JT Kelly to Carry Canadian Flag at the OIJGC

The Optimist International Junior Golf Championships involve junior golfers representing more than 30 different nations from around the world.  The championship event begins with the Opening Ceremony and Parade of Flags on Wednesday, July 27 - the night before the first tournament round for Boys 16-18 and Girls 15-18.

JT Kelly a 17-year old boy who was sponsored in our District Junior Golf Championships last year by the Airdrie Optimist Club, has been designated to carry the Canadian flag during this year’s Opening Ceremonies.

The AMS&NW District is once again proud that OI has honored us by selecting one of our junior golfers for a special event during the OIJGC. Last year, Colin Gunstream from Missoula was selected to be one member of the two-man team that represented the USA in last year’s OIJGC “Ryder Cup” Competition.
