Wes is a journeyman pro who grinded his way through the ranks, and along the way picked up 9 professional wins, including 5 Alberta Open titles and 4 wins on the Mackenzie Tour (PGA Tour Canada).

A fun tradition on the Golf is Mental blog is to prematurely predict the major champions for the entire season. With The Masters a little over a month away, I know you're all thinking about it, so maybe this will help kill some time before that magical week in April kicks off the meat of the 2016 season ...
It's getting to that exciting time of year when we writers pretend we know what we are talking about and try predict the future. That's right, major championship season is almost upon us! With The Masters only 3 weeks away, I figured this would be a good time to humiliate myself again with some moderately … Continue reading 2015 Major Championship Predictions
It's still pretty early in the 2014 season, but Augusta is going to come quick for a lot of players and the major championships will be underway. Tiger has looked rusty. So has Phil.
