Welcome to McCarrol Golf

Welcome to the 2018 golf season!

I’m very pleased and proud to announce that I’m now the Director of Instruction for the newly created Performance Academy at Beacon Hall Golf Club in Aurora, ON.

The creation of The Performance Academy is a bold initiative designed to become a major differentiator for the club and further extend its image as one of the premiere private golf clubs in Canada. The plan has a two-phased approach; phase I will set the groundwork for a world class Academy while Phase II would bring to fruition a 2 or 3 bay, state of the art, permanent facility capable of operating 12 months per year. Establishing the Performance Academy at one of Canada’s premier clubs will be a crowning moment in my career and I could not possibly be more excited about the opportunity I have in front of me!!

I look forward to working with the Director of Golf Drew Smythe on a daily basis to significantly enhance the member and guest experience as we roll out all of the new programming, curriculum and services associated with Performance Academy over the next couple of seasons.

I will still of course be very busy teaching and coaching the game. Lesson bookings are done through my online scheduler, which is very user friendly and available 24/7. Simply click on the “Book a Lesson” tab on my home page above and either register or log in. Once you have created a profile you can manage your bookings at your convenience any time of day or night. For details on how to book a lesson click here.

Most importantly, if you are unable to find a time that works for you please contact me directly and I will do my very best to accommodate you.

My best wishes for a great season filled with lots of great golf, camaraderie and a personal best or two!
Kindest regards,

Teaching Philosophy/Bio

Bruce has been a member of the PGA of Canada since 1977. 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.
