Golf Mourns Loss Of Jerry Anderson

The PGA of Canada – Ontario Zone is deeply saddened by the passing of Teaching Professional Gerald “Jerry” Anderson.

Anderson, a teaching professional at Credit Valley Golf and Country Club, passed away on March 9. He was 62.

Born in Montreal, Anderson won the PGA Championship of Canada in 1987. He became the first Canadian to win on the European Tour when he shot a score of 27-under-par at the Ebel European Masters – Swiss Open in 1984. That 72-hole score was a record on the European Tour until Ernie Els shot a 29-under-par score at the 2003 Johnnie Walker Classic.

Anderson finished ninth on the European Tour Order of Merit in 1984. He represented Canada at the Alfred Dunhill Cup in 1985 and at the World Cup in 1983, 1987, and 1989. Anderson was inducted into the PGA of Canada Hall of Fame in 2016, and the Ontario Golf Hall of Fame in 2002.

A Gathering of Remembrance will be held on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., T. Little Funeral Home & Cremation Centre, 223 Main Street, Cambridge, Ontario.
