11th Annual JOHN ZELIZNEY CUP Team Matches - August 27-28, 2016, Mission, BC
Team Fraser Valley vs Team Lower Mainland
Ryder Cup style "Match Play Golf" was the order of the weekend for 24 keen and Optimist Junior Linkster golfers at the Mission GC and Cedar Ridge GC, Saturday and Sunday last.
Scoring for the unique format sees Teams playing the Front Nine for 1 'point', the Back Nine for 1 'point' and the overall 18-Holes for 1 'point.' 3 Points was available for each of the 6 Day 1 matches.
Six "Best Ball" matches were contested on Day 1 at the historic and challenging Mission GC. Match play for two-player teams allows the players to "consult" or give advice in their game and help one another out to bring out the best in the "Team." Most of the matches between the friendly rivals were very close, with a great "putt" here or a happy "chip in" there, making the difference in the end.
Good sportsmanship, teamwork and comraderie was the order of the day, best exemplified by the life of Optimist John Zelizney, founder of the "Junior Linkster Tour Canada", the "Super Uke!"

Twelve "Singles" Match play matches were the feature of Day 2 at the Cedar Ridge GC, the top Par 3 golf facility in British Columbia, featuring a full driving range and practice areas for all ages. The unique "log cabin" down home atmosphere is so apparent from the first moment you arrive! The John Zelizney Cup Team Matches were much closer on this day as each of the 24 competitors played head to head match play with 3 point matches again the format. Team Lower Mainland made a valiant comeback and won six of the matches but the Fraser Valley prevailed on the day and overall. Team Captain Christopher Dale of the Fraser Valley Team happily raises the John Zelizney Cup in Victory!

Jr. Linkster Tour Canada (JLTC) is organized to promote and assisting young golfers in achieving their goals through the motto of “Learn. Play. Compete.”
We incorporate the values of optimism as a philosophy of life utilizing the tenets of The Optimist Creed. The following are the five keys:
- To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
- To think only the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.
- To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
- To be just enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
- To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
The goal of Jr. Linkster Tour Canada is to conduct high quality junior golf playing and competition experiences. We take pride in the quality of players, host facilities, sponsors and a broad community involvement. Our objective is to offer “Affordable Golfing Opportunities” and to give as much support to young golfers through grass root golf development. This has been the guiding principle for the Tour throughout its existence.
We offer Jr. Linkster Tour throughout the season, Little Masters™ Skills Challenge competition and the annual Little Masters™ International Championship. We take pride of both Little Masters™ and the Jr. America's Cup. Our plan in the near future is to host annual Jr. Linkster Alumni Fund Raising Oar 3 Challenge Event for the Tour and for the prestigious Jr. America's Cup. In 2014, we hosted the 42nd Jr. America's Cup here in Vancouver. A team of four individual qualified players represented the Province of British Columbia.
As for the Tour, age divisions are 4-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-15 and 16-18 for both boys and girls. The 9 to 10 age group can now have opportunities to play at mid sized one day courses and at some regulation courses with certain permission.
The 48th Little Masters™ International Championship is to be held from August 8 to 11, 2016. This is an open event, and no membership is needed. The 2016 tour schedule offers much excitement and golf playing opportunities.
