Golf Canada Inside Golf Manitoba Junior Development Teams

Winnipeg’s Jack Taylor at Team Canada Development Squad Selection Camp

Golf Manitoba Junior Boys Development team member Jack Taylor, of St. Charles Country Club, is one of 22 men in Toronto this week looking to impress Golf Canada at their annual Development Squad Selection Camp.

Heading into this selection camp, Golf Manitoba Junior Boys Development Head Coach Derrik Goodwin believes the future is bright for Taylor based on what he puts into his preparation.

“It has been a privilege to watch Jack grow over the past couple seasons. Implementing regular strength training and fitness sessions into his regular routine has really allowed him to take the next step in his game. Jack has become bigger and stronger, allowing him to pick up some serious distance off the tee” said Goodwin. The detail he puts into his golf training sessions is something all juniors can learn from. He comes with a plan to the course each day knowing exactly what he is going to practice, and how he is going to practice it. From short game to full swing, he is constantly working his plan to improve. The biggest part to his success over the past year has been his off-season training. Jack doesn’t take time off; he continues to work on his swing and putting indoors in the off-season which keeps him sharp 12 months of the year.”

Taylor played his first round at TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley carding a six over par 78 and is tied for 18th on the leaderboard.
