Xstrata Provincial Junior Tournament a Great Success
Todd Eckstein, who is the son of Tim And Sue Eckstein, plays his summer golf here at the Gowan Brae Golf and Country Club won the boys event by four strokes. Todd was three over for the three rounds at a 219 total. Todd is an American citizen and although he can win the NB Junior as a non NB resident he is not eligible for the team competition.
Jillian Ferguson finished the girls section in third place after firing a brilliant 74. This was the first time Jillian has had a score below 80. She was 38 on the front and 36 on the back. This also means Jillian will represent New Brunswick on the girls provincial team. Well done Jillian.
Also making the Atlantic team for the boys were Danek Hadley and Jonathan Carroll. Molly McDermaid also made the Atlantic girls team.
Congratulations to all the participants and a special thanks to Tournament Chairman Scott Ferguson and all the volunteers for a fantastic job of hosting this event.
Finally, a big thanks to Greg Ashe and Xstrata Zinc for sponsoring this event. Your contribution enabled Gowan Brae to make this event a first class event for all the young participants and golf officials.
