Meet The Pros

Sean Fredrickson
Head Golf Professional

Sean joined the TCC staff in March of 2005. Before coming to TCC he spent three years at The Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club as the Head Golf Professional. Prior to The Reserve, Sean was the First Assistant Golf Professional at Columbia Edgewater Country Club. Early work experience include stints in Northern Idaho, Wisconsin, Palm Springs and Phoenix. His varied and extensive work history solidifies his strong knowledge of each facet within the industry. Sean is an active player, teacher and promoter of the game of golf; although, his passion is providing a matchless level of customer service. Sean is also a member of the Oregon PGA Board of Directors and serves on the Board of Directors with the PNW PGA Section. Sean is actively involved in his chapter and section of the PGA of America. Sean grew up in the Tualatin area and attended Tigard High School where he played varsity soccer and baseball. In 1995 he graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Political Science (Spanish Minor). In his rare free time, Sean can be found spending time with his wife April, his three kids Hayden, Sofia and Quinn, and his Yorkie named Scout. Sean has no doubt that he has found his dream job at TCC, and considers himself lucky to serve the membership at Tualatin Country Club.

Tim Spears
First Assistant Golf Professional

Tim is currently the 1st Assistant Golf Professional at Tualatin Country Club and has been with us since April of 2007. After becoming a member of the PGA in 2009, Tim won the Oregon Chapter Assistant Golf Professional of the Year in 2015. Tim married his wife Tiffany in October 2011 and just welcomed their first child this May, Thomas Spears. Tim has worked in a variety of Country Club settings but feels at home here at TCC.  "Returning to the NW was the best move I could have made; I am enjoying calling myself an Oregonian".

Brandon Stransky
Assistant Golf Professional

Brandon has been working in the golf industry for the past nine years. He grew up in Skagit Valley in the small town of Burlington, Washington. Brandon’s passion for golf grew through high school while he was employed at Skagit Golf & Country Club as a golf shop assistant. Motivated to become a PGA golf professional, he attended the University of Idaho to pursue his dream. At the end of 2017, Brandon graduated with a degree in Marketing and an emphasis in the PGA Golf Management Program. After ten months as an intern at TCC, he became an assistant golf professional at the Club. Away from the facility, he enjoys hunting, playing and watching sports, and spending time with his girlfriend, Megan. Brandon concentrates his teaching method on three main laws of the golf swing: centeredness of contact, clubhead path, and clubface position through the impact zone. He specializes in teaching beginner to intermediate players, juniors of all skill levels/ages, and a variety of clinics to both men and women.

Paul Russo
Assistant Golf Professional

Paul is the newest member to the professional staff at Tualatin Country Club, starting in January of 2018. He calls Seattle home, but graduated from the PGA Golf Management Program at the University of Idaho in 2017 and most recently moved from Jacksonville, Florida where he worked at TPC Sawgrass. Paul loves golf and decided to work in the industry to spread the game to as many people as he could, especially those that haven’t played before. Teaching golf since 2012, Paul takes a cause and effect approach: everyone is unique in their own way, but any issue in someone’s golf swing can be brought back to one or two problems causing it. Paul specializes in teaching beginner to intermediate players, juniors, and left handers, but welcomes anyone looking to improve their golf game in the long or short term.

Shelby Hunt
PGA Associate Professional 

I graduated from Whittier College in January 2018 with a BA in Kinesiology and Nutrition Science. I am a member of the national honors society Phi Epsilon Kappa where we emphasize the ideals of a sound mind in a sound body. I believe that through strength and fitness we can enhance playing performance as I have incorporated this into my own collegiate golf career. Golf has been one of my greatest passions for many years and I spend much of my time playing and practicing. Outside of golf I enjoy hiking, camping, and exploring Oregon with my loved ones and especially my dog Cali.

Jim Mapother
Director of Player Development
2016 Oregon Chapter PGA Teacher of the Year

As a golf instructor, I have found that the most important part of instruction is ball flight. I have had the opportunity of working with some of the greatest teachers in this great game. Professionals like Randy Henry, Tom Patri Top 100 Golf Digest instructor, Tom Shea a mental game expert, Kathy Jensen PGA National Teacher of the Year in 2014, Charlie Cook another Top 100 instructor as well as countless PGA and LPGA professionals who have developed their expertise in teaching to the highest level. What I have learned is that there is more to influencing the flight of the ball than just swing theory. The ball flight is influenced by three sources, swing theory, your physical body and your club design, and not one of these sources is more important than the other.
