The player that takes their children to the driving range, or plays a round of golf to bond with their mother or father. The player who simply wants to improve their game and to enjoy the beautiful game of golf.

We stand for these players, because at Golfers Authority we are these players!

Paul Liberatore


Paul is a Attorney and has been playing golf since he was three years old, however he is still working on becoming the next Tiger Woods. Paul is currently a 10 handicap, and his favorite thing to do is get the biggest bucket of balls he can find and hit one club until he becomes consistent with his swings. I know so conventional!  In his quest to become a better golfer, he created the Golfers Authority to share his journey with his fellow golfers. On any given weekend you can find Paul at the golf course with his father, or teaching his two little boys the beautiful game of golf.

Molly McGlinchey


Molly was first introduced to golf by her grandfather as a child. What first began as quality family time with her family,  golf quickly turned into a passion.  Growing up in Arizona, Molly was fortunate enough to be able to play golf all the time. In High School, Molly became a four-time varsity golfer and played in local golf tournaments. Even though she may no longer compete, her group of friends and family keeps her challenged out on the course.  When Molly is not out golfing or writing, she can be found working on her other passion, the beauty and cosmetic industry.

By day, she works in Fundraising and Development for the Catholic Diocese of Tyler; by night, she is usually asleep by 8 pm. But by early morning, she can be found pounding it out on the treadmill (or on the pavement, if she’s lucky), taking spin classes, and lifting heavy(ish) things. When they get the chance to travel, she and her husband love to hike and explore the world by foot. Her summer love language is the lake or ocean (swimming in it, boating in it, floating in it, etc) and she probably sweats more coffee than water.
