PGA of Alberta Teacher of the Year Finalist 2012

Hello friends,

I am proud to announce that I have been nominated for, and now a finalist for the PGA of Alberta Teacher of the Year 2012! I feel very honored to be a finalist, but more excited for my students. I have gotten some tremendous feedback this year, some huge successes and improvements. I learned so much about my own philosophy, teaching style, goals for my career and motivation to continue playing competitively.

When I learned that I was a finalist, my first thoughts were who to thank..how typical.. But seriously, that’s what it was. Then I truly realized how long that list would be, even if it only pertained to my golf teaching career.

Ages 5-14

Kevin Snell
Kerry Ward
Greg McGarry

Ages 15-19

Jim Jempson
Norm Gray, Ken Wasslen and Phil Kerbrat – 3 amateurs at Willow that taught me how to compete.

Ages 19-25

Ted Webster
Paul Horton
Randy Robb
Matt Rollins
Bryan Carbery
Jay Myren
Brian Kollman
Rob Connelly
Stephen Ames
Henry Brunton

and literally hundreds of Canadian Tour professionals that helped me along the way, notably,
Mitch Gillis
Stu Anderson
Mike Mezei
Kris Wasylowich
Scott Stiles

Ages 26-29

Brian Benedictson
Mark Sweeney
John Graham
Alex Riggs
Jason Sutton
Jason Helman
Glenn Cundari
Robin Bauer
Paul Balsom
Alan Robertson

If you didn’t make this list, do not panic. It means you are either one of hundreds more people that have helped me progress and succeed in this game, or your role is more important than worrying about being part of a list.

Thanks all for helping me.

Cheers!
