PGA of BC champions crowned at Kamloops Golf and Country Club

Conner Kozak and Rob Anderson each fired 5-under-par final rounds of 67 on Tuesday at Kamloops Golf and Country Club to win the PGA of BC Assistants’ and Seniors’ Championships presented by Natera Sport and Arbor Memorial, respectively.

Kozak (The Okanagan Golf Club) matched the 67 he shot in Monday’s opening round to capture the Assistants’ Championship and the top prize of $3,000 at 10-under-par, finishing two strokes clear of Keith Martin (Tower Ranch Golf Club) and Zach Olson (Chilliwack Golf Club).

“It’s pretty crazy,” Kozak said of winning his first PGA of BC title. “I didn’t really think that this was an option coming into the week. I haven’t golfed a ton (this year) so I’m just as surprised as anyone else is. It’s awesome and it’s a great feeling.”

Anderson’s 67 on Tuesday was the low round of the Seniors’ Championship, making four birdies over his last six holes to secure a five-stroke victory.

Playing the event for PGA of BC Professionals aged 50 and older for the first time, Anderson, 53, took home $1,400 and will have his name etched on the Ben Colk Trophy.

“It feels very good to finally post a good round. I haven’t played a lot of great golf so far this year, so it was nerve-wracking and fun to be out here,” said Anderson, Kelowna Golf and Country Club’s Head Professional.
