Billy Fyfe hails from the ‘Granite City’ of Aberdeen in Scotland. He began his professional golf career at the Kings Links Golf Centre in Aberdeen under the guidance of Bruce Davidson. Billy was given the opportunity to observe the teaching methods of Dick Harmon and Butch Harmon’s son Claude Harmon III who attended the King Links Pro-am annually.
After spending nearly four years at the Kings Links Billy moved to Portugal to the Butch Harmon School of Golf as an Assistant Professional. This was Mr. Harmon’s second golf school worldwide and was an opportunity not to be missed for Billy. He spent two years at the school and gained tremendous experience working closely with Claude Harmon III.
In 2000, Billy had the opportunity to spend six months in Las Vegas at the Rio Secco golf club, Butch Harmon’s main base. This golf school was the stable of many top players in the world of golf, including Jesper Parnivik, Adam Scott, David Duval, and of course the world number one’ at the time, Tiger Woods. Spending time around the world’s number one golf instructor and world number one player could only enhance his knowledge of the golf swing. He spent a lot of time observing Mr Harmon’s philosophy closely.
At the end of 2000, Butch Harmon decided to open another golf school in the Bahamas. This was to be the next stop for Billy in his career. Now familiar with the philosophy, teaching style and dedication that Mr Harmon had for the game, Billy went on to put these invaluable experiences into practice on Grand Bahama Island where he continued to work for three years eventually taking over the management of the golf school operations in 2003.
Billy became a fully qualified P.G.A Professional after passing the P.G.A final examination at the Belfry in England. Billy is currently a Senior Instructor at The Paul Lawrie Golf Centre in Aberdeen.
