“I suggest to all Professionals to break away from the norm and make yourself stand out in anyway possible. In life you should always be looking to better yourself and with the PGA Certified Professional Program this is a great way to increase your stock as a PGA Professional. To this date there have been 1,335 PGA Professionals who have been certified, which I am a very proud member of.”
