The GLT was instrumental in the development of my career as a professional golfer. I loved having the opportunity to test my game against great competition on outstanding golf courses all across Ontario. Learning how to win and how to handle being in contention is paramount at every level of professional golf and the GLT helped me tremendously with that. I still draw on those experiences to this day and will continue to do so on the PGA Tour
