Five local golfers are amongst the top 100 pros in the province.
The PGA of BC released their Top 100 Golf Professionals list last week which inlcudes five pros from the East Kootenay.
The organization says the list honours those who show tremedous contributions to the industry and their respective clubs.
St. Eugene Resort’s Chris Medford was listed and says he takes pride in representing his club.
“[I’m always] getting as much information as I can from the tour industries [and] the manufacterers to be on top of the leading edge of information [and] the top teaching dynamics.” explains Medford.
St. Eugene’s Cindy Soukoroff, Copper Point’s Scott McClain and Brian Schaal and Fairmont Hot Springs’ Jeremy Johnson were also named to the list.
Medford says he tries to learn and better himself as a professional everyday.
“It’s a matter of trying to get better day by day and push yourself, go to seminars and just become the best.” says Medford.
The list is part of PGA of BC’s Professional Development Program that was introduced in 2013.
