR Long Drive and the Golf Town Performance awards this weekend.
