Despite being in the minority in her chosen profession, Jil Swenson has already carved out a substantial niche in the field of professional golf. The second year assistant pro at the Stony Plain Golf Course is one of only 14 females in the province to hold that job title out of the 500 carded assistant pros within the Alberta PGA. Given all that it would seem a tough task to face on a day-to-day basis, but in sitting down with Inside Golf Swenson said she's loved every minute of the challenges the industry has presented her thus far and she's ready for whatever may lay ahead as she enters her second season.
