Langley golfer Rose Chen wins at Cultus Lake during heat wave

Player went four additional playoff holes

Soaring temperatures on Sunday, June 27, led organizers of the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour at the MJT Mini Tour at Cultus Lake Golf Club to trim the 18-hole competition to nine.

In the 41 degree heat, golfers between the ages of six and twelve competed for titles in six divisions.

Langley’s Rose Chen, 12, however, ended up playing more than nine.

After Chen and Yeeun Kwon of Vancouver finished tied with a score of 34 (+2), four extra playoff holes were required for Chen to claim victory.

“I had a lot of fun playing with Yeeun in the playoff,” commented Chen.
