logos5 Welcome to my website! As the Director of Instruction for the Performance Academy at Beacon Hall please allow me to wish you the very best for the 2020 golf season! The Performance Academy is now an integral part of Beacon Hall, and most importantly is fulfilling its significant role in assisting the club to further differentiate and extend its image as one of the leading private golf facilities in Canada. I’m very proud to see how much the member and guest “experience” has been enhanced with the array of services and programs we offer that address performance, game improvement and injury prevention. We believe that there is a better golfer inside all of us and our success unlocking that potential is based upon science and key factors including; using the latest technology and techniques for analysis, standardizing our methodology and approach, customized professional golf instruction, personalized “golf specific” fitness programs plus access to club fit technicians who ensure the optimal fit and matrix in golf gear. Its important for you know that my overarching goal as the Director of Instruction has been and will always be to deliver “excellence” to golfers of all skill levels on a daily basis and do so in a warm, friendly and enjoyable atmosphere conducive to learning and most importantly…..having fun! The Performance Academy is scheduled to open on Saturday April 25, 2020 weather and turf permitting. If you are interested in working with me on your golf game and have questions please call me directly 416.616.3606 or email me otherwise please click on the “Book a Lesson” tab above (available as of April 1, 2020) to view my availability and make a booking. First time users will have to register to create a profile (name and email address). Once you have created a profile you can manage your bookings at your convenience 24/7 and the system automatically informs me of your bookings. Most importantly, if you are unable to find a time that works for you or you need assistance with the booking system don’t hesitate to contact me directly and I will do my very best to help and/or accommodate you. My best wishes for a great season filled with lots of great golf, camaraderie and a personal best or two! Kindest regards, Bruce.


Teaching Philosophy/Bio

Bruce has been a member of the PGA of Canada since 1973. In 2003 he earned Master Professional status, the highest distinction possible in the association. He was named to Golf Digest’s best teacher list in 2013-2014 and in February of 2005, he was named PGA of Canada Teacher of The Year, and in the Fall of 2004, he was selected as the PGA of Ontario’s Teacher of the Year. Bruce’s teaching philosophy is simple and based upon the following principals:

  • Every student must be assessed on an individual basis and be taught with an approach that takes into consideration age, gender, body type, physical and athletic ability, learning style and most importantly personal goals and lifestyle.
  • Regardless of skill level, it’s imperative that each student accept and understand the fact that “game improvement” is a “process” and the “process” must be logical in sequence and not shortcut. An approach that is haphazard or made up of “band aids” with no regard for science will only result in faulty mechanics and thus frustration and poor results.
  • The “game improvement equation” has many components, including, swing mechanics, the matrix and fit of one’s golf equipment, biomechanical function, golf specific fitness, mental makeup, nutrition, motivation, and desire, each of which, must be evaluated to achieve long term success.
  • Students will only excel if they are given a personalized strategy or plan that clearly indicates how to close the gap between “where they are” and “where they have to be” to reach their goals.
