Andrew's Long Drive

Combatting Stigma × empowering youth

Something much bigger than golf... 

 

In partnership with both the Canadian Junior Golf Association and Kids Help Phone, Andrew’s Long Drive aims to fight the stigma by increasing the understanding of how to recognize mental health problems and illnesses.

Assembled as a peer support and mentorship strategy, the program aims to empower Canada's young golfers through a traditional junior clinic and interactive chat integrated with innovative mental health awareness and prevention initiatives. 

Where

July 24th - Lakeridge Links Golf Club, Whitby, ON

What

A junior initiative aimed to:

1- Promote youth golf development

2- Engage youth in conversation about mental health to combat the stigma

3- Raise funds for Kids Help Phone and their incredible work across Canada.

Why

Sharing Andrew's experience to empower youth to understand what mental health means to them and instigate change in how it's perceived in the future

Undoubtedly one of Canada’s top talents, Andrew brings a unique sense of perseverance and personality to the game that challenges conventional wisdom. Understated things; such as his larger than life personality and accessibility breakdown the barriers commonly associated to a professional golfer and provide a hint of relativity to all Canadian’s. An unwavering commitment to inspiring hope among Canadians and promoting change in the face of mental illness has allowed Jensen’s personal brand to maintain it’s upward trajectory within the Canadian sport landscape.
