TROON GOLF SHOP - Gordon McKinlay PGA Professional
Gordon McKinlay PGA Professional

I was born in Scotland's capital Edinburgh "a few years ago" and became involved in the great game of golf at an early age. After qualifying as a PGA Professional, I worked at Merchants of Edinburgh GC then Rothesay GC on The Isle of Bute, before settling in Troon in 1990. I was very proud to serve as Chairman of Tartan Golf International. My favourite clubs (at the moment) are my Callaway Driver & my long putter. The course I most enjoy playing (and I have played a few) is the great Open venue of Turnberry's magnificent Ailsa course.

I was born in Sorn, in Ayrshire, I joined the Ballochmyle GC as a Junior and have loved the game ever since.  I now live in Prestwick where the first Open was held. The inaugural tournament was restricted to professionals and attracted a field of eight golfers who played three rounds of Prestwick's twelve-hole course in a single day. Willie Park, Sr. won with a score of 174, how times have changed.
 
Whilst I was training to become a PGA Professional I won the award of being top PGA Assistant of the year twice.
 
I now have a great fondness for teaching golf and we have set up a great Junior Golf programme here at Troon Golf Shop. My other love in the game is putting, I am an official Putter Nutter!
(Check out our putting tips below)
I love my Callaway clubs and my absolute favourite golf course is Royal Dornoch. We have a wonderful golf complex here at Troon, where else in Scotland would I see 3 courses start & finish in front of my office.

I was born in Linthouse,Glasgow, Scotland. But have lived in Ayr for 15 years now and been in golf retail since moving to Ayrshire.
 
There is no better feeling than fitting out a customer and getting the clubs that suit their swing best. I play Taylor Made clubs myself and love to play Ayr Belleisle golf course.
