John-Paul Hebert recently went on a birdie fest while playing a round of golf in Hawaii. He was playing at Hapuna Beach on the Big Island (Hawaii) February 7th with Steve Termeer, Mike Myers and Tim Towell. Here are JP’s comments on what took place:
“We played a 4 person shamble, which is select drive & then play your own ball. We did not select my drive on #1, and we made par. We selected my drive on 8 of the next 9 holes, and I birdied all of them on my own ball.
Basically birdied 8 of the first 10 holes on my own, and one other off someone’s par-3 tee shot.
I was a peaceful day and I made lots of one putts..”
Having played a match against John-Paul Hebert and Joe Beck Jr. in the 2013 Hannon Cup matches, I can say I am not totally surprised that Hebert could accomplish such a feat. He is long off the tee and has a deft touch around the greens. And when he gets the putter working he is a force.
As a native of Texas, Jean-Paul was influenced by many greats of the game, including his father Jay Hebert and uncle Lionel Hebert. He was a member of The University of Texas Golf Team, earning All-America honors in 3 straight seasons, and graduating in Communications Studies. Most recently, his professional experience includes competitive golf, golf instruction, and golf television production.
He is currently the Senior Assistant Golf Professional at The University of Texas Golf Club.
