Andrew Wintraub

Andrew Wintraub

PGA of Canada Teaching Professional/Assistant Professional

Andrew comes to Highland Pacific with extensive teaching experience. He has taught at various facilities in Ontario , Victoria and Vancouver. He is happy to return to Victoria after a 9-year hiatus, where he taught golf to players of all levels in Vancouver.

Andrew started playing golf at the age of 13 and fell in love with the game soon after that. He played in various junior events in Ontario and then quickly worked his way up to playing elite High School golf, 3 years of Varsity golf at York University, and then on to Professional tournament play.

The basics of golf were ingrained in Andrew at an early age, using Jack Nicklaus’ book Golf My Way, and Ben Hogan’s five fundamentals as his golf bibles. While his main teaching style is conventional, he has taught variations of Natural Golf as well as the Stack and Tilt method to round out his teaching repertoire.

Andrew’s very comfortable with helping all players from beginner right up to the expert player. He will do his utmost to ensure every student gets a customized system of swinging and short game/putting that fits them best.

Don’t hesitate to ask any questions if you see Andrew on the range or in the pro shop, as he loves to talk golf whether it’s golf-swing related, equipment related, or golf in general.
