About Gord Burns and His Support Staff

Gord Burns Swinging

Gord Burns

• Head Teaching Professional at GBurns Golf School
• PGA of Canada Class “A”Certified Instructor
• Canadian Tour member (1999-2003)
• Trackman training and Boditrak Certified

Inspired by his mother and father, Gord Burns first started swinging a golf club at the age of 3. Gord started competing in golf tournaments at the age of 11, and has never looked back. Gord won the GAO Bantam Championship at the age of 12, the GAO Juvenile Championship at the age of 14, and the GAO Junior Championship at the age of 16. He traveled across the US and had much success against his American counterparts earning himself a spot as a Rolex AJGA junior All-American with the likes of Tiger Woods, Justin Leonard, and Stewart Cink in 1990. His record as a junior enabled him to attain a golf scholarship to NCAA division 1 Miami University. There, he studied Sport Organization which involved a variety of courses such as psychology of sport, children and youth in sport, motor skill learning and development, etc. These courses gave Gord a broad range of knowledge and a better understanding of how to properly teach people of varying age and skill levels. Gord was on the traveling team at the university where they won the MAC conference championship in his freshman year. Gord turned professional in 1997 and earned his Canadian Tour Card in 1999. He was a member of this tour for 5 years until 2003. While on tour he was was able to play alongside some of the current PGA tour pros during his time on this tour. Such stars as Jason Bohn, Ken Duke, Aaron Oberholser, Nathan Green, Pat Perez, Ian Leggatt, and Matt Kuchar to name a few. Gord was medallist of the CPGA playing ability test and although he did not win during his time on the Canadian Tour he was able to chalk up many pro-am and mini-tour event victories, as well as earning a spot as low qualifier into the 2002 Bell Canadian Open. During his professional career he has been able to learn exponentially from some of the world’s best players and instructors. Gord brings to you many years of playing and teaching experience that will ultimately improve your game regardless of your skill level. Over the past 15 years of his teaching career, Gord has evolved and adapted to the use of modern technologies such as trackman, boditrak, and blast motion as well as a complete understanding of the biomechanics of the golf swing.  He specializes in the development of junior tournament players looking to attain the highest levels of golf competition with an interim goal of achieving a golf scholarship. He teaches players who have won professional golf tournaments as well as those who have never touched a club.

Gord still enjoys competing on a regular basis, and firmly believes in leading by example to inspire the students he coaches!! By competing in professional tournaments first hand and performing  ‘under the gun’, Gord is able to help his competitive students based on real life experiences. Gord finished 3rd on the PGA of Ontario money list in 2017 with a 2nd place finish in the PGA of Ontario Championship with rounds of 70-72, and a t-9th PGA of Canada Championship moving him up the PGA of Canada player rankings to #17. Gord and Rick Willan teamed up to win the Head Pro/Assisstant pro this past summer. One of the highlights of Gord’s season was 2 tournament victories, one at the annual Panama City Beach Pro-am shooting rounds of 73-68-72-65 for a 10 under total and the other at Maple Downs Country Club shooting 2 under 70. Cobble Beach, Oakdale, and Credit Valley Pro-ams saw Gord finish runner-up in each of these events shooting rounds of 67-66-70 respectively.

cynthia
Cynthia Zhao
• Cynthia’s hard work over her junior career has paid off as she earned herself a golf scholarship to Hofstra University in Long Island New York. Look for Cynthia to continue on her journey with some great golf in 2018 as she prepares for her first semester this fall.
kelly
Kelly Zhao
• 11 year old Kelly Zhao (Cynthia’s younger sister) looks to further her dominance in her age group. She is a 3 time participant at the World Junior played in Pinehurst, and is never out of the top 3 in any tournament she plays locally.
Rasea
Rasea Sheikh
• Raesa broke through this past summer as she won the GAO U15 Championship with rounds of 72-76. Her persistence and hard work landed her an invitation to be on Team Ontario. She displays great power (95 mph clubhead speed) and once she develops the closing skills, she will be a dominant force.
Ava-Koukofikas
Ava Koukofikas
• Ava is a wonderfully talented 14 year old that worked very hard last summer and earned herself a 4th place finish at the GAO U15 Championship. I feel like with a good mindset paired with a great work ethic, she can be a top junior in the province for years to come.
ben-kim
Ben Kim
• Ben is a very talented player who has taken some tournament scores sub 70 and found himself in the winner’s circle on the CJGA tour. Ben has increased his precision and swing speed this winter and plans on taking his game south of the border to showcase his talents amongst the most talented American players.
Kyle-Corrigan
Kyle Corrigan
• 18 year old Kyle has only been playing golf for a few years and had already shaved his handicap down to a 2. He is a naturally gifted athlete that plans on taking his game to the top of some leaderboards this summer. This young man has a great work ethic and a will to succeed that is a rare quality and only help him reach his goals faster.
Noah-Campbell
Noah Campbell
• 14 year old Noah is passionate about golf and his swing and skills around the green are very impressive. Look for Noah to win some tournaments this year. His low tournament round was 72 last year, and I believe he will be shooting many low 70s rounds this year. Once his confidence kicks in, look out!
Roycee-Southerland
Roycee Southerland
• 13 year old Roycee got her feet wet in tournament play last year for the first time and managed to bring her scores into the 90s by season’s end. Her swing is getting really good and I expect a dramatic lowering of tournament scores that will leave everyone shell shocked by season’s end!
Angi-Lu
Angi Lu
• 16 year Angi Lu has been working really hard over the winter months and I expect her to be in the 70s regularly by season’s end in tournament play!!
Andre-and-Alex-Zhang
Andre and Alex Zhang
• 12 year old and 10 year old Andre and Alex Zhang started playing in tournaments last year and I expect them to be contending in their respective age groups this season!
Haden-Wang
Haden Wang
• 8 year old Haden Wang is a special talent that swung his first club at the age of 6 and has now drawn the attention of many for how good he hits it. He won a few events last year, and I expect he will win a lot of golf tournaments for years to come!!
