Daniel Cluney has shifted his focus to the classroom, but hopes to stay involved in the golf industry when finished his degree.

Daniel Cluney hasn’t been spending much time honing his golf skills these days because his focus has shifted towards getting a degree, but he hopes to stay in the industry once his education has been secured.

The 21-year-old former junior golf star at Blomidon spent two years honing his skillset in Prince Edward Island while enrolled in the golf management program at Holland College.

He went to work in Ontario for a year after finishing up at Holland College, but this year he’s focused on being a student as he works toward a bachelor of applied management in business at the University of New Brunswick campus in Saint John.

He was allowed to transfer a lot of his credits from Holland College to UNB so he will come out of UNB with a degree in two years and then he hopes to find his groove in the golf industry.

He has played some pretty dandy golf courses while learning the ins and outs of what it takes to excel in the golf management industry so he’s going to look at his options when he has his degree in hand.

One particular area he’s interested in pursuing is the equipment side of the game. He would like to work with one of the big golf manufacturers, perhaps as a fitter, which is the area that excites him most at this juncture.

He sees himself as somebody working in a lab with a bunch of golf clubs and working with individuals to help find them the equipment best suited to meet their needs.

“When somebody comes in just kind of completely fitting them from top to bottom and getting them a set of clubs that works exactly right for them,” he said.

Golf was his passion growing up as youth in Corner Brook.

It appears golf will continue to maintain a big presence in his life moving forward.
