A young golfer from the Fort is advancing to the Alberta Open.
 
It's a rare feat, but 16-year-old Jarrett Bossert qualifyied in Stony Plain yesterday (May 15).
 
"He played his round, he played really well and he was quite happy with it," explained his father and caddy, Sheldon Bossert. "He didn't actually know [if he made the cut] until probably about 7:00 p.m. last night, he was ecstatic, he was over the moon. Still was this morning."
 
The young Bossert, following in his father's golfing footsteps, battling the weather, opened with a double bogey. With a pep talk from his father, he quickly got over the first shot jitters, parring the next seven holes to end up shooting a 78 game, just two shy of the 80 cut off.
 
That result will see him moving on to the Alberta Open, the largest tournament for amateurs and professionals in the province. That's in Sundre on June 19 and 20.
 
In the mean time, Bossert will be teeing off at Red Tail Landing this weekend for the Canadian Junior Golf Association Tournament. Besides that, he'll be on the driving range anywhere between three to six hours a day, practicing for the big showdown in Sundre.
