Saskatoon’s Aricin Franklin has been competing on the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) for a couple years but the 13-year-old’s golf highlight may have just occurred.

Franklin hit a hole-in-one on hole seven at the MJT Ford Series at Stony Plain on June 19. Franklin’s first ace allowed him to get back to even-par on the day and vaulted him to a second-place finish in the bantam boys age division at the event with a stellar score of 4-over par.

Franklin joined Golf Saskatchewan’s Clark Stork to discuss his start in golf, playing competitively and his short and long-term goals.
