Deer Valley’s Carey McLean led the way for four Saskatchewan golfers at this past weekend’s Maple Leaf Junior Tour (MJT) stop in Red Deer, Alta.

McLean, 16, placed fourth overall in the 15-18 girl’s age group at the River Bend Golf Course. After firing a 104 in round one, she rebounded with a solid 97 on the second day to finish just off the podium.

In the peewee boy’s category, Cashton Yaremko of Orkney placed third overall. The 11-year-old shot a two-round total of 212.

A pair of Saskatchewan golfers competed in the juvenile boy’s division; Eastend’s Rylan Egland, 15, finished in 22nd with a score of 179. Egland shot 86 on day one and 93 during day two. 15-year-old Pense golfer Charlie Belton placed 28th with a two-day score of 207.

The MJT also held a one-day mini-tour event at River Bend on June 9. Warman’s Dane Giesbrecht was the lone Sask. participant in the field. The 10-year-old placed second in the boy’s 9-10 year-old group with a 73, just four strokes back of Buck Lake, Alta. Golfer Tyler Kidd.

The MJT will make a tour stop in North Battleford on June 16 and 17 as part of the Order of Merit series.
