Kyle Puttick – Owner of the shop and Golf Director
Kyalami Country Club
|What led you to becoming a PGA Professional?
|I discovered the game of golf late in life and was instantly hooked. The idea of making it my vocation and helping to grow the game and introduce more people to it appealed to me immensely.
|How long have you been in your current position?
|I have been at Kyalami for almost 5 years.|
|What does your job entail?
|I run the retail space at the club and oversee the golf operations and day to day member relations.|
|Do you have any environmental or sustainability goals that you have met and would like to share?
|Please give us a brief outline of the path you took to lead you to your current position||I moved to Johannesburg 6 years ago and began working at CCJ under Richard Fulford. When the opportunity came up to move to Kyalami I jumped at it and was lucky enough to buy the shop from Richard after 3 years.|
|Why do you feel that you would be a good candidate to win this award?
|I like to think I encompass the values of the PGA professional and always endeavour to behave in a manner commensurate with the PGA values in mind.
