It seems fitting that in the same year The PGA of America elects its first women president in Suzy Whaley, the Utah Section PGA awards its first-ever Omega Women’s Player of the year to Olsen. The number of women members in the PGA and the Utah Section is continually growing and Olsen is in the forefront of 2018 winning two of the four events. Olsen started the year with a victory in the Red Rock Golf Trail Winter Classic in February and bookended the year with her second win at the Section Championship at Toana Vista Golf Club in September.
The Utah Section PGA, experts in the game and business of golf in Utah, is proud to conclude another successful season with the releasing of the 2018 Utah Section PGA Awards. Utah PGA Executive Director Devin Dehlin shared the following message, “We have 350 Members and Associates in our Section that are making a difference in the game of golf on a daily basis. This year we had more nominees than ever before with so many deserving Professionals. We are very proud of this year’s winners and the overall group of Professionals in Utah.”
