Bates Leads At Black Bear

Sunny skies and brisk temperatures greeted a talented field of junior golfers on Saturday,May 7th, at the Black Bear Ridge Golf Club in Belleville, ON.  All juniors are vying for a spot in this year’s East Aurora International Junior Maters taking place in East Aurora, NY in early July.  As expected the Black Bear Ridge Golf Club posed a great challenge to many of the players but others were able to tame the beast.

In the Boys 15-19 division Mississauga, ON native Owen Bates was able to achieve red numbers on his back nine tallying a first round total of 73 (+1).  Nipping at the heels of Bates is Clayton Presant of Kingston, ON shooting a 75 (+3) on the day.  Behind Presant is Drew Nesbitt of Horseshoe Valley, ON and Ryan Turner of Stitsville, ON both shooting first rounds of 77.

In the Boys 14 and Under division CJGA Team Canada member Carter Simon of Sutton West, ON opened with a first round 75 (+3) to take a 2 shot lead over Kyle MacDonald of Oakville, ON who tallied a first round score of 77 (+5).  Austin Jones, also from Oakville, ON is not far behind with an opening round score of 78 (+6).  You can expect a heated race to the finish in this division as MacDonald is looking to pick up his second victory of the season.

Today is sure to be an exciting day as the top 3 boys aged 15-18 and the top 14 year old boy will write their tickets to the East Aurora International Junior Masters.  Second round action continued today at 7:30 at the Black Bear Ridge Golf Club, spectators are encouraged to attend!
