Hello, my name is Braeden Cryderman. I am a 24 year old professional golfer from Huntsville, Ontario, Canada. I have lived in the United States for 5 years now and currently reside in Hilton Head Island, SC.
Prior to turning professional I played division 1 college golf at UNC Charlotte. Many injuries occurred while playing college golf including 2 back surgeries as well as shoulder surgery. Out of my 4 years in college I missed half of that time because of my health. I was finally healthy for my senior year and was honored as a first team All Atlantic-10 member and achieve the honor of being in the top 10 in the Canadian amateur golf rankings. There was a point where doctors said I would never play at a high level again. It was nice to be able prove them wrong!
I have just recently turned professional and was not able to obtain the sponsor opportunities that I would have hoped due to not playing enough events because of my injuries.The unfortunate part of professional golf is it is very expensive to do the necessary things to progress your career. Now I have been healthy for over 14 months and I am in pursuit of my PGA Tour dream. I am trying to raise money in order to afford to go to Web.com Q-School which nowadays is the only way to secure status on the PGA Tour. I would really appreciate any support you can give and in the mean time I will doing everything in my power to make a dream a reality.
