A full field of 98 young golfers, aged 12 and younger, competed at the MJT Mini Tour at GreenTee Country Club in Langley recently.

Highlights of the May 13 competition included another impressive performance by 11-year-old Jenny Guo, of West Vancouver, who finished the day at two-under par (70) to claim MJT Girls low overall honours, while MJT boys low overall was won by Jackson Wang, 11, of Surrey, after he fired a sizzling 68 (-4).

Wang’s five birdie performance on the back nine sealed the deal in an impressive comeback as he was down by one at the turn.
