Rockway Vineyards Partner David Hearn Finishes Consecutive PGA Tournaments In The Top-10

Not only can David Hearn make some great wine, but he's swinging a very hot golf club on the PGA Tour right now. Hearn, who partners with Rockway Vineyards to produce 2013 David Hearn Limited Edition Cabernet/Merlot (VQA) and 2015 David Hearn Limited Edition Chardonnay/Riesling (VQA), finished tied for 8th at the Travelers Championship this past Sunday. This result and his 10th place finish at the Fedex St. Jude Classic are his first two top-10s of the season.

Hearn attributes his brilliant results to his new swing, which required some growing pains to get accustomed to. From the TSN.CA article "Monday Cut Line: Hearn's new swing taking hold":

David Hearn is finding his swing at the right time. The Brantford, Ont., product finished tied for eighth at the Travelers Championship on Sunday, his second consecutive top-10. 

Those are also his only top-10 finishes of the year. Hearn has been struggling so far this season, with 10 missed cuts in 22 starts. He only missed 10 all of last year.

The reason for the mediocre play has been his decision to try and make some changes to his swing. It’s taken a while for those to grab hold, but he believes the long-term benefits will outweigh some of the short-term results.

Working with Canadian instructor Jeff Leishman, Hearn has diligently been trying to groove his improvements and the last two starts show that he may be on the right path.

David's golf game isn't his only skill being praised lately. Noted wine critic Rick Vansickle reviewed the 2015 David Hearn Chardonnay/Riesling at 88 points, saying: "Ontario Chardonnay and Riesling have been turning heads internationally for some time. I love how this floral blend, with its ripe melon and apple flavours and tangy acidity, allows both varieties to shine."

The wines are created in partnership with the David Hearn Foundation and support the Alzheimer Society of Canada, an organization whose important work is near to the hearts of both David and Rockway Vineyards. 

The Canadian golfer looks to continue his hot streak at the Quicken Loans National tournament over Canada Day weekend. We'll all be cheering on David here at Rockway Vineyards!

David Hearn's Limited Edition wines are available in our Wine Boutique or at the LCBO.
