COLWOOD, British Columbia (PGA of BC) — After a first round that saw over twenty players sit within three shots of the lead heading into the final round, Gordy Scutt of Olympic View Golf Club edged out the competition to claim the 2016 TaylorMade and adidas Golf PGA of BC Championship presented by Axis Insurance Managers hosted at Royal Colwood Golf Club.
