There’s been a lot of changes in the golfing industry over the past 30 years, and there’s one Australian professional who’s been at the forefront of those advancements. That’s Denis Brosnan.
Denis started out as the golf pro at Redcliffe Golf Club near Brisbane in 1967. During his time there, he met a young caddie called Wayne Grady and showed him how to grip a club. He also gave a few lessons to a promising youngster named Ian Baker-Finch at the nearby Beerwah club. (Later, he was to help both of them with customized clubs and other equipment in the early stages of their pro careers.)
Probably the most significant thing that happened at Redcliffe Golf Club though, was that while he was working there, Denis first conceived the idea of making golf clubs.
