The Girls dominate at the 2018 TaylorMade Pro/Jr Championship


UXBRIDGE, ON - The PGA of Canada - Ontario Zone held their annual Pro/Jr Championship on Tuesday at Wooden Sticks sponsored by TaylorMade and in the true nature of the event, the Juniors were spoiled by both TaylorMade who generously contributed tee gifts and prizing and Wooden Sticks who's wonderful property is always a treat to come and play.
The TaylorMade Pro/Jr Championship is divided into two divisions, gross and net, and juniors (18 and under) from all skill levels compete as a team with their PGA of Ontario Professional in a round of Best Ball.  
Three teams finished in dramatic fashion carding a gross score of 4-under 68. The tied teams went back to the 10th hole where they all played the hole once and after still being tied went to the 150 yard marker where Ava Koukofikas of Meadowbrook sealed the deal to win the playoff. 
"This event is one of my favorites on the schedule. It allows us as Professionals to play with a Junior member in some friendly competition. With the two divisions (gross & net) you can bring players of all levels to compete against each other. Ava and I played well together. She is an amazing golfer and wasn't intimidated by the boys in the playoff. It was great to see her hit the shot closest to the flag in the shootout for the win. I couldn't be happier for her in that situation. I can't wait till next year to play with Ava again and try to defend the title" said Sheldon Friske.
Graham Castanheiro has been a longtime supporter of the Pro Junior at Wooden Sticks won the net side free and clear with his junior Avery Tigert with a 11-under 61.
