Langley golfer Amy Lee won the Girls U15 division at the opening event of the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) at University Golf Club in Vancouver, edging out fellow Langley resident Rose Chen, who finished second.

“I feel proud to win this tournament and confident for the next one,” said Lee, 13, who shot rock-solid rounds of 74-77 (151) to win the title by three strokes.

Chen, 13, shot 77 and 77.

The heavily wait-listed Humber College PGM Classic saw 100 top junior golfers take part from across British Columbia and Alberta.

Due to heavy rain making the course unplayable on the final day, the three-day tournament that started on Saturday, March 12 was shortened to a two-day event.

The non-profit Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour is Canada’s number one-played Junior Golf Tour as well as the only national junior tour run exclusively by PGA of Canada Professionals and the ‘Road to College Golf’ in Canada.
