Keiser University’s recent College of Golf Pinning Ceremony marked the end of educational experiences and the beginning of golf industry careers for several thankful graduates.
The affair, held at the Keiser University Flagship Campus’ Jeannette Hare Art Gallery, was attended by the graduates and their families along with staff and faculty members, 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 Chris Psetas, Philip Rother, Rafael Tolentino, and Michael Tree. Stanley Doura-Lamur graduated from the Bachelor of Science in Sport Management program.
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 Sport 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.
