Tournament Director Hugh Vassos commented, ”We are thrilled to bring Jamie, a two-time world long drive champion, to Kelowna to participate in the GolfBC Championship. Jamie is billed as “The Longest Professional Golfer on the Planet” and we know Okanagan golf fans are going to come out to watch him crush it in the Canyon. Jamie is a great addition to an already great field of players from around the world coming to entertain our golf fans. The excitement is building as we approach tee-off of year two for the GolfBC Championship. Sadlowski will demonstrate his amazing long drive skills at the Long Drive Challenge on Wednesday of tournament week. Don’t miss it.”

Sadlowski states, “I’m thrilled to be participating in the GolfBC Championship in beautiful Kelowna. The Mackenzie Tour is the path to the web.com Tour and eventually the PGA TOUR.  I look forward to meeting the great fans and sponsors of the event and playing in my home country.”
