Thiha Gyi - A Remarkable Path
The first thing you see when you meet Thiha Gyi is his infectious smile. If you get to know Thiha, you will find behind that smile a warm and welcoming, friendly gentleman. He also happens to have quite a back story.
A Candidate for Membership with the PGA of Canada, Thiha works at the GreyHawk Golf Club in the south end of the City of Ottawa.
A latecomer to the golf industry, his story is interesting just for the journey and the decisions he has made to get to where he is in life. Unlike most golf obsessed kids who go on to work in the golf industry as soon as they can, Thiha's route was a bit more indirect.
He, along with sister Nilar, was born in Burma, a Southeast Asian nation now known as Myanmar, in 1967 to Emma and Aung Gyi. A very close family, Friday evening dinners when everyone is available are very special for all of the family. This is especially true for Thiha's wife, Khine Thinn, and their daughters Maya and Kayla.
