Eddie Reid, TGI Golf Managing Director, said: "Every year the young assistants continue to raise the bar, setting new standards. This season has been no different with some fantastic achievements from these extremely promising PGA Professionals of the future.

"Congratulations to all those assistants who have collected awards and I wish them all the best for their future careers."
