As a professional educator, Bill found it natural to collect the pearls of wisdom of his golf mates from scenic Granite Pointe Golf Course in Nelson, British Columbia. Advice was and is freely given every Thursday night. The advice will resonate with golfers everywhere as it speaks to the very obvious problems which every striker of the ball faces when looking down at the ball and then to the hole in the ground which the ball should seek to find.

Bill is the author of 101 Nifty Ideas for High Schools, A Baby Boomer's Guide to "I Remember When" and Golf Solved: Simply Doing the Obviously Simple to Improve Your Golf Game.
