Bio

Known to be one of the game’s best ball strikers, Graham had a milestone year on the PGA TOUR in 2013, placing 8th in the FedExCup Playoffs, and ending the year with a breakthrough performance in his first Presidents Cup International team appearance. Graham continued this impressive play in the 2013/2014 PGA TOUR season, with six top 10 finishes. During the 2014/2015 PGA TOUR season, Graham recorded three top 10 finishes.

 

Graham was born in Weyburn, SK with a passion for hockey, fishing and, of course, golf. He attended Boise State University and is very passionate about Broncos football. He is also a huge hockey fan – and an avid Calgary Flames fan.

 

Graham and his wife Ruby are dedicated to supporting children’s causes, and in 2014 launched the Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation. Since launching the Foundation, Graham and Ruby have raised over $1 million for their charitable initiatives.

Driver & 3 Wood

“Being well-positioned off the tee allows me to strategically attack the rest of the hole. With my Titleist Driver and 3-Wood, I am able to shape the ball with a fade that carries far, but at the same time, is a controlled shot.”

Wedges

“I have been carrying this combination of Titleist Vokey wedges since just before the Presidents Cup. After the Presidents Cup, Titleist made a duplicate of my lob wedge so I could keep the original to commemorate those two hole-outs on 18.”

Putter

“I switched to this Scotty Cameron model because it gives me the most feel on the greens. I tend to putt my best when I rely on my eyes and use my feel to get the ball rolling on the line I have envisioned.”

Irons

“I started using this combination of Titleist CBs in the long irons and Titleist MBs in the short irons right before the 2013 FedExCup Playoffs. The little bit of forgiveness in the long irons and the performance of the short irons allows for a combination of feel and playability that best suits my game – it lets me work the ball and take advantage of scoring opportunities when they arise.”

“I swap out my 2-iron for a hybrid depending on the particular course we are playing and what type of shots I need. The hybrid allows for a lot of different shot selections but when I need a lower ball flight, such as in the Open Championship, I usually opt for the 2-iron.”.

“I have been playing a Titleist ball for as long as I can remember. I put my own unique stamp on it. My caddie Jules Trudeau marks my Pro V1x’s with a red Canadian maple leaf.”

Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation

Our mission at the Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation is focused on improving the health and wellness of children, as well as supporting the development of junior golfers at all stages. One of our main initiatives is the annual Graham Slam charity event that we host in my home province of Saskatchewan.

Graham Slam

2016

Dakota Dunes Golf Links, Whitecap, SK

The Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada has announced that SportBox Entertainment Group in partnership with the Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation will serve as the host organization of the SIGA Dakota Dunes Open, Saskatchewan’s Mackenzie Tour event, transitioning from eight years under VMC Sports & Entertainment Group.

     

SportBox Entertainment Group, a sport, lifestyle and entertainment firm that has business verticals in event management, consulting and talent representation, will assume operational control of the event. Graham DeLaet, a talent client of SportBox, will see his foundation as the driving force behind the event to raise funds for local charitable initiatives. SportBox Group, will work in collaboration with the Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation to ensure the event’s continued success, while integrating a strong community-centric focus.

     

With the event taking place in his home province of Saskatchewan, and DeLaet being an alumnus of the Mackenzie Tour, it was a natural fit for him to get involved. The Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation, which Graham started with wife Ruby in 2014, will work with SportBox to identify a local cause to support through the event to give back to the community. The Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation was launched with a central focus on supporting children’s health and wellness, as well as supporting the development of junior golfers at all levels. Since 2011, Graham and Ruby DeLaet’s charitable initiatives have raised over $1 million for causes and organizations across Canada including the Children’s Wish Foundation of Saskatchewan, the Ronald McDonald House of Saskatchewan, the Weyburn & District Hospital Foundation, the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan, and the Calgary Flames Foundation.

Bronco Pride Hockey Tunes Home Outdoors

Bronco Pride

Graham is a Boise State Bronco through-and-through, and attributes much of his success on the PGA TOUR to the mentorship and training he received as a member of the University’s golf team. A 2006 graduate with a degree in Physical Education, Graham has the honour of having the school’s award for male golfer of the year named after him. The Boise State athletics department also hosted a ceremony in 2014 to honour Graham’s professional achievement and relive his university accomplishments.

Hockey Enthusiast

Just like every kid growing up in small-town Canada, Graham dreamed of using these hands to control a puck in the NHL. While Graham’s focus eventually shifted to golf, his passion for hockey remains steadfast. Graham’s ‘Hockey Glove’ head cover is a favourite on TOUR and he is quick to tell anyone who will listen that the Calgary Flames are in fact Stanley Cup contenders.

GD’s Tunes

Graham enjoys a wide variety of music, but country is his go to either when travelling or working out in the gym. Stay tuned, Graham will be releasing a playlist of his favourite music shortly.

Home Is Where the Heart Is

Graham carries Canada and Saskatchewan in his heart wherever he goes, and at every opportunity heads home to Saskatchewan with his wife Ruby to visit friends, family, and all who have supported his journey. On the course Graham marks his Titleist Pro V1x’s with a Canadian maple leaf, and dons the national colours of red and white for the final round of every tournament he competes in to create a signature look referred to as #CanadianSunday.

Outdoorsman

To escape the grind of professional golf and relax away from the course, Graham often heads outdoors. Graham has hunted in far-away places such as Zimbabwe, and cites an Alaskan fishing adventure where he caught a 55 pound King Salmon as being the trip of a lifetime. Graham is respectful of nature and wildlife, and enjoys most the comradery of the experience. Many of Graham’s friendly rounds at his home course in Boise end up being decided by who caught the most largemouth bass from one of the courses ponds.
