Paul A. Kaster

Director of Instruction, Forsgate Country Club, Monroe Twp., NJ

Paul learned the game of golf on Chicago’s only 18-hole public golf course, Jackson Park G.C. He went on to play Division I college golf, and later, on mini tours including the Tar Heel Tour (now EGolf Tour) and the Golden Bear Tour (now Gateway Tour). After suffering a wrist injury, Paul left golf to pursue a career in the law, but realized after practicing for several years that he wanted to return to the game to share his passion for golf and for learning, with his students. He is a member of Callaway Golf’s professional staff, Proponent Group, and is a certified instructor with U.S. Kids Golf. In 2014, Paul helped coach the NJ PGA Junior League team that went to the National Championships at TPC Sugarloaf. Several of Paul’s junior clients have qualified for the World Championships at Pinehurst and have won player of the year honors on US Kids Golf local tours. Since 2012, Paul has also been a regular contributing writer to GolfWRX.com.
