  • Hometown Triumph For Comox, BC’s Riley Wheeldon In Final PGA TOUR Canada Q-School

    Riley Wheeldon Has Fully Exempt Status This Year On The PGA TOUR Canada - PGA TOUR Canada Image

    By Brad Ziemer, British Columbia Golf

    Riley Wheeldon will tell you it was a lot more than home course advantage that propelled him to his impressive performance at the PGA TOUR Canada qualifying school at Crown Isle Golf Resort.

    Sure, his intimate familiarity with the Crown Isle layout that is located not far from his childhood home in Comox came in handy, but Wheeldon credits an attitude adjustment with his solid play.

    “My game has always been there,” Wheeldon said. “My attitude hasn’t. That was one thing I said to myself last summer, that if I was going to keep doing this, my attitude has to change. Having a little refresh this winter, I was able to come out and focus on attitude and let everything else fall into place and behold, this game is pretty fun.”
