|George Knudson Tribute|
I first meet George Knudson in the spring of 1981. He was giving Assistant Golf Professionals a free clinic up at the Huntington Golf Club in Bolton Ontario.
Like many young pro’s, I was struggling with my golf game and was trying to find a way to swing the golf club that not only made sense to me, but would repeat more often then not.
In those days it was very hard to find a teaching pro that really knew what he was doing.
There we're’t Golf Academies or full time teaching professional in Canada, in fact, the CPGA didn't’t even have a classification of Teaching Pro until some time in the mid 1990’s.
So as a young assistant, I would learn from watching others, reading golf magazines, or books.
If I did take a lesson, the lesson would consist of the pro watching me hit a few balls, would going over some basics like grip. Alignment, etc, then they would just watch the ball and try to give me some kind of band aid to fix the result.
Knudson was the first to establish a golf school in Canada and I feel he lead the way for all these other teaching academies and learning centers that exists today.
George Knudson had a theory which was simple, and for me made more sense then anything else I was exposed to. After that session at Huntington, I saw immediate results and was hooked on the Knudson theory. I felt I now had at least an idea.
I continued to work with George, and felt that every time I had a session with him, I left with a better understanding of the golf swing.
Eventually, Knudson ask me to work for him at his location in Buttonville. It was the best experience of my life. George was very passionate about his teaching and wanted golfers at all levels, from all walks of live, to learn and enjoy the game of golf and wanted each and every one of his students to reach their individual potential as a player.
I remember when George asked me to work for him he said,” when you play the game for a living, your doing it for yourself, but when you teach the game for a living, its totally giving.” He said he got more satisfaction out of teaching the game then he ever got out of playing the game.”
I have now been teaching Knudson’s method for the past 25 years and have taught thousands of golfers develop a better understanding of the golf swing. My goal is to help keep George Knudson’s swing philosophy alive as well as the memory of a great man and good friend.
