New Weekend Hacker, National Post Column

The latest Weekend Hacker, where our intrepid course reviewer heads to Timber Ridge in Brighton, Ont., is now posted here.

Similarly my latest National Post column, focusing on the development of two of the country’s top young golfers, is online here.

Here’s a taste:

The path to professional golf for top Canadian players used to be so simple. Play well as a teen, head to a big U.S. college, win some events and when or if you graduate, turn pro.

But that path is no longer a straight line, as two of Canada’s best young golfers — Canadian Amateur runner-up Todd Halpen and Canadian Open star Victor Ciesielski — are clearly demonstrating.

Both players were in Toronto earlier this week for the official announcement of the Royal Canadian Golf Association’s men’s and women’s national teams.
