Megan Osland’s professional golf career is off to a positive start.
The Kelowna product finished a solid fourth last week in her first full pro event at the National Women’s Golf Association tournament in Beaumont, CA.
Battling strong wind at Morongo Golf Club, Osland carded an opening round 76, followed by a 78 to sit in seventh place through two rounds.
In the third and final round, in even windier conditions, Osland equalled the best score of the day with a two-over par 74 to finish solo fourth with a 228 total.
Osland said she was satisfied with the end result, considering the adverse conditions.
She graduated from San Jose State University in December 2015 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Recreation Management.
Osland was the captain of the Spartans Div. 1 women’s team and won the Juli Inkster Invitational and the Wyoming Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate in her final year.
The KSS grad is now dedicating herself full time towards a professional career and will play this season on the Symetra Tour, the main developmental tour for the LPGA.
