Congratulations to Chris Ward of the Edmonton Petroleum G&CC on winning this year’s Top 100 Award as determined by the rankings in the Top 100 Program presented by Foresight Sports Canada! The Top 100 Program is based on pre-defined measurable criteria designed to recognize Members who dedicate their time and demonstrate proven abilities in advancing the Association’s interests for the benefit of all Golf Professionals.
Chris had a fantastic year within the Top 100 Program after accumulating 104 points throughout the program year to win by just one point! It was a goal of Chris’ this year to win the Top 100 Award and he accomplished that by increasing his point total by 56 overall compared to last year, going from T-19th in the standings in 2019 to winning the title this year.
It was an exciting race for the trophy this year, primarily between Chris and Sean Thompson after going back and forth at the end of the program year trying to secure first place. With the win, Chris prevents Sean from going back-to-back for the award after winning in 2019 and cements himself in the PGA of Alberta history books.
In addition to the Award winner, the Association is proud to award 10 cash prizes to the top point earners. Members needed to accumulate 76 points or more to earn a cheque this year. Congratulations to the following cash recipients who will receive their prize shortly:
