Pochylko nominated for Sask Sport award

Saskatoon’s Chase Pochylko is being recognized by Sask Sport Inc. for his tremendous season on the golf course.

On Wednesday the 17-year-old was named one of the finalists for Youth Male Athlete of the Year for 2021.

Pochylko competed at both the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship and the Canadian Junior Boy’s Championship. He missed the cut by just one stroke in the men’s event and finished in 69th place at the boy’s national event.

He was the winner of the Saskatchewan Junior Order of Merit Tour in 2021 and had his season capped by winning his age group at the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) National Championship in British Columbia over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Pochylko is a finalist alongside baseball player Carson Hindmarsh.
