Christian Bell Assistant Golf Pro at Palm Harbor Golf Club
Nov 8, 2013
Christian Bell, a native of Loudon, N.H., has always been athletic. He started his career as a professional baseball player with the Atlanta Braves organization, pursuing this path until the sport had taken a toll on his body.
He and his family moved to his wife's hometown of St. Augustine, Fla., where he began working the nightshift for an aerospace company in Jacksonville. Bell started playing golf first thing in the morning, right after work.
As his scores improved, Bell decided to shift his career focus to golf. He attended Golf Academy of America in Orlando, graduating in 2010. His first golf position was at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Orlando where he ran the caddie program.
