Paul Dillon had an important influence on golf in the New York Metropolitan area for many years, serving as the president of the Metropolitan Golf Association, the Westchester Golf Association and the MGA Caddie Scholarship Fund, as well as coaching the Fordham University golf team. In his later years, Paul became an accomplished painter, creating portraits of some of golf’s greats, as well as several important contributors to the local golf scene. He was inducted into the Westchester County Sports Hall of Fame and cited by the Metropolitan Golf Writers Association, who named their Distinguished Service Award in his honor.
