PGA of BC names Top 100 Golf Professionals of 2022


JANUARY 10, 2023

RICHMOND, BC (PGA of British Columbia) – The PGA of BC is proud to recognize its Top 100 Golf Professionals of 2022, as determined by the Association’s Professional Development Program (PDP) Order of Merit presented by Sunice & Bobby Jones.

The PDP Order of Merit acknowledges PGA of BC Professionals who make outstanding contributions to the Association, their communities, the province’s golf industry and, most importantly, themselves. The PDP provides an avenue to showcase and reward the diverse strengths of PGA of BC Professionals by crediting their participation in continuing education, the Association’s annual Buying Show and Awards Program, tournament competition and various forms of volunteerism.

“Sunice & Bobby Jones would like to congratulate members of the PGA of BC named to the Association’s Top 100 Golf Professionals in 2022,” said Stephen Graham, BC Sales Representative, Sunice & Bobby Jones. “The group of men and women who comprise the list of Top 100 professionals is always remarkable and their efforts to maintain their position demonstrates tremendous dedication to their craft and personal growth.

“We are proud to support an initiative like the Professional Development Program that recognizes the hard work of PGA of BC members to the benefit of all in British Columbia’s golf community and industry.” 

Additionally, the PGA of BC is pleased to acknowledge Brian McDonald, Executive Professional at Fairview Mountain Golf Club, has topped the 2022 PDP Order of Merit for a second consecutive year, becoming the first two-time winner of the program. McDonald amassed 109 points over the course of the year, topping this year’s standings by 11-points.  

"When I looked at the list last year of past winners, I noticed that no one had ever gone back-to-back since the PDP’s inception so I actually used that as a big part of my motivation for the season and my planned participation in events,” said McDonald. “I have always prided myself on being an active PGA of BC member because it keeps you connected to what is going on within the industry and allows you to meet so many likeminded PGA members along the way”.

McDonald acknowledged that his efforts to top the standings in succession required immense commitment to himself through not only events such as education and tournaments, but also in the many ways a PGA professional can give back to their community through volunteerism.

Finding ways to invest in yourself and self-motivation to learn is an endless task and McDonald acknowledges that his peers pushing him through the year-long standings helped drive him.

"I think the moment you stop paying attention to opportunities to grow within your industry it’s the start of your decline," said McDonald.

2022 PGA of Canada Pat Fletcher Retailer of the Year recipient and Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club Head Professional Ashley Zibrik finished runner-up in this year’s standings, having accumulated 98 points throughout 2022. The second-place finish marks Zibrik’s highest finish in the annual program.

Fairview Mountain Golf Club Head Professional Rob Tadey and 2022 Dick Munn Golf Professional of the Year Nathan Grieve (Talking Rock Golf Course) finished in a tie for third place at 97 points, just a single-point back of Zibrik.
