Keiser University’s recent College of Golf Pinning Ceremony for five Associate of Science in Golf Management graduates marked the end of their educational experiences and the beginning of their careers in the golf industry. The ceremony, held in the DeVos-Cook Conference Room of the Flagship Campus, was attended by the graduates and their families, staff, faculty, and fellow classmates. Following remarks by Mr. John McMurry, Flagship Campus Vice President, and Dr. Eric Wilson, Executive Director of Golf Operations, Brian Hughes, Golf Program Director, introduced the graduates, each of whom spoke to the assembly, recounting their time spent at Keiser University.
Graduating from the Associate of Science program were Colton Kenagy, Dmytro Koba, Zackary Potten, Daniel Ruhlin, and Bradford Schwarz.
Keiser University College of Golf graduates receive both academic and hands-on learning opportunities as they earn Associate of Science degrees in Golf Management in as little as 16 months and Bachelor of Science in Golf Management degrees in an additional 20 months. Their degrees earn six/twelve credits toward membership in the PGA of America.
With over 1500 square feet of indoor instructional space, including motion analysis systems, simulators, launch monitors, and video analysis capabilities, Keiser University’s superior technology has fine-tuned the graduates’ golf swings to the point where passing the PGA’s Playing Ability Test is a realistic goal.
