TGI Golf, Europe’s leading buying group for golf professionals, has continued its commitment to support up and coming PGA Professionals by recognising the top assistants from around the country.

The TGI Golf PGA Assistant Professional of the Year Awards honour the best trainee Professionals from around the PGA’s seven regions – Scotland, Ireland, North, South, East, West and Midlands.

The top assistant from each of three year groups was recognised for their hard work and dedication throughout the year with a cheque of £250 going to Year One and Two winners, and £500 to Year Three, courtesy of TGI Golf.

Eddie Reid, TGI Golf Managing Director, said: “Every year the young assistants continue to raise the bar, setting new standards. This season has been no different with some fantastic achievements from these extremely promising PGA Professionals of the future.

“Congratulations to all those assistants who have collected awards and I wish them all the best for their future careers.”

Sandy Jones, PGA Chief Executive, added: “We are delighted that this year TGI Golf has once again supported the PGA training programme by presenting awards to the most successful assistants in each year across all our regions.

“The standard of young golf professionals emerging from the PGA Academy has never been higher – that is why the support of TGI Golf is so valuable as it not only rewards our young people for their hard work during their training period but gives them the recognition they thoroughly deserve and which will stand them in good stead throughout their careers.”
