Ken Munro – SIM Golf Head PGA Professional
At the age of 32, Ken has already been a dedicated golfer for over 20 years starting in Salinas, California 20 minutes outside the beautiful Monterey coast golf destination. He began playing golf daily at the First Tee program course Twin Creeks in Salinas where he would get dropped off during summer to play as much as he could while teaching himself how to play by trial and error on his own. From there he played his way through the Salinas HS golf team and the Monterey Peninsula College team before transferring to University of Oregon where he graduated with a degree in digital art and design in 2013. Ken moved back to California to pursue his passion for golf where he started his first teaching position at Wildhorse GC in Davis. From there he moved back into the Monterey area as a PGA apprentice at Bayonet and Blackhorse GC while part timing as a caddie at the exclusive Cypress Point CC. During this time he also was helping his college golf team coach teach a golf academy at Rancho Cañada in Carmel. By the end of 2016 he took a leap of faith to chase his dreams of being a professional golfer by moving to Scottsdale, Arizona with just a bicycle and some clothes where he worked his way up from caddying and working full time at The exclusive Estancia Club and Mirabel Club. During this time he competed as a professional in Monday qualifiers and Outlaw Tour events testing his game amongst the best in the state. By 2019 he had made his way into private instruction for a 3 day golf school company called Golf Made Simple stationed at Lookout Mountain in Phoenix while also being a club fitter at the PGA Tour Superstore. By the time Covid caught up with the world he decided to go home to Salinas to settle through the transition before moving back to Portland, Oregon in the summer of 2020. During this time he started training for long drive and 1st year in he qualified for the World Long Drive Championships in Mesquite, Nevada where he made it to the top 30 competitors.
