Schulhof was born in Muncie, Indiana.[1] He attended Indiana University, where he swam for coach Doc Counsilman's Indiana Hoosiers swimming and diving team in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) competition from 1962 to 1964 but could not participate in the NCAA Championships due to the NCAA's 4 year ALL SPORTS probation of I.U. for football recruiting violations. He was a two time national butterfly AAU champion and won eight international butterfly championships in Japan and Europe including East Germany between 1962-64.

Schulhof represented the United States at the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.[1] He swam for the gold medal-winning U.S. team in the preliminary heats of the men's 4×100-meter freestyle relay.[1][2] Under the 1964 Olympic swimming rules, however, he did not receive a medal because he did compete in the event final. He was inducted into the Indiana University Athletic Hall of Fame in 2012.

He went on to become a practicing Neurological Surgeon in Asheville N.C.from 1975 until his retirement in 2009.
