A Salmon Arm golfer placed well at the Thompson Rivers University Invitational season opener, the first Pac West Athletic Association golf tournament of the season. It was played at the Dunes Golf Course in Kamloops on Sept. 18 and 19.

Salmon Arm’s Cody Bell of UBC Okanagan came in at sixth place with a score of 147 (74-73 on each of the days), only a two-day total of eight shots behind first place.

Men’s first place went to Camosun College’s Jared Hundza of Edmonton with a 68-71 on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

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.
