Matt Bean's Professional Golf Journey

My Name is Matthew Bean and I am raising money in order to chase my dream and build my career in professional golf. A little background about myself; I began golfing competitively in Saskatoon, SK. where my coach, Jason Schneider, helped me fall in love with the game of golf and its competitive atmosphere at the young age of 11 years old. Following a move back to Canmore in 2015, I have represented Canmore G&CC and the Bow Valley for the past six years in amateur tournaments locally, provincially and nationally. My playing resume includes three Canadian Men’s Amateur Championships as well as representing Team Alberta on the Willingdon Cup Team at the 2019 Canadian Men’s Amateur. In 2019, I was one of three players to qualify to represent Alberta at the prestigious 2020 Pacific Coast Amateur Championship, however this competition was unfortunately cancelled due to the pandemic. I played for the Minot State University Beavers NCAA DII Golf Team from 2[phone redacted] where I was selected as an All-Conference golfer and helped lead our team to its highest NCAA DII Ranking ever in the fall of 2018 (52nd). I have worked hard on my game this past summer and fall in order to set myself up for my professional career and now we’re here! 

Initiating this career path requires a lot of start-up funding with a limited initial return. 

I have signed up for the Mackenzie Tour Qualifying tournament where the top-25 players gain status on the Mackenzie tour for the summer. If I place outside of the top-25 I have a backup plan of playing on the Dakota's Tour in July and August in order to play golf and work my name up the leaderboards in the professional golf atmosphere. The Mackenzie tour is the first step en-route to the PGA Tour and this year is a fabulous opportunity for me to advance my career. 

Thank you so much for your interest and help in me reaching my goal of playing professional golf.
