Colombia sweeps golf’s reintroduction at Pan Am Games

The tournament was considered a test run for next year’s Olympics when golf returns after a 112 year absence. Canada is the defending gold medalist at the Olympics, with George S. Lyon winning the last Olympic golf gold in 1904.

Chilean Felipe Aguilar and Argentine Tommy Cocha went to aplayoff for silver and bronze in the men event.

American Andrea Lee won women silver and Paraguay JulietaGranada bronze.

With his gold medal Rozo will gain entry to the RBC Canadian Open next week in Oakville, Ont. It will be his first PGA Tour start. The Colombian had planned on going to visit his girlfriend this week, but said she understood the change of plans.

"I was going to go to New York to see my girlfriend after two months," he said. "But she’ll understand. I told her last night and she was very happy and supportive. I was thankful for that."

Canada came eighth in the team portion of the tournament, despite the withdrawal of rising teen star Brooke Henderson.

Henderson, 17, said she would play in the games, but instead decided she would play on the Symetra Tour, where she finished tied for seventh. Unable to replace Henderson on the team, Canada was represented on the women’s side by veteran Lorie Kane. Kane finished tied for 19th.

Canada’s main hopes rested on teenager Austin Connelly, who started the final round four shots off the lead. But Connelly, a dual citizen who lives in Dallas, Texas, and spends his summers in Nova Scotia, didn’t have much success in the final round finishing the tournament in fifth.

"I got off to a rough start," Connelly said. "I hit what I thought was a pretty good tee ball on three and it kicked right into the hazard. That isn’t a good start when you’re four shots off the lead."

Connelly’s teammate for the men’s portion of the tournament was Garrett Rank, an amateur who is a professional hockey referee and officiated a handful of NHL games this past season.

"I played great every day minus one hole," Rank said, who finished in 15th place. "If it was a 17 hole tournament, I’d be 10 under for the week. It was a good week and the game is moving in the right direction and a good confidence builder for the rest of the summer."

As for the notion of playing golf full time, Rank says he’ll stick with his officiating gig.

"I’m comfortable in my job and I love playing golf and everything that comes with it," Rank says. "I might consider professional golf down the road, but right at the moment it is too much of a risk considering my job."
