TJ Baker used his knowledge of the Waskesiu Golf Course to post the low round during qualifying for the Pepsi Junior Lobstick.

Baker shot an even 72, two strokes better than Saskatoon’s Josh Nagy. Tian Rask fired a 4-over, 74 to place third, Bradley Moser finished in fourth place at plus-5. Colby Friedrich rounded out the top five at 6-over par.

The tournament, started in 1956, is formatted in a way to group players based on their skill level. Flights of 16 players are constructed based on Monday’s qualifying scores. The next three days of the tournament are match play, if a player loses his match on Tuesday they will be relegated to the consolation side of their flight. If a player on the consolation side falls to their opponent on Wednesday, they are eliminated. The tournament champion will be crowned on Friday.

64 players are in the field this year. You can see the results from the qualifying round here.
