Richmond Hill, Ontario (June 12th, 2023) – When the CJGA began 30 years ago, it had a dream to help develop our countries top junior golfers for the future of Canada, to put Canada on the World stage in golf.

Since the CJGA has moved forward, many of its juniors have moved on to play on the PGA Tour proving that the Canadian Junior Golf Association is Canada’s #1 Developmental Golf Tour in Canada.

The RBC Canadian Open field consisted of many CJGA Alumni; Corey Conners, Mackenzie Hughes, Adam Svensson, Nick Taylor, Adam Hadwin, Roger Sloan, Ben Silverman, Aaron Cockerill, Michael Gligic, Daniel Kim, Stuart Macdonald, Johnny Travale, Myles Creighton and Taylor Pendrith.

On Sunday, June 11, 2023, Nick Tayler, who has already won on the PGA Tour, won the RBC Canadian Open. Nick was the first Canadian to win the RBC Canadian Open since Pat Fletcher won it in 1954. This marks one of the greatest moments in Canadian Sports in some time.

“Nick was one of the Juniors that I had taken to represent CJGA Team Canada in World Competitions several times,” said Earl Fritz, CJGA CEO. “I always knew that he had greatness in him.”

The Canadian Junior Golf Association provides over 130 junior events throughout Canada plus the World Junior Challenge held December 27-30th each year at the Innisbrook Resort in Florida.
