SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The Sanford POWER Golf Academy has added Jacob Otta to the staff as an academy specialist.
Jacob Otta, a graduate of O’Gorman High School, was a 3-year varsity golfer and played on two AA state champion teams. While attending South Dakota State, Otta earned a degree in human biology with a minor in chemistry while continuing his golf career at the collegiate level.
