Braden Wheeler of Carleton Place, Ontario is continuing to thrive on the golf course since making the move to Goldey Beacom College.
Wheeler had a strong two seasons at Southeast Community College in Nebraska but this year transferred to complete his degree in Delaware where Goldey Beacom competes in NCAA Division II.
It has been a good fit.
At the recent Jefferson Rams Classic in Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, Wheeler closed with a final round 73 to share individual medalist honors with two other players.
It helped his Lightning team to a third place finish.
The placing is Wheeler’s fourth top-ten individual finish this school season.
Now in his Junior year, Wheeler was a standout player back in Ontario. He was a 5-time junior club champion at Deep River Golf Club.
He is studying Sport Management at Goldey-Beacom where he will be joined on the team by Hunter McGee, another Ottawa-area product, this Fall.
