On May 4 and 5 at the Kildonan Park Golf Course in the Manitoba capital, the Pilot Butte Junior was second in the bantam (under-15) age group with a 36-hole score of 149 after rounds of 78 and 71. The Wascana Country Club member was just three shots off the leader.

Nesbitt placed third at an MJT event in Lethbridge in late April.
