                                   CANADIAN PGA UNVEILS STRATEGIC PLAN
                                   "A proud focus on a strong and united future"

                                   The Canadian Professional Golfers' Association (Canadian
                                   PGA) has released their 2009-2014 Association Strategic
                                   Plan which will chart the course for the Canadian PGA.

                                   The many and varied initiatives that the National body and
                                   Zones have undertaken has highlighted the need to work
                                   effectively and diligently together. The clarity of focus
                                   articulated in this plan is the result of dialogue and
                                   feedback formulated across the country over the past 18

                                   The golf environment continues to become increasingly
                                   complex. Challenges such as the economics of the
                                   industry, saturation of golf professionals in Canada and
                                   the expectations of the golfing public are examples of the
                                   need to readdress the Association's current position within
          the marketplace. With the creation of this Strategic Plan,
                                   the Association will adapt in order to thrive in the future.
