Pro golfer Christine Wong

Congratulations to Christine Wong, winner of the DCM PGA Women's Championship of Canada. The tournament concluded today (Aug. 31, 2021) at Oshawa Golf & Curling Club in Oshawa, Ontario. It was staged by the PGA of Canada.

Christine fired a 69 in the final round to finish at 5-under-par. She was the only golfer to finish the tournament under par, and won by five strokes over the runner-up.

This victory comes little more than a month since a previous big win for Wong. She claimed the 2021 Glencoe Invitational, an invitation-only tournament in Calgary, Alberta, in July, earning one of her biggest tournament paydays.

Wong is a very busy golfer. She is an instructor at University Golf Club in Vancouver, British Columbia, a club that is practically in the neighborhood she grew up in. She also works with KidSport BC helping underprivileged kids get involved in the game of golf. And she also manages to find time to coach the golf teams at a local junior college and, with her sister, also a golf pro, to help run a local junior girls tour. It's a wonder she can fit in practice time and tournament play.

Christine was the two-time high school champ of British Columbia growing up in Richmond. She played her college golf at San Diego State, where she was a four-time tournament winner.

While in college, she made the cut in the 2010 U.S. Women's Open, and won the British Columbia Women's Amateur Championship twice. Wong turned pro in 2013 and was a rookie on the Symetra Tour in 2014. But by the following year she was ready for a break from the game. In 2017, she decided to get back at it, and has enjoyed professional success — both as a club and teaching pro and as a tournament player in Canada — ever since. Her other tournament victories in recent years include the Vancouver Open women's title in 2019 and the 2020 PGA of B.C. Women's Championship.
