Corner Brook’s Taylor Cormier, representing the Blomidon Golf Club, won the Girls 15-18 division of the Future Links Junior Skills Challenge National Event at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont. on Saturday.

In addition to a champion’s package from Titleist Footjoy, Cormier earned an exemption into the local 2019 Future Links.

The National Event, running for the 10th consecutive year, crowned female and male champions from three age groups (9-11, 12-14 and 15-18), with 24 participants in all.

In Saturday’s National Event, juniors competed in a four-part skills challenge which tested putting, chipping, driving and iron play.

Saturday's participants had the highest scores on the National Leaderboard after participating in a Skills Challenge qualifying event at their local club. Throughout the year, over 180 clubs hosted a Future Links, driven by Acura Junior Skills Challenge with over 3000 junior golfers participating.

On Friday, the National Event participants received an apparel prize pack from Cobra Golf handed out in the Glen Abbey locker room and they played the back nine of Glen Abbey on Sunday in the Golf Canada Junior Open.

Participants will be provided weekly grounds passes and have an opportunity to be involved in Monday’s Golf Canada Foundation Pro-Am and secure a spot in Wednesday’s Walk with a Pro event.
