Moe Norman, Apprentice Professional of the Year Award
Is the highest honour the association can bestow on a working Apprentice Professional whose total contributions to the game best exemplify the PGA of Canada Apprentice Professional. This award embraces a wide range of services executed by the club professional.
Arguably the greatest ball striker in the history of golf, Moe Norman is one the game’s true legends. Before turning professional in 1957, Norman won two-straight Canadian Men’s Amateur Championships in 1955 and 1956. As a professional, he won the PGA Championship of Canada twice (1966, 1974) and captured the PGA Seniors’ Championship of Canada a remarkable eight times—including a run of seven in a row from 1979-1985. He also represented at the World Cup in 1971. Norman was inducted into the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame in 1995 and the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame in 2006.
