Golf Canada has announced the six athletes selected to the 2017 Team Canada Young Pro Squad.
Comprising the team for 2017 is Augusta James of Bath, Ont., Jennifer Ha of Calgary, Anne-Catherine Tanguay of Quebec City, Albin Choi of Toronto, Taylor Pendrith of Richmond Hill, Ont. and Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont..
The focus of the Young Pro Squad—now in its fourth year—is to bridge the gap for top-performing amateurs transitioning into the professional ranks.
“These dedicated athletes are a strong reflection of Canada’s commitment producing winners at all levels of golf and we are proud to continue supporting these aspiring professionals,” said Golf Canada chief sport officer and interim CEO Jeff Thompson.
“The support we’ve received from our sponsors and partners has helped the Young Pro initiative achieve remarkable results in a relatively narrow time frame and we look forward to further strides in 2017,” he said.
