 Yes, he's getting it together, probably just not as quickly as I thought he would. :) I'm from the Nam era so my way of looking at the "Thank a vet" is very different from how they are these days. Vent Mode On#1 I mean no disrespect to anyone that serves or has served!Personally I find the "Thank a Vet" as of late a bit too much. Yes those from Nam were treated badly no doubt, but trying to make up for it by over-thanking anyone in uniform is disrespectful to those who...
Update After I got over the shock of my son wanting to change majors, we talked a great deal about his future direction and plans.  I did NOT push him either way, only he had to make decisions that would effect the rest of his life. And after discussing it with course management, his profs and some soul-searching, he decided he'd come too far to quit and that he needed to learn to ignore idiots, including one ex-student that was really pushing him to quit the program.  I...
Well after all that...   I present this information simply for parents and the soon to be college students as something to consider while looking into a PGM career, your experience may be totally different, I hope it is.   My son interned at a private country club for his Sophomore Spring 2014 semester.  The course asked him to stay on as a regular employee for the Summer, so he stayed in Florida.   I went and visited my son a couple of weeks ago.  His golf game...
 As I read the post, I began thinking the poster may be a shill.  When I saw "our graduates", I was sure.
 I've wanted to make a comment similar to yours, but hesitated to.The indoor place I mentioned when my son was 15, he had a nice "20 something" fella as an instructor, but was clueless about the finite elements of golf. His teaching ability was severely lacking and when I pointed out the problems to him, I got a blank stare.  I went to the owner of the place and he was all lip service. Fast Forward to Summer 2013My son interned at a local country club.  He was showing 8-12...
 I like your term and comments "education inflation", all very true as I see it.My father quit school to help support his family during the depression.  Yet he worked his way up to Senior R&D Engineer, working for the same company from after WWII until he retired, and with 3 patents to his name. In the business world 99% of the time having a degree is a foregone conclusion.On the other hand, except for a quick one-liner "he attended...", how often do we hear them discuss a...
"Even the less famous names on there (e.g. Coastal Carolina, Campbell) etc are good, solid, regionally accredited universities. Don't saddle yourself with boatloads of debt to go to a dubious, for-profit school."   I'd be cautious regardless, do your homework.  Out-of-State tuition almost doubles my son's college tuition costs.   We spent 2 weeks just looking at and going over the PGM accredited universities websites and then how their PGM program was presented.  As...
 And I respectfully disagree with that.If you're missing "weaker points of your game", because "your playing 18 holes in warmer climate" that's a problem in itself.Playing indoors certainly can not replicate regular play out on the course.  The dynamic variables simply aren't there. The following relates to my son, YMMV.He was having some minor swing problems before starting college.  Hours at the driving range just didn't quite suffice.Once he started playing on a course...
 Thank You same to you and Happy Holidays
No. My son and I live in Ohio and I didn't think golf work indoors during winter was the best and he quickly agreed, so we looked at the warmer climates.   No offense meant, but I would prefer not to start a one university vs the other(s) discussion.  Each is different I'm sure, but they all adhere to PGA requirements.   As a side note;  I liked this college after reading their website and how the university and PGM itself were presented, he liked a different one. ...
