Canadian PGA Member named for second straight time as one of North America’s top instructors.

ACTON, ON  (March 16, 2007)—The Canadian PGA is pleased to congratulate Class A Member Henry Brunton of Stouffville, Ont., for being honoured a second time by GOLF Magazine as one of the Top-100 Teachers for 2007-2008.

Brunton was also recognized in the magazine’s biennial rating of teaching excellence in 2005-2006. He is the first Canadian Professional to be named among the publication’s listing of top golf instructors.

“We are happy for Henry and proud to see his significant expertise and contributions recognized by GOLF Magazine,” said Warren Crosbie, President of the Canadian PGA.

“Henry has contributed greatly to the Canadian PGA through his work helping develop the Teaching Coaching Certification Program, as an important member of the task force for the Long Term Player Development Guide, and more.”

Brunton, 41, was named 2003 Canadian PGA of Ontario Teacher of the Year. The native of Kemptville, Ont., has been the Head Coach of the Royal Canadian Golf Association’s Canadian National Team since 1999.

He has worked at some of Canada’s finest golf clubs including Eagles Nest, Angus Glen, Glen Abbey, Royal Montreal, Lionhead, Emerald Hills and Rideau View.

“I am thrilled to again be recognized with this esteemed group and look forward to learning from my peers,” said Brunton. “As a teacher, it is indeed an honour.”

Brunton assisted in the creation of the Long Term Player Development Guide, a comprehensive initiative developed by the RCGA in partnership with the Canadian PGA and Sport Canada.

The complete Top-100 Teachers list appears in the current March 2007 issue of GOLF Magazine.
