While in Georgia he learned from Andrew Rice a Golf Digest Top 50 Coach and currently under the tutelage of Wayne Flint the club’s Director of Instruction and Top 100 Instructor. Paul has a very simplistic teaching philosophy in making sure that his students understand the fundamentals of the game and then building their swing around the mechanics while implementing a strong program to form a winning golf swing.
