Meet The Team: Paul Schmeling at Troon North Golf Club

Troon is fortunate enough to have thousands of employees who do their jobs with passion and professionalism. Then there is Paul Schmeling, who meets those criterion and adds yet another treasured trait to the Troon demographic. "I guess you could say I've been given the gift of patience," said the 35-year-old assistant pro at Troon North Golf Club in Scottsdale. "I love working at Troon and in the golf industry, but working with kids has always been an important part of my life. I guess that's because my mother was a special education teacher and my father is a Pediatric surgeon, and helping people just kind of rubbed off on me. And while golf is what I do, coaching is what I want to do more of in the future."

But when night falls, Schmeling moonlights as a Special Olympics basketball coach, a job that brings him purpose and payback. According to his boss, Troon North.
