For Immediate Release:
Hot off their wins at the East Coast Junior Championships last week, Haley Baker and Gavin Ives are gearing up for the next big Junior event of the 2019 Golf NB Tournament Season presented by Argus Audiology.
After taking the long Canada Day weekend to relax and refresh, Junior, Juvenile, Bantam and Pee Wee players will tee it up at the Hampton Golf Club on July 2 for the 2019 NB Pee Wee and Junior Championships. Hampton Golf Club offers a beautiful par 72 course that is sure to challenge the competitors in all areas of their game, especially when it comes to the course’s unique par 6 sixth hole. Pee Wee players will play in 36 hole format while the 13 thru 18 aged competitors will have the chance to showcase their skills throughout a 54 hole format.
Returning players, Nathan Hogan of Miramichi and Haley Baker of Ashburn, were at the top of the 2018 Junior and Juvenile leaderboards, however, with both being another year older, they will compete solely for their respective Junior titles. Abbey Baker, of Ashburn and sister to Haley, is back to defend her Bantam Girls title while also reaching for the Juvenile Girls crown. 2018 Bantam Boys Champion, Marc Andre Gaudet is also jumping age ranks and moving up to compete in the Juvenile Boys division with hopes of coming out on top again this year. The Pee Wee division will see 2018 Pee Wee Boys Champion Chase Burgess return to defend his title, while the field for Pee Wee Girls is wide open with last year’s Pee Wee Girls Champion Judy Lin not returning to compete this year.
63 excited competitors will come together at the Hampton Golf club for 3 days of great golf to vie for 8 titles. With the looks of the field, this tournament is sure to impress. Good luck to all the players and remember to appreciate all the incredible golf courses our beautiful nation has to offer! Happy Canada Day everyone!
