Vernon nine-year-old Ryan Vest shot 84-80-164 to finish third in Kissimmee, Fla.

Vernon nine-year-old Ryan Vest shot 84-80-164 to finish third in under 12 Pee Wee Division at the Maple Leaf Tour Boston Pizza National Golf Championship last weekend in Kissimmee, Fla.

PGA Tour star Retief Goosen, winner of multiple majors,  graciously presented the six divisional national MJT Champions with their custom-fit TaylorMade M1 driver in an exciting ending to a very successful final event on Canada’s No. 1 played junior golf tour .

The championships, presented by TaylorMade-adidas Golf, were held at The Reunion Resort and Golf Club. College coaches were in attendance scouting players.

Phenomenal scoring from 12-year old Brycen Ko of Richmond guaranteed him the MJT Peewee Boys National Champion’s trophy after he fired rounds of 70-70-140 (-4) to walk away with an 18- shot victory.

Vernon’s Braeden Cooper, 15, finished in a three-way share of 20th spot in the Juvenile category (under 16) at 85-82-167.

Roman Timmerman, 16, of Saskatoon, took the Juvenile title at 71-71-142 (-2) on the superbly conditioned Watson Golf Course which will host sectional qualifying for the Champions Tour in two weeks.
