After falling short at the second stage of the Tour Qualifying Tournament last fall, Joel Dahmen spent a couple of months doing a bit of soul-searching: passing time on his couch and trying to figure out what he wanted to do with his life.

At the age of 26, Dahmen was at a potential crossroads. He had already overcome some significant obstacles – his mother's death while in high school; the loss of his scholarship to the University of Washington; a bout with cancer – to establish himself as a reputable player on PGA TOUR Canada.

But he wanted more. Dahmen had never made it to the final stage of Q-School, and with precious years of his prime ticking away, he knew that something needed to change if he wanted to move his way up the golf ranks.
