About Coach Paul
My father introduced golf to me when I was three years old. He would take me to play 18-holes and if I was good, I would receive a Snickers after the front nine and a Frosty Root Beer after the round. For the next few years, I continued to follow along with my Dad for the coke and Snickers and would take a few swings too. But during a family vacation to Great Britain, I persuaded Dad (with Mom’s help) to allow me to play golf with him at the birthplace of golf; St Andrews, Scotland. On that fateful day, the “golf bug bit me” and started my love and passion for the game of golf.
Through high school, I was fortunate enough to be taught by two instructors: Tom Treese and Dan Shelton, PGA. Because of these two coaches, they guided me and my progress to earn a college golf scholarship at Huntingdon College. While at Huntingdon, I earned All-American honors twice and our team won two National Championships. After college, it took me six years before I took the plunge in the professional ranks. Unfortunately due to shoulder injuries, my professional career ended before it really took off.
