About Paul

Before "early retirement" to become a PGA Professional, as an engineer/lawyer working on "The Chunnel" in England, I won several cups at The Epsom Golf Club where they still award the Kruger Cup to the Junior Club Champion in honor of my working with juniors there. I have written more than 1,000 articles on the Rules of Golf, and have scored 100 on the USGA exam. I have won the Horton Smith Award for education from both the Georgia and Sun Country Sections of the PGA.
