Listowel golfer secures spot at Paris Olympics

A golfer from a small town close to the region is headed to Paris this summer to represent Canada.

Corey Connors, a native of Listowel, Ontario, qualified for the Olympic games after his performance at the US Open last week.

Connors finished even at the tournament, good for ninth place overall.

Brett Maue, general manager of the Listowel Golf Club, says everyone back home still keeps a close eye on Connors’ career.

“Everybody was on watch, knowing what had to happen, and just proud that he was able to get the job done and really put four solid days together,” said Maue.

Connors is still a member of the Listowel Golf Club.

“He actually just built a house on the golf course here,” said Maue. “He still calls Listowel home here when he has some time off in the summer.”

It will be his second appearance at the Olympic games, after competing in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, where he finished 13th.

Winnipeg native Nick Taylor will join Connors in representing Canada at the Olympic games this summer.
