A player more renowned for his amateur success will tee it up at the Mr. Lube-Canadian PGA Seniors’ Championship presented by Cleveland Golf/Srixon, July 5-8 at RattleSnake Point in Milton, Ont.
“I can’t tell you how excited I am to tee it up in my first Canadian PGA national championship,” said Ontario Golf Hall of Fame member Warren Sye. “I’m looking forward to competing against this impressive field of Canadian PGA professionals, many of whom are great friends.”
Sye’s resume includes five Ontario Amateur championships and two Canadian Amateurs. He has also played in five Canadian Opens.
A member of nine Willingdon Cup teams in Ontario, Sye considers his most memorable moment to be a gold medal from the 1986 World Amateur Team Championship in Caracas, Venezuela.
Sye remained an amateur in order to work close to home in sales and marketing, but at the age of 53, he is planning to attend Champions Tour qualifying school this autumn.
“Warren Sye is a very accomplished player that has performed at every level he has played at,” said Canadian PGA executive director Gary Bernard. “Our field is shaping up to be one of the best we’ve ever had and Warren will certainly add to it.”
