Graham Gunn is a soft spoken man who always, whether he wins or loses, takes the time to credit his fellow competitors for their play.
As a teacher at the White Sands Golf & Practice Centre, Graham has a steady following of students and a passion for teaching. He is known for his ability to assess a player down to the granular level, while communicating in a way that is straight forward and relevant. Committed to creating a customized program for each individual student, he enjoys helping his students to improve their swing, to meet their goals, and to share his love for the game.
As a man, Graham is devoted to his family and his faith, both of which are important parts of his life. As Graham suggests, "Take one day at a time. Don't get worried or anxious about anything."
As a player, Graham's overall record while in the PGA of Canada - Ottawa Zone is beyond comparison.
Let's begin with his PGA of Canada Head Professional of Canada Championship win in 2000 and his PGA of Canada Senior Championship win in 2006.
Within the Ottawa Zone Graham has to his credit 6 Zone Championships, 10 Senior Zone Championships, 4 Zone Match Play Championships, 1 Zone Senior Match Play Championship, 4 Zone Spring Open Championships, 2 Zone Summer Open Championships, 1 Zone Fall Open Championship, 1 Zone Pro-Pro Championship with Scott Mikkelsen, 1 Zone Senior Pro-Pro Championship with Marc Foucault, and 2 Zone Championship Senior Championships.
