It was at the spry age of 13 that former Vacaville High School Bulldog Elliott Paylor first fell in love with the game of golf and decided he wanted to compete on the PGA Tour one day.
Chasing the dream has proven to be a grueling journey, but after years of hard work and dedication to the game Paylor was rewarded as he made his PGA Tour debut at the Barracuda Championship last weekend at Montreux Golf and Country Club in Reno.
Although Paylor didn’t make the weekend cut, being able to compete in a PGA Tour event was a big accomplishment for a man who has made great sacrifices in pursuit of his dream.
“It was a dream come true,” said Paylor, who works as an Assistant Golf Professional at Yocha Dehe Golf Club in Brooks at the Cache Creek Casino Resort. “I don’t think I stopped smiling all week. I was very thankful for the opportunity to be out there.”
