Belleville, ON – With fall golf in full swing, players have been enjoying the moderate temperatures during the first couple days at Black Bear Ridge Golf Course, for the 1st Annual Golf Ontario Provincial Super Camp.
The first two days of testing included the Golf Canada National Testing Protocols, a Session with Sport Psychologist Dr. Charles Fitzsimmons, and an Interactive Rules Session with Jim Davidson of the OVGA. Golf Canada National Testing Protocols (NTP) are standardized tests that provide feedback on all parts of the game, which can be compared to other athletes at the provincial and national level, and provide data for coaches and players. The NTP includes separate tests for putting, chipping, pitching, sand bunkers, ball speed, and wedge and long game combine with Trackman.
Players also completed a practice round and competed in a Short Course Competition during the first two days. Winners of the competition on the Boys’ side included a tie between pairings of Justin Matthews (Bigwin Island GC) and Noah Campbell (Coppinwood), and Cameron Pero (Picton G&CC) and Matthew Javier (Scarborough G&CC), at a score of three under par. On the Girls’ side, pairing Emily McKee (Rattlesnake Point GC) and Alessandra Nagayo (Don Valley GC) won with a score of two-under par.
Thank you to Ryan Robillard of Ambassador Golf Club, Doug Lawrie of Focus Golf Group, Jim Davidson of Ottawa Valley Golf Association, and Emily Phoenix of Golf Canada for your amazing support and assistance during the Provincial Super Camp. Also a huge thank you to TaylorMade for providing the Trackmans during our testing, as they were critical during our combines. Moving forward, the Provincial Super Camp will be an integral part of the soon to be launched New Junior Competitive Pathway.
Following round one of competition, the current leaders for the Boys’ are Jordan Hwang (York Downs G&CC) with 72, Ryan Somerville (The Summit G&CC) with 74, and Isaiah Ibit (GreyHawk GC) with 75. On the Girls’ side, the current leaders are Alessandra Nagayo (Don Valley GC) with 74, Rozlyn Rooke (Blue Springs GC) with 75, and Alexis McMurray (Glen Abbey GC) with 76.
