NEPGA Professional Paul Parajeckas

PGA Pro Paul Parajeckas demonstrating the "Stretch Towel"

Pleasant Valley's Head Golf Professional Paul Parajeckas has quite the sterling resume! A former PGA and Senior PGA Touring Pro, Paul was recently nominated for the New England PGA Hall of Fame Award by his peers. This past August Paul won the New England PGA Championship at the Worcester Country Club after playing in it for over 35 times and in his own words, "being a bridesmaid 6 times." Paul said, "Winning that was one of the highlights of my career, I've pretty much won everything in New England, it was a pretty big, very exciting 3 days of my career. It was the most exciting thing and it didn't really hit me until about a week later! All the congratulations from my family, friends and peers was just overwhelming!" An interesting fact one may not know about Paul is that 7 years ago he, along with a few friends, invented a nifty performance enhancing device called "the Stretch Towel." Comprised of a stretchy terry cloth fabric, it comes with an instructional DVD along with 28 exercises to assist golfers in stretching which helps golfers to stay limber providing more motion and flexibility - greatly affecting the golf swing. Paul says, "It's extremely important for injury prevention that golfers stretch before and after they play." The Stretch Towel clips onto your golf bag so it can be used throughout your golf round as well and there's a pouch (like a kangaroo) where you can insert an ice pack ~ perfect for the drive home. You can purchase it online at www.stretchtowel.com and check out the stretch towel instructional video too!
