Medicine Hat junior golfer Michael Valk wasted no time finding the top of the leaderboard this season.

The 18-year-old won a Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour event in Surrey, B.C. this past weekend, shooting two rounds of 5-over par 77 to top the 11-player field at Morgan Creek Golf Club.

Valk’s combined score of 154 was five strokes better than Saskatoon’s Rylan Lukey.

Valk added a closest to the pin skills victory on the weekend and takes the early lead in the tour’s points standings. Once again there are no MJT events in his hometown to play this summer, though there’s an event in Lethbridge May 6 and 7.
