PICKERING, Ont. – The PGA of Ontario released their list of nine award recipients for the 2015 season on Wednesday. It has been a busy week for the association, who also recently announced their headquarters are moving from a plaza in Pickering to the Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham.
Among this year’s nine award recipients was Team Canada’s Women’s Head Coach, Tristan Mullally.
“I am incredibly proud to receive this award from the PGA of Ontario,” said the Class “A” member. “In this game, you always work hard to do the best job you can and it’s really an honour to be recognized by your peers.”
Mullally, a CDC certified coach with the PGA of Canada, has been at the helm of Canada’s National Women’s program since 2011. Since joining Team Canada, Mullally’s role has expanded to include coaching athletes on both the Young Pro and Amateur Squad—which totalled seven athletes in 2015 (including LPGA Tour star Brooke Henderson).
