PGA scholarship

For the second time, Kowan O’Keefe has been awarded a PGA of Canada scholarship to assist him in continuing his education. O’Keefe is currently attending his second year at Minot State University in North Dakota in the biology (pre-medicine) program. He is a member of the Minot State golf team and was awarded the 2010 Athletic Director’s Academic Achievement Award and is a member of the President’s Honour Roll.

He placed a very respectable 22nd in the 109th BC Amateur Championship at the Dunes in Kamloops in July.
