Durham College has a real ace with Durham Lords golf coach Tyler Martin. He has been honored as the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association coach of the year for the second time. He won the title for the first time in 2014. His peers on the team and the athletic department nominated Martin for this award.
Lord’s golfer Lucas Pichl, whom placed second at the Georgian Invitational, says Martin was intimidating at first, but once he got to know the coach he realized the coach was very nice and personable.
Martin is not only the coach, he is a graduate of the Durham program and won OCAA individual titles in 2004 and 2006.
Martin says he strives to help the players keep the right mindset and help them grow as golfers.
“I am extremely grateful to be selected again as the OCAA coach of the year. It makes it extra special because it is voted on by my peers. I’m very thankful,” said Martin.
