 2018 Professional Development Points

PROfile

Born into a strong golfing family set up my career as a golf professional. I turned pro in 1982 and went to work for my brother Don at the Shawnee Slopes Golf Club.I grew up at the Earl Grey Golf Club in Calgary Alberta. A golf club that allowed me to pick the range at 11 years old for ten cents a basket. To shag balls for Bob Charles and caddy for Nick Weslock and Moe Norman. My career has taken me to BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan,China and Arizona. I’m very thankful for the many juniors I have taught over the years and my staff members that went on to further their careers. I’m very proud of my children Stephen,Candace and Jared. 2017 saw the arrival of my grand daughter Octavia. My life partner Pat has 2 children Dustin and Kate. I’m grateful to be a member of the Canadian PGA and have a career that I truly love! The view from my office is my first tee.
