I am the Head Teaching Professional at Bangor Golf Club, succeeding Michael Bannon in November 2012.
My career began at Holywood Golf club where I worked for 3 years under Paul Gray. The opportunity then arose to go and work as an assistant professional at the Ryder Cup resort of the K Club in Kildare, Ireland. I spent a year working there gaining experience in several departments. As part of their training program I also spent 4 months working at Reunion Resort in Orlando, Florida.Then an opportunity came to go and work at Bangor Golf Club under Michael Bannon. Michael is coach to world number 1 Rory McIlroy and was European Coach of the year in 2011. I spent 4 years under Michaels Tuition watching and learning how to teach people of all ages and abilities. I also had the privilege of watching him nurture Rory and help him to become the talent he is.In my current role as head teaching professional at Bangor golf club I try to continue teaching in the style that Michael has taught many people and taught me to teach people as individuals and not teach a method.
During his 18 years as PGA Professional, Paul has watched the game evolve into a more athletic sport. These changes led him to gain certification with the Titleist Performance Institute, as a Golf Fitness Professional and TPI Level Two Junior Golf Coach. Paul is passionate about handing down his expertise and delivering a more modern approach to coaching, helping both the game and its students to grow.
