Bob Gunnell has long been recognized as not only one of the top golfers in this area, but also in Western New York and Florida.
Nicknamed the "Gunner," Gunnell was born in Jamestown on January 25, 1934, and has lived all of his life in Chautauqua County.
As member of Chautauqua Golf Club, in October 1990 Gunnell earned one of the two area berths for the United States Golf Association Senior Amateur Championship in Carefree, Arizona. He earned the berth by sinking a 20-foot sudden-death putt on the 360 yard No. 2 in the qualifier at Clarence's Brookfield Country Club. At the Senior Amateur, Gunnell won his first match before being eliminated in his second match.
