Yohann Benson
Professional Golfer & Instructor

“My love and passion for the game was instantaneous”

Yohann joined as a member the beautiful Whitlock Golf and Country Club where his grandfather Tom Benson was a member for over 50 years. 

After a brief but successful amateur career, Yohann left for the United States to improve his game and to see first hand how the best players in the world train and play.

His first taste of international competition happened in 2008 when he joins the Mackenzie Tour and qualifies to play in one of golf’s most prestigious events, The U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, the first time he rubs elbows with the greats of the game.

Yohann stopped competing full time in 2013 to become a caddie on the PGA Tour.

For the next 5 years, Yohann spent most of his days surrounded by the best players and teachers the game has to offer and learned the trade of becoming an instructor.

That said, 2019 was a year of great transition for Yohann.

With the support and encouragement from his colleagues on the PGA Tour, Yohann accepted RDS’s offer to become a golf analyst on TV and also became a Golf Professional at the prestigious Laval-Sur-Le-Lac Golf Club. He quickly established himself as a leader in teaching the game and was voted Player of the Year by his peers of the PGA of Quebec for 2019.
