Class "A" Professional, Pheasant Glen Golf Resort
PGA of Canada member since: 2012
Why did you become a PGA of Canada Professional?
I worked in a back shop in my hometown of Lloydminster, Sask. as a junior golfer. At the end of one summer, I asked the Head Professional how to join the pro shop staff and not clean clubs anymore. That conversation lead me to applying to Grant MacEwan College to enroll in the Professional Golf Management Program. Shortly after turning 18, I joined the PGA of Canada.
Who has influenced your career the most, and how?
The person that has most influenced my career is Gord Melissa, the Head Professional I work under at Pheasant Glen. Since making the move to the PGA of BC Zone, he has helped me grow as a Professional and assisted me in becoming a better instructor and coach.
What is your most cherished golf memory?
One golf memory that I cherish is getting a hole-in-one on a par-4 at the age of 14. It was on the 284-yard 14th hole at Alberta's Wainwright Golf Club.

Every day seems to be filled with different tasks and different people. Not may careers see change like this from day to day and this can make it very rewarding.
