A class "A" member of the PGA of America, Bruce was born and raised in Carnoustie, Scotland (home of the 2007 British Open) within a prominent golfing family. His father Alex is featured in the landmark golf instruction book, "The Search for the Perfect Swing" and his great grandfather was head pro at Cruden Bay Links, Scotland, in the late 1800's.
After becoming a class "A" member with the British PGA in 1977 he became head pro at Golf De St. Laurent in France before moving back to his home land to become an instructor at Gleneagles Hotel and Golf Club.
Bruce arrived in the U.S. in 1983, becoming the fifth Wilmott to teach on this side of the Atlantic. He has worked with some of the nation's top instructors, including Hank Haney, and credits Hank as being his biggest teaching influence.
Formerly Director of Instruction for California Golf Schools, Bruce has been with McInnis Park since it opened in 1993.
