The PGA of Canada today announced the creation of a new PGA national championship, the Nike Golf PGA Team Championship of Canada.
This unique championship sees two PGA of Canada professionals pairing up with the partner of his or her choice. The pair competes together in their respective PGA of Canada Zone Qualifier with hopes of landing one of the coveted spots in the $90,000 purse Nike Golf PGA Team Championship of Canada.
“We couldn’t be more excited to launch this one-of-a-kind PGA national championship with our friends from Nike Golf Canada,” said PGA of Canada CEO Gary Bernard. “Their support of the association, at both the national and zone level. with this championship will create incredible competition and camaraderie around the country.”
A Nike Golf PGA Team Championship of Canada qualifier will be held in each PGA of Canada Zone this summer with the 52 top teams booking their ticket to the national championship final at a location that will be announced in the very near future.
“We are proud to launch the inaugural Nike Golf PGA Team Championship,” said Tyler Keenan, Marketing Director at Nike Golf Canada. “We are confident the format will inspire PGA professionals across the country to team up and compete for a spot in this one-of-a-kind national championship.”
The Nike Golf PGA Team Championship of Canada will be a 54-hole championship with a different team format each day—fourball, scramble and foursomes.
The winning team from the Nike Golf PGA Team Championship of Canada will also receive an exemption into the Confederation of Professional Golf International Team Championship in December to represent the PGA of Canada
