Elections apparently take a few days… even though everything should be pretty automatic. I meet all of the requirements, so I should be in with about ten seconds of double-checking. But it took a few

Well, today I passed all of my Level 3 tests for the PGA apprentice (or "associate"?) program. I emailed in my application for membership, and the next election date is apparently July 2. So far as I

Congrats, @iacas! Though to be perfectly honest, I'm not sure how any of this changes what you do, but it's still cool to be "official" and everything.

Nothing except I can go to the Masters now. ;-)

Hmm... it's been a few years since a club pro won that particular tournament.  It'd be fun to see you be the next one.

Can you explain this?  

PGA members get in to the Masters. You used to be able to take your wife too but no more.

They can get in to all the tournaments actually, I think.

Congrats, great news and clearly well-earned! 

Has it in any way benefited your primary roles of running the site or instruction? Just interested.

This is great @iacas ! I didn't realize what it takes to rise in the PGA until I met a friend who is a Life Member of the PGA. I think it is quite remarkable and little known. Best, Marv

Thanks. I pretty much could as an "apprentice" too.

They didn't have to know the one or two (I think just one) times I was technically "suspended" (you have two years to complete each level, or you're "suspended" until you pay for the next level of class materials; I took longer than two years to finish my level 1 stuff and buy level 2, but think I did 2 and 3 within two years each).

Wow, I had no idea.  What a great perk!!!

    • How many women have been timed over 1500m in a pool? Not THAT many. Why wouldn't she dominate the times in this event - given that she is so impressively dominant? How many people have played golf competitively? I'll bet 99.9% of people you see on the street couldn't tell you who Oksana Chusovitina is. As for women's swimming, Shane Gould is the only person, male or female, to hold EVERY world freestyle record from 100m to 1500m  + 200m IM SIMULTANEOUSLY. (1972)
    • My goodness, you aren't kidding. For those who don't see the article for whatever reason:  there's a list of the top 25 fastest times ever recorded in the women's 1,500 meter freestyle swim.  Katie Ledecky owns spots 1-13, and also spots 15, 17, 18, 22, and 25.   The closest thing to that I can think of offhand is in threes.  Tiger Woods owns the top three season-long strokes gained: approach ever recorded (granted, these have only been recorded in, I believe, the Shotlink era), and at one point (up until a few years ago), Kurt Warner threw the most yards ever in a Super Bowl, but was also in second and third place on that list. 
    • Day 155.  Quarantine practice plan, day 11.  I really like this drill and I plan to incorporate it into my practices on a regular basis.  I took video but it's still on my phone, I will likely put it in the relevant thread tomorrow afternoon. 
    • Day 28: Long day at work, so not much time left for golf practice today. Managed some work on downswing priority piece, hit 10 balls, 7-iron, lots of rehearsals between shots. 
    • Day 65, July 29, 2021: More three-quarters swing work.
