I love how he has remained so connected to Lakefield College. This is the school he went to when he spent a term or two overseas during his high school year. He has visited the school regularly ever since and gone to various fundraising events in other parts of the world.

A couple of years ago it was a dinner in LA and there are usually one or two events in London but Canada itself gets a visit every time he goes to Canada.

I was just reading about "Golfcourse Diplomacy" in the DM.

It mentions Andrew is "qualified to a professional level" at golf. Which led me to wonder do we know his handicap?

And what does it mean to be "qualified to a professional level?" Here in the US it refers to several things - being a pro at a course in charge of the facility and lessons there OR having competed at a professional tournament (one with professional prize money). Being a playing pro requires qualifying for your pro card and I've oversimplified it. But one thing is sure, devoted golfers are not pros. In fact the golf industry survives because of the overwhelming numbers of amateurs that play and watch it.

I'd never heard that Andrew gave lessons at his home course or that he had competed as a professional. Anyone know?

I don't know his handicap but Andrew does play a lot of golf, he always has.

He most certainly is the family's go to golfer.

I think it only means he plays a good enough game of gold that he would be able to be competitive with a group who play golf for a living.
