R. Bruce Wilkins, PGA
Director of Instruction, Running Y Ranch
Bruce began his professional golf career after graduating from the Professional Golf Management program at Arizona State University. After gaining his Class A status with the PGA of America, he was fortunate to work at several of Tucson’s premier golf courses including Tucson Country Club and Ventana Canyon Resort. Bruce’s career has also included time working for Troon Golf Management at Sun Valley Resort’s Elkhorn, in his home state of Idaho, and as a private coach for some of China’s top ranked junior players in San Diego, California where he took one student to top honors at the Callaway Junior Worlds.
Bruce's coaching and teaching are influenced by golf knowledge from the past and present. He is a true student of the game and incorporates time honored principals and fundamentals with modern methods of understanding and motion analysis. As an instructor, Bruce has been certified by both TrackMan and the Titleist Performance Institute, and he offers V1 video analysis as well as BodiTrak Sport pressure mapping.
A patient and devoted instructor, Bruce enjoys working with golfers of all ages and abilities. Bruce believes there are many ways to swing a golf club, but one most efficient way for each player to maximize their potential. He strives to individualize each lesson, and help players improve through communicating a better understanding of their patterns, and in becoming more efficient with their motion. Lower scores, longevity, and enjoyment of the game, are his goals for every student.
Bruce and his wife Amy currently divide their time between Klamath Falls, Oregon where Bruce is Director of Instruction for the Running Y Ranch Resort and Swing Coach for the OIT Men’s and Women’s Collegiate Teams, and Mendocino, California where Bruce coaches the Mendocino High School golf team.
