Shuman was asked to speak to PGA head golf professional Earl Puckett.
Shuman received an interview with Puckett
and was offered the assistant's position.
In 1998 when Puckett announced his retirement, the Board of Directors at Twin Orchard decided to only interview one candidate for the head golf professional position - Shuman.
"Working for Earl
, I just couldn't leave.
There was no one out there better to work for or learn from.
Just like Ogilvie, Earl
