Sure, Mike Belle is excited about making his debut on the PGA Tour Canada-Mackenzie Tour circuit at the season-opening Canada Life Open at Point Grey Golf & Country Club. Almost as excited as his dad.
When Belle finally earned his Mackenzie Tour status in what was his third attempt at qualifying school earlier this month, he knew right away who he wanted by his side at Point Grey. He asked his dad, Ralph, who introduced him to the game 20 years ago at Vancouver Golf Club, to caddie for him.
The two of them, often accompanied by Belle’s mom, Kim, have played more rounds than they can count over the past couple of decades.
