Bernie McGuire B. Bus.
Before getting into golf Bernie worked for four years on the personal staff of the Premier of New South Wales in Australia.
There was a time working on the Premier’s staff, the Premier introduced him and other members of the staff to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip during a Royal Visit to the State.
His work on the Premier’s staff led Bernie to accept the position of Chief Private Secretary to the Treasurer of New South Wales.
However his life bizarrely changed when then incumbent Labor Government lost the 1988 State Election.
The day after the election Bernie headed off to the final round of a top Australasian Tour event, and in making his way to the exhibition area he filled out a coupon.
A day later, and as Bernie began the process of attending to the out-going Minister’s business affairs, he received a phone call from a local Sydney newspaper to advise he had won first prize in the tournament promotion of an all expenses paid trip to the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Florida.
That was in March 1988 and an event when American Mark McCumber stormed his way to victory.
This new career path then took Bernie to the 1989 Open Championship at Royal Troon and the first of over 60 Majors Championships including being present in 1993 when Gene Sarazen handed Greg Norman the Claret Jug, shaking the hand of Adam Scott moments after he won the 2013 Masters and more recently also shaking the hand of Jason Day, and the new PGA Championship winner.
Nowadays Bernie annually attends close to 30 tournaments from where he contributes to a number of newspapers and websites in Great Britain, Ireland and Australia.
His many years on tour has led to enjoying a great working relationship with a great many players including 14-time Major winning Tiger Woods as you can see from the photo above.
At the end of 2014 Bernie created history in becoming the first non-European born Secretary of the Association of Golf Writers (Europe) that was founded in 1938.
He is also member of the Australian Golf Writers Association and has long held a Business Administration Degree (B. Bus).
Bernie resides at Crail and if he’s not home or overseas then you should find him out on either the Balcomie or Craighead courses at Crail Golfing Society, and golf’s seventh oldest club, striving still to reduce his current 15 handicap.
