Bob Shea Award Winner - Brent Paladino, PGA

Brent Paladino, Director, Competitions & Communications at the CSGA, won his first Bob Shea Player of the Year title in 2017.  Paladino  amassed 404.53 points during the 2017 season and sealed Player of the Year honors with his victory at the Omega Match Play Championship at Manchester CC.

Paladino was very steady throughout the season and posted some top finishes at the Connecticut Section PGA Championship (2nd), Connecticut PGA Championship (T8 among section professionals), and the Spring Stroke Play (T3) to help keep him at or near the top of the points list all season.  He also earned valuable points through his play at the Connecticut Open and Western Mass Open.

The Player of the Year award began in 1970 and Dick Stranahan won the first two titles. In the 1980's the Player of the Year award was named after Bob Shea who served as the section executive director from 1980-1993.

No one has won more section Player of the Year titles than Paul Ryiz who has won a record nine titles.
