The Keiser University College of Golf School announces that two of its students recently captured top honors at the Fort Pierce City Golf Championship, held at the Indian Hills Golf Course in Fort Pierce, Fla. Students Adam Medcalf of Dysart, Queensland, Australia, and Travis Glass of Niagra on the Lake, Ontario, Canada, won first- and third-place, respectively, at the championship event.
In the first round, Medcalf took command, shooting a strong 67, and he never looked back. He was even par after 11 holes; and then he scorched the next six holes with seven-under par. He followed that performance with a solid even-par 72 on Sunday to win by six strokes. Glass delivered rounds of 68 and 78 to secure third-place.
“We’re very proud of both Adam and Travis for their impressive achievements at the city championship,” says John McMurry, vice president of Keiser University College of Golf. “The Indian Hills Golf Course has been a cornerstone of the City of Fort Pierce for 70 years, and it’s very rewarding to see our students, who come from all around the world, participating in and supporting the local community.”
