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 Gordie 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. Gordie turned professional in 1997 and earned his Canadian Tour Card in 1999. He was a member of this tour for 5 years until 2003. Gordie 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. 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 employs a wide range of teaching techniques dependant on one’s particular needs. His belief is that there are many methods to achieve the same result and identifying the right method for each particular student is his strength. In working with Gordie and practicing the drills and exercises given to you, along with the proper use of the trackman data, you will ultimately improve your game.
