Beeton, ON – Golfers came out flying during the 101st edition of the Ontario Junior U19 Boys Championship at The Club at Bond Head. Players battled through the extreme heat and posted many impressive scores. We look to be in for another exciting day at the 101st Ontario Junior U19 Boys Championship.

Leading the way after round one is Matthew Javier (Scarboro Golf & Country Club), who finishes the first-round shooting 66-par (-6). Javier was consistent throughout the round, with seven birdies on the day. Right behind Javier is Matthew Lyons (Summit Golf & Country Club) and Finn Meister, who are in a two-way tie for second place after both shot 67-par (-5) on the first day. Lyons had a strong day where he had seven birdies. Meister finished the day with 8 birdies and 1 eagle.
