Known to be one of the game's best ball strikers, Graham had a milestone year on the PGA TOUR in 2013, recording seven Top-10 finishes, placing 8th in the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and ending the year with a breakthrough performance in his first Presidents Cup International team appearance.

Graham continued this impressive play through the 2014 PGA TOUR season, with seven top 10 finishes, including two consecutive 2nd place results. Most recently, Graham recorded a T7 finish at the RBC Canadian Open, which earned him the Rivermead Trophy for Low Canadian at the event.

Graham was born in Weyburn, SK with a passion for hockey, fishing and, of course, golf. He attended Boise State University and is very passionate about Broncos football. He is also a huge hockey fan – and an avid Calgary Flames fan.

Graham and his wife Ruby are dedicated to supporting children's health and wellness and developing junior golf, and in 2014 launched the Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation. The unveiling was headlined by the Foundation's inaugural charity event, Graham Slam, which raised approximately $400,000 in its first year.

One of Canada's top-ranked golfers, Adam Hadwin will be leading a strong class of rookies on the PGA Tour in 2015.Having enjoyed considerable success early in his career, including two wins on PGA Tour Canada (then the Canadian Tour), Adam broke out in 2014 with his best year yet, catapulting him almost 500 spots in the Official World Golf Rankings.

His 2014 campaign included wins at the Web.com Tour's Chile Classic and Chiquita Classic, as well as year-end honours as the combined money list winner on the Web.com Tour, which secured Adam full status on the PGA Tour for the 2014/2015 season.

The Abbotsford, BC native rose to considerable acclaim back in 2011 when it looked like he might end the almost sixty-year Canadian victory drought at the RBC Canadian Open. In front of family and friends at Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club, Adam entered Sunday in second place, one stroke behind the leader, Bo Van Pelt, and had Canadians on the edge of their seats for most of the day. After falling out of contention early, he stormed back in dramatic fashion to make it close down the stretch. Adam would ultimately go on to finish in a tie for fourth, but not before endearing himself to many Canadians and golf fans around the world. His strong finish at the 2011 RBC Canadian Open also secured him his second consecutive Rivermead Trophy, an award recognizing the low-Canadian at the country's national open.

Interestingly, in addition to being one of Canada's top golfers, Adam is also a very talented baseball player who at one time considered pursuing a career in professional baseball instead of golf!

Off the course Adam remains very active in the community, most notably supporting the CHILD Foundation with his annual charity golf event in South Surrey, BC.

In 2015, Hearn collected eight Top 25 finishes, including four Top 10 results and narrowly being the first Canadian in over 60 years to win Canada’s national tournament – the RBC Canadian Open.

The aim will be to help create positive change by reducing the personal and social impacts of Alzheimer’s disease, and improve the care and quality of life of those individuals and families affected.

In 2014, Hearn made six Top 25 finishes, including three Top 10 results – T6 at the Honda Classic, T8 at the Valspar Championship, and T6 at THE PLAYERS Championship.

That same year, Hearn finished 2nd at the John Deere Classic in a playoff, T21 at the US Open and Memorial Tournament in addition to four other Top 25 finishes.

Rookie of the Year on PGA Tour Canada in 2002, the Brantford native has had a long and successful career spanning several professional tours.
