Callum Ashby (Highland Pacific Golf) continues his phenomenal season as leader of the Professional Development Program standings heading into September. Ashby's dedication to his club, community and the Association have solidified his position atop the overall and Assistants' standings races.

Dennis Bradley (Copper Point Golf Club) parlayed an active month which saw him participate in volunteerism to rise up the standings. Bradley overtook several of his peers to gain control of second-place in the overall and Assistants' leaderboard.

Among rookies, Bradley Gagnon (Capilano Golf & Country Club) has cruised atop the leaderboard for most of the season and holds a seven-point lead over Shania Remandaban (Vancouver Golf Club).

The PGA of BC extends our appreciation to Sunice & Bobby Jones for their generous support of the Professional Development Program. For more information including the full leaderboard, please click here.
