Junior Golf Gets Boost From Sligo Wear Inc's MJT Sponsorship

Vancouver, B.C.  – The Maple Leaf Junior Tour (MJT), Canada’s number one-played junior golf tour, is pleased to announce a new Sponsor Partnership with Sligo Wear Inc., the leader in golf fashion and performance.

For the 2015 season, Sligo will supply the Tour with prizing from the exciting new Sligo Wear Collection for the “Sligo Skills Competition” at every MJT stop across the country, where junior girls and boys in six age divisions will take part in a closest-to-the-pin competition.

“This is great for young golfers across the country,” said Murray Poje, PGA of Canada Professional and Executive Director of the MJT. “The Sligo Wear Collection is full of fun, cool product which kids will love to win, and having a MJT alumnus, Roger Sloan, as a Team Sligo PGA Tour Player, just adds to what the juniors can aspire to.”

The sponsorship from Sligo Wear Inc. adds to the strong roster of MJT Sponsors including Presenting Partner Boston Pizza, along with Premier Partners Ford of Canada, Mr. Lube, Srixon / Cleveland Golf, Gatorade and Travel Underwriters, and several key Tournament and Product Partners.

The MJT hosts more than 70 events across Canada, including free Ford Go Golf Junior Clinics, the MJT Mini Tour for 7-12 year olds, and the Junior Tour of multi-day events for competitive players which also qualify juniors for international competitions. The MJT offers the very first all-encompassing college recruitment program in Canada and is the ‘Road to College Golf’ for aspiring young players; the program’s alumni include many Professional Tour players and PGA of Canada Professionals, as well as Canadian Amateur, National and Provincial Junior Champions. The program aims to develop champions, in golf and in life, promoting the game from grassroots through to provincial, national, university and professional level.
