Q & A

“As the recipient of the William Kucey scholarship, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Golf Canada and its respective scholarship funders for the opportunity and support that you have provided through this scholarship and the tournaments that you organize. As a member of the University of Toronto’s men’s varsity golf team, I am very fortunate to have all the tools necessary not only to improve my golf game but also to discover myself in a competitive environment and develop a strong character that has helped me prosper on the course, academically and in my own personal life. This said, the William Kucey scholarship has lightened the financial burden that comes with post secondary studies and thereby allowed me to focus more on my performance in the class room and on the course.   Your help has inspired me to work hard so that I may continue to learn and develop as a student athlete and represent the core values of the Charles and Jane Kucey Foundation as well as the Golf Canada Foundation wherever I may be.” – Matthew Puzhitsky
