Blackmer Misses Canadian Team By Two Shots

MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA -- Magrath's Brooks Blackmer was worried a month ago that he had been out of practice too long when he had been invited to tryout for Canada's World Junior Golf Team by competing with 15 other Canadians in a tournament in South Carolina.

Despite his doubts, Blackmer managed to oust 10 of the others who attended the tournament. Unfortunately his 229 score just wasn't enough to get him a place on the four-man team.

The tournament was taken by J.C. Deacon of Unionville, Ontario, who scored a 220. Kevin Blue of Don Mills, Ontario, came in second with 224, followed by James Lepp of Abbotsford, B.C., with 225 and Richard Scott of Kingsville, Ontario, with 228.

Blackmer wasn't the only one to get so close to making the team. Two others came close enough that a three-way playoff was held to see who would grab the alternate slot. Blackmer beat the others, and will have a chance to play on the team if one of the four are not able to make it to the World Junior Team Qualifier Apr. 10-12 in Vancouver, B.C., or the World Junior Team Championship in Hyogo, Japan, June 14-17.
