Ward Pateman started cleaning clubs at the Prince George Golf & CC in the summer of 2008. Quickly discovering a passion for the golf industry, Ward moved into the pro shop for the following two summers. Ward moved to Kelowna and started working in the Golf Shop at the Okanagan Golf Club in 2011.
After four years at OGC Ward was given the opportunity to start fitting clubs for Adams Golf, which was under the umbrella of adidas Golf and TaylorMade Golf at the time. 2016 marked the first year that Ward started fitting clubs for TaylorMade Golf and he acquired his “Master Fitter” certification in early 2017.
Ward spends most of his time in the winter months on the ice as a hockey referee. He is a 9-year veteran of the WHL as well as having the opportunity to referee the AHL in the 2018-19 season. Ward also referees the BCHL and is a referee coach from Junior B down to Novice. He volunteers his time with Kelowna Minor Hockey to assign and support the brand-new referees aged 13-16 years old.
Ward has a passion for creating the best experience possible for his customers at the TaylorMade Performance Centre. He will assess your current clubs as well as make recommendations for new clubs while explaining the major difference between old and new.
“TaylorMade Custom Fitting takes products from the Best Performance Golf Brand in the World makes them even better.”
