In just its second year, Team Canada’s Young Pro program is showing strong signs of progress in supporting Canada’s bright young professionals in their long journey to success in the professional golf ranks.
Brooke Henderson and Sue Kim both notched Symetra Tour victories in 2015, Adam Svensson won three of his first four professional events, Albin Choi won on the Mackenzie Tour in 2015—to name a few.
Launched in 2014, the Young Pro program was added to Golf Canada’s high performance program to fill the gap of support available for amateurs transitioning to professional golf. In just its second year, the program expanded from five to eight athletes to accommodate for the growing pool of elite Canadian talent.
Three of Canada’s Young Pro Squad men (Svensson, Pendrith, Conners) will look to make their mark on the PGA TOUR in the upcoming RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont., from July 20–26.
