    Having been raised in Scotland, it was a natural progression for Matthew to pursue a career within the PGA of America as soon as he graduated from Berry College. He has now been a golf professional for nearly 20 years and has learned from Georgia's great teachers such as Scott Hamilton, George Kelnhofer, Tom Ness and Mike Perpich.

    Since becoming a PGA member, Matthew has also been an active participant within the PGA of America on both the Section and National level. In just the past seven seasons, has been appointed to the Georgia PGA Board of Directors, participated in two Web.com Tour events, the Professional National Championship and remained within the top ten professionals in the Georgia PGA money rankings.

    "Golf Club of Georgia has always been a wonderful place to come relax and play great golf. Now, with the state-of-the-art Clubhouse, first-class driving range coupled with the majestic short game area, it is now a premier place to come and learn more about the golf swing or learn how to play this wonderful game. It is truly a magical place and I am honored to be part of the Team. Adding the new Cupp Golf Academy will merely elevate the Golf Club of Georgia as arguably the finest private golf club in the Atlanta area."

    Matthew and Wife, Kelli have been married for 2 years and currently reside in Atlanta.

    Andrew Moore, PGA
    Director of Instruction

    amoore@golfclubofgeorgia.com

    Andrew has an incredible thirst for knowledge which has driven him to learn as much as possible about golf improvement. Andrew has had major influencers in all sections of the game but the most significant ones include Brad Redding, Golfing Machine, Jim McLean, and the Titleist Performance Institute. He is also an expert in utilizing modern technology like TrackMan, SamPuttlab, Boditrak, 3D motion analysis, and the RoboGolfPro system. His knowledge and expertise will be on full display and available for members at the new Cupp Golf Academy.

    This knowledge allows for a great ability to correctly diagnose problem areas, but that is only one level of improvement. The golfer must also understand the concept, maintain or create functional movements, and develop appropriate skills. If one of these levels is not satisfied the golfer will not reach his/her potential on the golf course Students will practice and play smarter, more competitively, and experience more fun than ever before.

    "I am thrilled to be starting at Golf Club of Georgia where there is an incredible buzz within the membership lead by Mr. Kenny. He has made this club the gold standard by balancing modern values while respecting the rich history and traditions of the past. I look forward to being a strong presence in this great community! I also hope to see you on the lesson tee or join me for a round of golf!"

    Bunky Henry

    Prior to teaching full time, Bunky competed for nearly 20 years on a variety of professional tours including the PGA TOUR, the Champions Tour and various mini-tours. His competitive years afforded the opportunity to play, practice and socialize with the best players in the world; observe them and "pick their brain". Bunky received personal lessons from Bob Toski, Davis Love, III, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, Jim McLean and Jimmy Ballard.

    What Bunky actually discovered, after years of practice and trying, literally every methodology and theory that seemed to make sense to him, was that there is NO "secret", NO "perfect" swing, NO one way! Ben Hogan refused to reveal his "secret" because he had NO one "secret", but a number of "secrets" which he continued to discover through hours and days of experimentation and practice. Bunky's teaching philosophy and goal is to help his students fully understand what causes a good golf shot or what few positions in the swing needed to achieve in order to produce that good shot consistently, how to incorporate these positions into the students' personal swing without instituting a major overhaul, and then giving them drills and practice routines for improvement and monitoring their practice.

    Bunky is a proud inductee of the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame and Georgia Tech Sports Hall of Fame.
