altALTON, Ontario — The Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour's two-day tournament at Osprey Valley Golf Course in Alton, ON, last weekend played out in the wet and cold on August 16th, which fortunately turned on August 17th with weather perfect for great scoring conditions.

"Osprey was in fantastic shape and proved to be a good challenge for all of our players. We had some great battles in each of the four divisions through the rain and wind, and then on day two only Jack Quirke was able to maintain his lead in the Junior Boys 17-19 and win," said Mike Skimson, MJT Tournament Director. "All the other winners came from behind."
