From a very young age I knew what I wanted and was determined to become a Golf Teaching Professional. I am Bonnyville Alberta born and began swinging the club at the age of 5 but did not play a full round until about the age of 10. My two older brothers motivated me to continue my path along the road to a golfing career. I am very grateful for the mentors I have had during my 12 years in the business with Dean Sklarenko teaching me the skills to acquire my most recent job as a Head Professional. I have a great passion to help both beginner and avid golfers find their own swings with adaptive training techniques. I may not hit the driver very well but I am a short game wizard!! 

Q. What do you enjoy most about the game and the business of golf?
It makes everything worth while when I have a Member or Junior golfer come into the shop and say WoW!! Just shot my best round EVER!!
Q. What would you be doing if you weren’t a Golf Professional?
If I was not a Golf Professional I would be trying to be an Outrider for Chuckwagon Racing, or maybe a Highschool Math Teacher, or maybe a Professional Fishing Guide... Golf was at the top of this long list!
Q. What is your favourite golf course in the world?
One course that I try to play at least once a year is only a three hour drive from Lethbridge. The Wilderness Club in Eureka Montana holds a place in my heart.
Q. Who is your favourite PGA Tour player?
I was born and raised in the ERA of Tiger!!! Enough said...
Q. What is the first club you take out of your bag on the driving range?
Whether it is teaching a lesson or warming up for a round of golf I always pull out the 7Iron. This is influenced strongly by Roy McAvoy from the movie Tin Cup. If you ever find your 7Iron upside down in your bag it just means ZoobyGolf is one of your big
Q. What is the most number of holes of golf you have played in one day?
54 holes daily as a junior was pretty easy. Now that I am past my teens I try to restrict it to 18 Holes.
Q. What significant accomplishments are you most proud of?
I will always be most proud of passing my PAT tied for the lowest round in a torrential downpour day 2 with my Dad Walt Zubiak caddying for me!
