The cross-border golf challenge in Medicine Hat saw a rare Alberta win.
 
Winning the Junior Ryder Cup is something young Fort golfer Jarrett Bossert is quite proud of.
 
"We were looking at the trophy with the names on it and we could only find five teams from Alberta in the past 20, 30 years," explained Bossert. "It's pretty cool that our names will be on that trophy."
 
On Tuesday (August 8), the morning saw a match of better ball with teammate Conner Ackroyd of St Albert. On the first hole, they made birdie together and ended up on top with a score of 64, something Bossert called unreal.
 
That afternoon was ultimate shot, a game where Bossert would hit the ball then Ackroyd would hit, they won seven up.
 
Wednesday saw some individual match action against a team member from Montana. Bossert was seven up but coming down on 18, he had to get extra points with a tie or beat him on 18. He ended up beating his Montana counterpart, securing the win for Team Alberta.
 
"It meant a lot, it was a fun tournament, a big event for Alberta Golf and I got to play with a lot of good guys," said Bossert.
 
Up next is the International in Jasper on August 14.
