Keiser University College of Golf is proud to announce that Brian Hughes, Golf Program Director at the golf school, has earned his title of Master PGA Professional on Friday, October 22, 2010. This makes Hughes only the 338th PGA Master Professional in the world, out of 28,000 PGA Members and Apprentices, and the 182nd Master Professional in Instruction.
The golf management school now has two PGA Master Professionals, two PGA Professionals with Ph.D. degrees in Education, and the Director for the Top 100 PGA Instructors for golf Magazine as faculty/staff members. Two PGA Professionals Certified in Instruction also work in the school’s golf program, as does a Top 50 LPGA Instructor.
Dr. Eric Wilson, Executive Director of Golf Operations, said, “The Keiser University College of Golf is proud to announce Brian Hughes’ designation as PGA Master Professional. Well deserving of such a title, Hughes’ dedication exemplifies how intent the institution is in providing the most professional education possible as students work towards their golf degree.”
Brian Hughes achieved his status by compiling a comprehensive PGA Master Professional Project. This was approved by a panel of PGA Master Professional Faculty members in July. The golf program instructor then defended his project during a one-hour presentation to the panel on October 22, followed by a 45-minute question and answer session covering all aspects of teaching the game of golf.
The session also included an evaluation in which Hughes conducted a live golf lesson with a student whom he had never met. Brian Hughes was then designated the 338th PGA Master Professional, a unique designation which he holds in addition to other job responsibilities at the golf academy.
“Congratulations to Brian for achieving this designation. We are proud to have him on board as one of our best instructors. He is an invaluable asset to both the school and our students,” added Wilson.
