altWith an impressive list of accomplishments as an amateur under his belt, Taylor Pendrith is now setting his sights on similar success as a professional golfer.

The 23-year-old Kent State University graduate has come a long way from his high school days, when as an all around athlete, he had thoughts of pursuing a career in another sport.

“Starting out in high school, I was better in baseball than hockey or golf; and thought about even playing college ball,” admitted Pendrith, who attended Bayview Secondary in Richmond Hill, Ont.

“But in grade 11, I started playing in more golf tournaments and did well in those; and that’s when I started to focus more time on golf,” Pendrith explained. “Also, I like the part where golf is an individual sport and your results depend on you.”

According to his former schoolmate from Bayview Secondary, Rebecca Lee-Bentham, Pendrith made the right decision to pursue golf.
