This is Paul’s twelfth year coaching golf full time here in New Jersey. He was one of the first coaches in the country to create structured individual coaching programs based on data. Paul is a sought-after expert because he has a track record of using technology in a clear and simple way to get results for his clients. His passion is to help every golfer he meets enjoy the game as much as possible. Paul’s junior clients have won qualifiers and multiday events at every level of junior golf. Professional clients have played in majors and finished in the top 10 on the PGA Tour. Recreational adult coaching clients have lowered their handicaps by as many as 20 strokes in under three years.
Paul learned to play on Chicago’s historic Jackson Park and South Shore public courses. He attended Colgate University and was co-captain of their Division I men’s golf team before playing professional golf. Paul competed for three years on the Golden Bear (now the Gateway tour) and other mini-tours but an injury thwarted his quest to play on the PGA TOUR. He returned to law school and earned a degree from the University of Miami and passed the New York and New Jersey bars and worked for several years as an attorney before returning to his first professional love, golf.
In 2012, after returning to golf, he qualified for the Metropolitan Open, a former PGA TOUR event, with a 68 and finished 5th at the Bridgestone Premiere Pro-Am at Firestone Country Club in Akron, OH. In 2015, Paul advanced to U.S. Open Sectional Qualifying with a 69 at Montammy C.C. He also led his team to a victory with 9 birdies at the 2015 Open Pro-Am at Bedens Brook G.C.
Prior to opening his own studio in Little Silver, Paul was the first Director of Instruction at Forsgate Country Club. Prior to that he was the Lead Golf Schools instructor at Royce Brook’s Academy of Golf, a Golf Digest Top 50 Golf School at the time. His first job back in the golf business was as the Director of Golf at High Bridge Hills Golf Club in Hunterdon County where he was nominated for Head Golf Professional of the Year by Billy Casper Golf, a company with 165 courses under management at the time.
