Brendan Seys Turns Pro, Forgoes Final NCAA Season Due To COVID-19
After a stellar career playing golf for Wayne State University, Brendan Seys had planned to try his luck for his final season of NCAA eligibility with the University of Nevada.
All of that changed when COVID-19 hit, ravaging the USA.
Seys decided to forgo his season of NCAA DI golf, and turn pro instead.
Seys is currently playing on the Toronto Players Tour and has had several Top 10 finishes, including a 6th place finish at National Pines in late July, and a 10th place finish at Saugeen this August 3 and 4.
Seys had been excited to participate at the University of Nevada before COVID-19.
“It was a great fit for me, I know four Canadian guys on the team from junior golf and the coach is great,” said Seys of the move to play NCAA Division I golf for the University of Nevada Wolfpack.
Unfortunately for Seys, a UCC graduate, who was the GLIAC Golfer of the Year last season, it wasn’t to be.
After four successful seasons at Wayne State, Seys leaves the school with a plethora of memories, not to mention a degree in finance.
“This past year at Wayne State was a lot of fun,” said Seys. “Not only because of our team’s success but just the overall experience of playing at the level that we did. For me, receiving the accolades just proves that hard work does pay off in the long run; always excited to see what the future holds when you work hard.”
Seys was also on the Division II PING Midwest All-Region team, Division II PING second-team All-American, and was named to the All-GLIAC First Team.
“My experience at Wayne State was fantastic – I met so many great individuals and formed lifelong relationships. Living in a big city like Detroit was also fun, it was nice to get out of the small town and see what the big city had to offer. I will never forget my days at Wayne State, I throughly enjoyed it.”
Next up for Seys is the Mackenzie Tour – PGA Tour Canada, where he’ll participate in two events in September at TPC Toronto.
