During the 50 years that I have been a Member of the PGA, it has always been a great honour and privilege to consider myself a Golf Professional and have had the opportunity to be associated with many fine Golf Professionals. My fellow brothers and sisters Professionals over those years are responsible for instilling in me my integrity and fidelity to the game of golf. The opportunity to employ young Associates and Assistants trying to gain acceptance in our Association is rewarding. Hopefully, longevity gives one experience that can be passed on to those that follow and motivate them to be true Golf Professionals. I will always be inspired to continue to strive to be the best Golf Professional and Member of our Association. I have been a very proud Member!
