Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., has become a Canadian PGA member and will write a weekly blog on the association’s website, www.cpga.com.
DeLaet, 27, will write an inside-the-ropes commentary on a season that has started off well with four top-15 finishes in South Africa, two of those as runner-up.
His performance in South Africa comes on the heels on a tie for 13th at the World Cup in China while playing with Calgary’s Wes Heffernan and a victory at the Canadian Tour’s Montreal Open. He also finished second at the Jane Rogers Championship and Canadian Tour Championship as the 2008 season wound down.
“The experience I’ve had in the last few months playing golf around the world should be great preparation for the 2009 season,” said DeLaet, who is currently ranked 245th in the world.
DeLaet’s first blog will appear following the first event on the Canadian Tour season.
