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.

In 2016, Graham had the honour of representing Canada in the Olympics, as Golf returned to the Games for the first time since 1904. So far this season, Graham has recorded four top ten 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.”

“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.”

“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.

The Foundation is an extension of our previous charitable efforts, which have provided valuable charitable contributions to Golf Saskatchewan and the Weyburn & District Hospital Foundation.

Graham Slam

June 12, 2017

Riverside Country Club, Saskatoon, SK

Each year, the Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation holds their annual charity event in DeLaet’s home province of Saskatchewan – Graham Slam – to raise funds to improve children’s health and wellness and the development of junior golf across Canada.

   

Starting in 2017, Graham Slam will integrate a junior golf tournament into the event – the DeLaet Cup. Operated in conjunction with the Canadian Junior Golf Association, the DeLaet Cup will see qualifiers take place across Canada prior to the final event, with 24 of Canada’s top junior golfers gaining the opportunity to compete in the prestigious tournament. The qualifiers will produce 12 top juniors from the East and West coming together in Saskatchewan to play a Ryder Cup style match. DeLaet will be present throughout the tournament to watch the juniors’ performances and provide mentorship through clinics and golf talks.

   

Since 2013, Graham Slam has raised over $1 million for charitable organizations across Saskatchewan that reflect the Foundation’s mission. Previous beneficiary’s of the event include: The Children’s Hospital Foundation of SK, Ronald McDonald House of SK, Children’s Wish Foundation, Weyburn District Hospital Foundation, Golf Saskatchewan/Golf Canada, etc.

Off The Course

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.

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.
