About Paul

My name is Paul Taylor and I am a Certified PGA Professional in Birmingham, Alabama. I Currently do most of my instruction at Oak Mountain State Park Golf Course. I graduated from the University of Alabama in 2011 and worked at Ol Colony Golf Course throughout college. I was the Director of The First Tee sessions and Assistant golf professional. After college I moved to Mobile, Alabama and worked at Azalea City Golf course where I was the Assistant golf professional for 8 years. In 2017 I finished my PGA status and became a Class A member. My wife and I then moved to Birmingham where I worked as an Assistant Golf Professional at Greystone Country Club for 8 months where I realized my true calling in golf was to be a full-time instructor. I started my current business Paul Taylor Golf Instruction and have been doing it full-time for nearly 3 years. My goal is to get you better as quickly as possible and have you reach your goals fast.

Absolutely great teacher. Paul was super informative and broke down my swing step by step and told what I needed to improve. After only 3 lessons I feel confident in my game and can see drastic changes. Highly recommend Paul for lessons!
