As a golfer, “Our Man Patrick” started playing the game in 1993. Like most golfers, he can recall that first shot that came off the clubface so sweetly and hooked him for life. It was a hot summer day in 1993, and he went out for his third round of golf ever at Horsham Golf Club. Playing with his boss, who had been playing for years, they stepped up to the tee of a par three. The distance was 165 yards and his boss said to try a 6-iron. After two practice swings, Patrick stepped up to the ball and flushed it. The feeling was amazing and watching the ball fly toward the green and land six feet from the pin was all he needed to keep him coming back.
That fall, Patrick and Lou met at Flourtown Country Club where Lou was the PGA Head Golf Professional. After learning they shared the same Birthday, they became friends for life. In 1998, Patrick started working for Lou as well as taking lessons with him to better understand the golf swing and play to his best ability. His passion for studying the swing and practicing and learning everything about the game and its traditions started that year and has grown stronger every year since. Patrick has competed in several club championships at FCC, won the 1999 Match Play Championship, and his low round is a 68.
