He was recognized by Golf Digest as one of The Best Teachers in New Jersey for 2017-2018, and he was selected by U.S. Kids Golf as one of 2017’s Top 50 Kids Teachers. The U.S. Kids Golf Top 50 recipients represent 26 states, as well as five countries internationally. Locally, Paul was nominated in 2016 and 2017 for the New Jersey PGA Youth Development Award. Along the way, Paul has had the opportunity to learn from some of the game's greatest teachers including Bob Toski, Phil Ritson, Mark Sweeney, Chuck Evans, Henry Brunton, John Godwin, Dr. Rick Jensen, Gale Peterson, and Chicago golf legend Emanuel Worley.
At the Forsgate Golf Academy, Paul creates group and private coaching programs for adult and junior students to help them improve quickly. He uses the latest technology to coach a large number of junior golfers, several of whom are the best in their age groups in New York and New Jersey. Twelve of his students have earned spots in the U.S. Kids Golf World Championships held annually at the Pinehurst Resort. Prior to arriving at Forsgate, Paul was a teaching professional at Royce Brook’s Academy of Golf in Hillsborough, New Jersey.
