Before his golf career, Paul played Junior A Hockey in the US and Canada. Paul then attended Denver University where he played Division 1 Ice Hockey while majoring in Communications and minoring in Music. Music? Yes. Paul went on from college to front a number one band in Colorado and toured the US performing for a few years.

Paul and his wife Tracy love spending time with their 8-year-old daughter at Disneyland, family game nights, playing guitar, and watching Ice Hockey. Paul is also a Founder and Instructional Program Director for Heroes In The Rough, a Military PTSD rehabilitation program. Paul and his family are excited to be part of Indian Wells Country Club with its world-class reputation as being one of the most historic clubs not only in the Valley but the United States.
