Conner Kozak – Assistant Professional

ckozak@golfbc.com

At an early age of about 8 or 9 years old, Conner began to develop a strong passion for the sport of golf. This passion only grew stronger into his teens as he began to notice continual improvement in his game and in competition. Following a junior golf career highlighted by several championships and top finishes in high level competition, Conner had the privilege of being recruited to play varsity golf at the University of British Columbia. While pursuing a degree in Kinesiology, he was named team captain for three out of his four years on the team. During his time on the team, Conner was able to help lead the T-Birds to numerous tournament wins and national championships.

Now as a professional, he believes in growing the game at all levels of play and is driven by providing the opportunity for others to love the game, just as it was once given to him.

As an Olympic silver medalist and 3x Olympian with 22 World Cup medals and 4 World Championship titles, I know what it takes to be the best.  While these metrics would appear to define me, it is in fact the values and lessons behind the medals that now serve as the foundation I am passionate to share with others.  My mission is to propel golfers to the top of the leaderboard.
