A class "A" member of the PGA of America, Bruce was born and raised in Carnoustie, Scotland, home of the 2007 British Open, within a prominent golfing family. His father Alex is featured in the landmark golf instruction book, "The Search for the Perfect Swing" and his great grand father was head pro at Cruden Bay Links, Scotland, in the late 1800's.

     Be yourself  ~ Be your best

I work with all skill levels from expert to beginners.
Identifying a student’s natural pattern of movement is the first thing I do.  Certified in Golf Bio-Mechanics I help my players build sound mechanics within their own existing golf swing. Between what you “have” and I “know” we will build your confidence from the range to the course

There is no one “perfect way” to swing a club but rather a set of fundamental principles. In the last decade technology has changed the way people teach and learn golf. What used to take years to learn can now take weeks because of visual aids and recorded feedback they can refer to anytime! Every lesson, I give, includes a personalized swing assessment complete with my audio coaching. In other words, every one of my students gets to have a “coach in their back pocket!”

These game enhancing tools are used on the PGA tour and I bring them to you! Whether you’re approaching the expert level or a new beginner, we will develop a program specifically designed for you.
