The Wallaceburg Sports Hall of Fame has made a donation to a local golfer, who is embarking on his professional golf career.
“Ian Dent of the Wallaceburg Sports Hall of Fame is happy to donate $500 to Brendan Seys to help kick-start his professional golf career,” Sports Hall of fame officials said on social media.
“Brendan is currently playing in the Toronto Players Tour and has stops in the Mackenzie Tour next month. Good luck Brendan.”
The Port Lambton resident and UCC grad played golf for Wayne State University for four years and was planning to attend the University of Nevada in the fall, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
He decided to turn pro instead.
Seys picked up numerous accolades during his time with Wayne State.
In 2019/2020, Seys was named Second Team PING/GCAA All-American, earned GLIAC Player of the Year and All-GLIAC First Team honors.
He was also selected to the Division II GCAA/PING All-Region Team and was named to the GLIAC All-Academic Team.
