Canadian PGA Member and Ontario Zone Master Profesisonal Henry Brunton partners with Michael Grange to author Journey to Excellence: The Young Golfer’s Complete Guide to Achievement and Personal Growth

Pickering, Ont., – Henry Brunton - one of Canada’s top golf coaches - has joined forces with Michael Grange – one of Canada’s top sportswriters – to create Journey to Excellence: The Young Golfer’s Complete Guide to Achievement and Personal Growth.

Released this month, the book is designed to help aspiring young golfers maximize their potential, on and off the course. Drawing from his two decades of interaction with the game’s most respected educators, coaches and players, Brunton – Canadian PGA Master Professional and Head Coach of the RCGA National Men’s Amateur Team - moves beyond the traditional emphasis on the sport’s mechanical side and offers insight into what it takes to reach individual potential and achieve precise goals.

The lessons learned in trying to maximize golfing potential–time management, goal setting, dealing with success and failure and showing grace under pressure–are applicable across any number of disciplines. They are lessons that will prove beneficial on the course, but, more importantly, provide today’s youth a reference for excellence that also will serve them well in the classroom and at home.

“The singular purpose of publishing Journey to Excellence is to positively impact aspiring young golfers and the individuals who support their efforts—parents, coaches, volunteers and program administrators. I hope that this book makes the game more fun and rewarding for everyone who reads it.” Henry Brunton

Journey to Excellence is now available at www.amazon.com, www.henrybrunton.com and select additional golf shops and retail locations.
