It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of one of the USGTF’s longtime examiners and Hall of Fame member, Ken Butler, this past September. Ken, originally from Glasgow, Scotland, began working with the USGTF in 1993 and continued on with his role as an examiner for over a decade.

Those who remember Ken will undoubtedly recall his great Scottish sense of humor. He also was a great golfer, having won the individual championship at the 1999 World Golf Teachers Cup, and played professionally in Europe before turning his sights to teaching.

He was not only a great friend to many USGTF employees, but also to many members. He also was a close personal friend of the legendary golfer and two-time major champion Tony Jacklin. Ken was enjoying retirement in Florida and a family vacation in Wisconsin when an unfortunate accident took his life. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him, especially including his wife Kari.
