IUPUI's Wirkkala Selected to Play in Minority Collegiate Golf Championship

IUPUI senior men's golfer Philip Wirkkala was recently selected to play in the 26th PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship at the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla. on May 11-13. Wirkkala is among 35 individuals selected to play, along with 20 NCAA Division I and II teams from across the country.

It marks the fourth straight year he's been invited to play in the event. In addition to the tournament, participants have the opportunity to attend a Business of Golf Careers Expo at the PGA Education Center the day before the event tees off.

Wirkkala, a native of McCordsville, Ind., is enjoying his best season in an IUPUI uniform with a 78.32 stroke average in 22 rounds this year. Wirkkala fired a career-low round of 71 at the McLaughlin in mid-September, finishing that event with a career-best score of 221 (73-71-77). For his four-year career, he holds an 80.05 scoring average in 66 competitive rounds.
