PGM PGA accredited schools vs non accredited

5 posts in this topic

I am considering going to college through a pgm program. I'm going to be a Senior in high school this fall and and still looking at the different colleges. I live in Pennsylvania so I would prefer to go to a school in PA. I've looked into Penn State but I know it is a competitive program to get into. I looked online and read that Cal U also has a PGM program but it is not PGA accredited. So I'm wondering if its worth applying to Cal U if I don't get into Penn State, or would I be better off applying to an out of state school that is PGA accredited.

I'm fairly certain you'll want the PGA certification. It's kind of the whole point.

Go with an accredited program, even one that's out of state.

IF you want to work as a golf professional, you may have to "leave the nest" to go where the jobs are. You need to get out of that high school mindset.  Sooner or later, you have to grow up.

My reasons for wanting to stay in PA is because it is cheaper to go to a school in state. I am fully aware that I may have to leave PA in search of a job. One of my main reasons for choosing this career path is wanting to be in other parts of the US other than the northeast

Then make Penn State your number 1, but find other out-of-state, PGM-accredited schools to apply to. No real point to apply to a school that is out-of-state and unaccredited if those are your criteria.

    • I don't think we're at the point where all that stuff can really be integrated quite yet. Too many competing standards and stuff right now. Soon. Not yet.
    • Of the six military guys I asked about it, five felt it was exactly the kind of thing they fought to protect and had no problem with it. The sixth said he thought it was disrespectful but said so is killing people and blowing shit up and the military does that itself. Have you polled enough of the military to see whether it was seen as disrespectful by the majority?
    • Of course the outrage is after the fact.  As it is with most things.  Are you stating you would have to personally witness something as it happens to be outraged or disagree with it?   I don't believe it is something that can be "proved" either.  I don't think it needs to be.  If the majority of the military feels it is disrespectful, than I tend to agree with that.
    • My house is dumb as a brick.  And 2x4 posts.  And drywall.  And paint.
    • No. Liking the entirety of your country, your government, etc. is not a binary state. You don't even like everything about your wife. Or children. Or golf. @Gunther, never one to disappoint with that crap. More below… You never give people enough credit. Guess what? You can support a person's right to protest while completely disagreeing with whatever they're protesting. It isn't. But your constant attempts to pigeonhole do more to divide than they do to gain understanding, find common ground, and discuss things intelligently. I'll call it like I see it - you're intellectually lazy when it comes to anything political. That's why I think you pigeonhole everything into "liberal" and "correct" (in your opinion). And hey, I tend to vote Republican. We're probably more alike than you imagine, politically… except that I try to look at things separately, when I do take the time to consider it, while you seem to want to just pigeonhole and spout. Others have said it, but you can't "prove" that it's disrespectful. It's just your opinion. And anyone else's. At the risk of making a post that's not "on topic" enough that I'd moderate it if it weren't my own post (though mods are and always have been free to moderate my posts as they see fit)… my thoughts on the matter include: I don't think it's disrespectful to sit. I think you should probably have a reason to sit, because if you garner attention for sitting you'd better have an answer as to why, not just "I don't know, stuff sucks here right now." He seems to have had a reason, so okay. Sitting is no different, IMO, than burning a flag. Protesting in front of Capitol Hill. If a "regular person" sits, nobody will care. A few people might say "what a jerk" in their minds, but they're not going to care if he has an issue. They will if a celebrity sits, so he used the fame to get his point across. I'm not entirely sure what he was protesting, so I don't know if I agree or disagree with him. I know people who support gay marriage but who oppose welfare. Or the opposite. IMO, things are rarely so clearly divided along party lines. I know military people who think what he did was terrible, and others who think it was a great expression of the freedom their fighting and work has allowed for. As usual, since it's politics, I don't give it a whole ton of thought. But what little thoughts I've given it are right there.
