Women’s Head Coach, Tristan Mullally, could not be more proud of the hard work that each player has put in, along with the dedication of the coaching staff.
“This is a validation of work that’s being done both in the background and with the players – it’s a testament to the effort put forth by Golf Canada and the entire supporting staff,” said Mullally. “In year’s past the target has been to get one or two players into the top 100 – to have all five is an accomplishment we are all proud of. The goal now is to keep going and get all the girls into the top 50 and so on”.
Reluctant to take any credit, Mullally did go on to express the pride that the coaching staff feels from such an achievement.
“When I came on board to the program, I was certainly taking over from some unbelievably good work,” he said. “Things have continued to grow and I am very proud, but more than that I am truly proud of the players because it comes down to their performance in the end. We (the coaches) work incredibly hard to impact the lives of these players. It’s a very important job and we take it very seriously.”
