SUTTON - The photo accompanying this story is unique because Pleasant Valley Country Club head professional Paul Parajeckas rarely sits down. On the job, the youthful-looking 65-year-old is a whirlwind of activity as he was last week when the course hosted a qualifier for next week's Mass. Open Championship. On a warm, sunny day, moving from the pro shop to a golf cart and then zipping from hole to hole, Mr. Parajeckas made sure that everything was running smoothly. Only when the tournament-qualifying action slowed down was he able to sit for an interview. Every day, Mr. Parajeckas is pleased and grateful to come to work here at Pleasant Valley, the place where his love for golf really kicked in. It was 50 years ago this summer when Mr. Parajeckas was 15, and big-time PGA golf came to Pleasant Valley. From his home in Worcester, he hitchhiked to Sutton and jumped in line to be one of the lucky caddies selected for the 1965 Carling World Open. "In my mind, I can still see Ben Hogan and Tony Lema on the putting green in front of the clubhouse," Mr. Parajeckas recalled.

...
Said Mr. Parajeckas, "To this day, after I park my car in the lot, I walk past that area heading to the pro shop, and say, 'Good morning, Mr. Hogan.
...
Thinking back to the Carling Open in 1965, Parajeckas remembers Arnold Palmer using a white birch tree on the 17th green as a target for his second shot.
...
It's pretty much hollowed out, but somehow it's still standing," said Mr. Parajeckas, who, after an outstanding athletic career at Burncoat High, began his own professional golf career in 1969 at Green Hill Municipal as an assistant pro. Prior to being named head professional at Pleasant Valley in 2006, Mr. Parajeckas was the head professional at Indian Meadows Country Club in Westboro and later at Woburn CC. His playing career includes several PGA and Champions Tour events and numerous professional wins in New England events. When he turned 50, Mr. Parajeckas won the Senior Open at Cooperstown, N.Y., and earned $20,000. Mr. Parajeckas, who was inducted into the New England PGA Hall of Fame in 2012, lists his 2009 NEPGA Championship win as his most gratifying victory in golf. "It was at Worcester Country Club and I was 59 years old," he said. Today, Pleasant Valley, perfectly maintained with Tour condition fairways and greens, is owned by the Magill family, who also own Highfields Golf Course in Grafton. The Pleasant Valley clubhouse is undergoing new construction at the front entrance. "It's going to make our beautiful place even better," Mr. Parajeckas said. "Pleasant Valley has always been very special to me from the first time I set foot on the grounds here back in 1965," Mr. Parajeckas said.

Golfer, Paul Parajeckas suffers post-LASIK dry eyes, vision problems - Telegram.com 8/26/2009

From the article: Parajeckas, head pro at Pleasant Valley CC in Sutton, underwent successful Lasik surgery to correct his vision in 1996, but he has suffered from dry eyes and cloudy vision for the last year and half to the point where it affects his balance. "It felt like there was a fog over my eyes, like a windshield defroster," Parajeckas said. "I kept on blinking, blinking, blinking. Parajeckas had plugs implanted in his eyes to provide moisture, but his eyes got too wet, so he had the plugs removed a couple of weeks ago. He continues to use drops to try to prevent his eyes from getting dry. "It's been a nightmare," he said. If the drops don't keep his eyes moist, Parajeckas may have to wear contact lenses or eyeglasses... Parajeckas' vision problems bother him most when he putts. Yesterday, he putted for birdie 17 times, but made only one of them - when he hit a 9-iron from 139 yards to within two feet on No. 14.
