An exciting addition to the luggage will have to be claimed by Elmwood Golf and Country Club head pro Jeff Chambers, upon re-entry into Canada.

As announced earlier this month, Chambers was going to be awarded the PGA of Canada 'Ben Kern' Coach of the Year in Orlando, Fla.

That was made official last night at PGA of Canada's awards night, run in conjunction with the high-profile PGA Merchandise Show.

Chambers took to Facebook to share the good news once the hardware was in his hands, with the following a snippet of that post:

"Can’t express truly how much I appreciate everyone that is such a big part of my golf career. No possible way to thank everyone... just know I appreciate all the support and I promise that I will work harder going forward to make golf a bigger part of everyone’s life. Tonight really hit home as far as feeling the support of so many. Thanks again to everyone that’s part of my journey and you all matter and mean so much to me! Love my work"
