Looking for another challenge he moved to Jack Nicklaus' Muirfield Village Golf Club in Columbus where he was in charge of the merchandise tent at the PGA Tour's Memorial Golf Tournament. Another opportunity came at the Pepper Pike Club in 2009 where Shawn returned to Northeast Ohio and obtained his Class A PGA Membership.
