Seventeen Year Old At American Golf Camp

MAGRATH -- In a town big on sports, it isn't uncommon for youth to excel in more than one sport. Brooks Blackmer, 17, plays both basketball (for the Magrath Zeniths' boys team) and golf. In fact, a recent invitation to attend the Canadian junior team golf camp in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina this spring may take Blackmer away from playing basketball in the finals.

Blackmer, a member of the Magrath Alberta Stake is one of 15 junior golfers across the country to be invited to the 10-18 March 2001 camp/tournament by the Royal Canadian Golf Association.

Depending on how well he plays, Blackmer could then go on to be a member of a four-man team to play at a World Junior Qualifying Match in Vancouver this April. The Canadian team would be playing against Mexico. Winners from this match would then go to Japan to compete in the World Junior Championship in June.

Though he is pretty humble in his abilities and thinks he needs much improvement, he has won numerous titles and has qualified for many tournaments. In fact, he has even received golf scholarship offers from some American colleges, but is planning on serving a full-time mission shortly after graduation from high school.
