About Bob Skura
After graduating from the University of Watrerloo in 1972 Bob Skura taught and played professional golf for five years. In time he went on to build a successful sales and marketing business in the health care industry.
Years later he was asked to apply his business experience to help his former golf team at the University of Waterloo. After a series of successful tutoring sessions Bob decided to write down the verbal presentations he had made so that future University of Waterloo players would always have a hard copy of guidelines to refer to. Those writings turned into a story about four golfers under the title How Great Golfers Think - Perfecting Your Mental Game.
In 2008 ForeWord Magazine selected How Great Golfers Think as a Finalist for the 10th annual Book of the Year Awards in the 'Sports' category.
In 2009 Bob Skura was recognized with two 'Outstanding Achievement' awards from ING - The International Network of Golf. The first was for How Great Golfers Think - Perfecting Your Mental Game in the 'Book Of The Year' category. The second was for the newsletter, ForeThought, in the 'Instruction' category.
Since the publication of How Great Golfers Think Bob has been asked by professional golfers for coaching assistance and to speak to various associations about the keys to achievement. He's also become associated with InsideOut Development, a professional services firm that provides leadership, management, and front-line employee training programs to a large global clientele.
Currently Bob lives with his wife, Sharon in Kitchener, Ontario, where he works on writing and coaching projects that interest him. His non-golf hobbies include juggling and unicycle riding, two skills he developed after the age of 50.
