TIM WILSON, Class "A" Professional, Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club

Topic: "Improving Players by Process"

Tim Wilson will share his process, 20-plus years in the making, for improving any student. Whether a new or recurring; assessing limitations, identifying learning styles, creating tiered goals, are a few of the things Wilson uses in his process. Once you have a blueprint of a student it becomes easier to continue understanding and retention. Wilson's goal has always been to present information in a way that a student gains ownership of that knowledge, and he plans to share some of the ways he approaches teaching the game and with purpose to improve your students.

Panel Discussion: "An Analytical Approach to Pro-Shop Merchandising"

Many golf retail outlets miss out on an opportunity to maximize their bottom lines by failing to effectively factor their sales figures into their merchandising philosophy. This panel discussion will explore ways to combine sales data with retailer intuition to increase profitability. To help facilitate the conversation, attendees are asked to arrive with the following info from their respective shops, if available and applicable: 

  • Which product category enjoys your highest profit margins?
  • Which accessory line has been most successful in your shop?
  • What new or different items have you added to your shop's offerings in recent seasons that have been successful?

Panelists include 2018 Lower Mainland Golf Professional of the Year Mark Thirtle, 2013 PGA of Canada Pat Fletcher Retailer of the Year Scott Kolb, and Trevor West of Sandpiper Golf Club, which was named the Lower Mainland's Golf Shop of the Year Award recipient in 2021.
