The biggest news of the weekend came from the golf course where Georgian’s Colton Kalkanis won the men’s individual title at the 2012 PING CCAA Golf National Championship in Oshawa, ON.

Colton became the first ever Georgian male athlete to win the gold at the event. To read more about the men’s and women’s golf teams tremendous showing at the nationals click here.
