Keiser University College of Golf (KUCOG) graduate Peter Crocitto III recently passed the 36-hole PGA of America’s Playing Ability Test.
Administered at the par-72 Reunion Resort Golf Club Nicklaus Course in Orlando, Florida, Crocitto shot rounds of 79 – 70 = 149 to pass by eight strokes. A measure of golfing aptitude, the Playing Ability Test is one of the requirements to become a PGA professional and successful completion indicates possession of the necessary skills to teach and to grow the game of golf. Crocitto, a former University of Miami and Keiser University baseball player and Gold Glove recipient, also earned his Keiser University Bachelor of Science degree in Sport Management in 2019.
Crocitto shares details of the challenge in this video as he works towards the ‘next step in his journey’ of establishing a career as a PGA Teaching Professional.
