Paul Weyland, the PGA Director of Instruction at Falcon Crest Golf Club in Kuna, Idaho, has been named the 2018 Teacher of the Year by the Rocky Mountain Section PGA.  The Teacher of the Year award bestows special recognition on a Rocky Mountain Section PGA golf professional that has performed outstanding service as a golf instructor. The honoree is chosen based on his or her performance, leadership, image, promotion of the game of golf, and impact on teaching and golf instruction as well as their involvement in junior activities at their facility in addition to innovative contributions to golf instruction and published articles.


Weyland was elected to PGA membership in 2011 and this marks the first time he has been recognized with a Section award.   Paul uses every opportunity that comes his way to continue to learn more about teaching every type of player.  Since beginning his career as a golf instructor in the North Florida Section at the IMG Leadbetter Golf Academy, Paul has been able to teach juniors and adults of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.  In addition, he most recently completed and is certified as a HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) instructor.  This program is a national initiative providing golf access and education to disabled veterans.


Paul has devoted his career to teaching golf and strives to envelop his students in a complete program involving everything from equipment fitting, mental conditioning, game management, fitness, nutrition, and swing mechanics.  His junior academy is welcoming to any child and has four levels starting with the basics in his “Emerging Stars” program thru to his “Elite Player Development” program addressing the needs of elite juniors and collegiate players.  His excellence has not gone unnoticed by his peers and he was recognized by Golf Digest as a top teacher in the state of Idaho.  Weyland will formally receive his 2018 Section Teacher of the Year award during the 2019 RMSPGA Annual Meeting next May.
