CN Future Links Western Championship GIBBONS, Alberta (Jason St. Jacques/Golf Canada) — The third and final round came down to a playoff for the Junior Boys at Goose Hummock Golf Course in Gibbons, Alta., with Jason Martens emerging as the 2015 CN Future Links Western champion. Kenna Hughes held firm on her one-stroke, second-round lead to be crowned the Junior Girls champion.

Martens of Edmonton was forced into a playoff after Brendan MacDougall of Calgary finished with back-to-back birdies. The competitors came away from the first extra hole with a birdie apiece; Martens claimed the championship by making par on the second playoff while MacDougall registered a bogey.

The 18-year-old Martens entered the final round one stroke off the lead. The 2015 Alberta Junior Championship runner-up completed the round with three birdies to shoot 1-over 72 and end the tournament at 5-over-par 218.

Maddie SzerykUNION, Ontario (Golf Association of Ontario) — In a week that had a little bit of everything from unpredictable weather, to penalty strokes to the round-three leaders, things finally came to a conclusion at the Golf Association of Ontario’s (GAO) Investors Group Women’s Amateur at the St. Thomas Golf & Country Club, the 100th anniversary of the event.

Heading into the final round, Orangeville’s Brittany Marchand held a two-shot lead. However, it would be a lights-out performance by Maddie Szeryk that would be the final-round story as she shot a four-under (68) to overcome the deficit and hoist the Marlene Stewart-Streit Trophy.
