For only the second time in Tour history, a golfer has won the Tyson Junior Golf Tour Women’s crown three times. This honour now belongs to Chatham’s Mackenzie Butzer.

The 18-year-old Ursuline graduate, won the final stop of the Tyson Junior Golf Tour this week with a 79 at Sunningdale Golf and Country Club in London, Ontario.

Butzer received a $1,000 bursary for post secondary school from Tim Hortons for the tour victory. A member at Maple City Country Club in Chatham, Butzer was only 0.5 points away from winning four straight championships, but missed out on the 2011 title after playing the minimum number of stops on the tour that season.

Hoping her tour performance this season will impress perspective college coaches and recruiters, Butzer won all seven stops she made on the tour this season, including wins at Dorchester, Highland, Forest City, West Haven, St. Thomas, Maple City and Sunningdale.

Butzer also played at the Golf Association of Ontario Women’s Champion of Champions Tournament this summer tying for fourth, finished 16th at the GAO Junior Girls Championship, and was 20th at the Canadian Junior Girls Championship.

Chatham’s Paul Seward also won the Sunningdale stop on the Tyson Junior Golf Tour, finishing with a 73.
