GAO saddened by death of scholarship recipient Grace Glofcheskie


GUELPH— The Golf Association of Ontario (GAO) was saddened to learn of the passing of 2014 GAO Scholarship recipient Grace Glofcheskie who was struck by a car on Dec. 13 in Guelph. Glofcheskie, a former member of the Guelph Gryphons golf team, and part-time assistant coach, was just 24-years-old.

According to the police report, Glofcheskie was walking home on Woolwich Street, when she was hit by a stolen car. Glofcheskie was transported to the Guelph General Hospital, but sadly succumbed to her injuries. The driver of the vehicle originally fled the scene on foot, but was arrested on Dec. 15 and faces numerous charges.

Glofcheskie recently graduated with her Master of Science degree and had been offered a golf biomechanics research position at the prestigious IMG Academy in Florida to continue the work that she pioneered at the University of Guelph.

Originally from Arnprior, Glofcheskie played five seasons on the golf team (2010-14) with her best season coming in 2013 where she notched five top-10 finishes.

The GAO sends its deepest sympathies to Glofcheskie’s family and friends during this difficult time.
