Logan Yanick will be golfing for the Sam Houston Bearkats in NCAA Div. 1 in 2015.

Courtenay’s Logan Yanick is joining the Sam Houston State men’s golf program in 2015. The Bearkats compete in the Southland Conference of NCAA Div. 1.

Yanick was one of four signings announced by men’s golf coach Brendt Kieschnick last week. “I am very excited about this class and being able to bring these talented players to our program. All four of these players can come in and challenge the starting lineup,” Kieschnick said. “They all possess strong ball-striking skills, tough mental games and very mature short games. I’m most excited because they will join a talented team of players and help to build on our goals and standards of winning tournaments, conference championships, and being a post-season team. We are excited for the future of Bearkat golf.”

A graduate of Mark R. Isfeld Secondary School, Yanick was ranked No. 14 in Canada in 2015 Class by Junior Golf Scoreboard and ranked No. 20 overall in Canada at the end of summer 2014.

He finished second at prestigious 2014 CN Future Links Western Championship with rounds of 76-70-69 and was ninth at 2014 CJGA BC Junior Open. Other highlights included a 43rd place finish at the 2014 Canadian Junior Boys Championship,  a third at the 2013 PNJA Boys Junior and second at the 2013 NWJGT Palouse Ridge/WSU Championship.

“Logan comes to us with the most national junior golf experience. As a junior in 2013, Logan narrowly missed the Canadian National Junior Team and has spent most of his junior career ranked in the top 10 in Canada for his class,” Kieschnick said.

“Logan possesses a fluid golf swing and can take it low. As a junior, he posted numerous rounds in the 60s in Canada’s national tournaments. He has a very calm demeanor on the golf course and his success and experience at the national level will help us win Div. 1 championships,” the coach added.”
