Over the years, there has been a fair bit of golf talent to come out of West Central Saskatchewan.
Cort Tunall is the latest athlete from the area preparing to make his way south for school next year and compete at the collegiate level for golf at the University of Houston-Victoria. He now joins Kindersley native's Brody Istace, who just recently finished his career for the CIU Rams, Connor Tate, who golfed down in Arizona, and Kyle Wiebe, who spent his time in a polo with the Valley City State University Vikings.
Tunall is excited for the opportunity, and talked about his recruiting process.
"It's called NCSA. You sign up, get a profile, and can talk to coaches. They get your name out there."
He owes a lot of this journey to his step-dad Rob.
"He was the one who taught me how to golf when I was like 10 years old. If it weren't for Rob I probably wouldn't be where I am here honestly."
Some of Tunall's accomplishments include competing at the Junior Boys National Championship in New Brunswick when he was 15, and a number of impressive finished in Saskatchewan events in the years since. Hitting the gym helped Tunall towards his scholarship, and the next step will now take place later this summer when sets off to tee it up in Texas.
