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.

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.

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.

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).

    • Day 18: I practiced one arm drills, 3-9 drills, and full swings. 6 iron then driver... I was working on face control. I tried varying my arm position at address, and worked on hand path in the downswing. Still not very happy with the results (shut face), but the errors were smaller tonight and they were almost all left. When I started out, it was big left and right misses. So maybe some progress.
    • I agree.  I think the reason that the TRO was denied was because there was no real basis for irreparable injury/damage. I'm no lawyer, and don't claim to be, but from what I've read that was the problem with the TRO as far as those 3 golfers were concerned.  Temporary restraining order  
    • And yet the NFL and NCAA exist and the others do not. So who really won? No damages awarded? Pyrrhic victory at best. LIV only exists to try and take the PGAT down. They will fail as the others did. Your argument is still very weak.
    • Day 59 (12 Aug 22) a rainy inside day, worked on lag putts from about 15’ and chipping whiffle balls into a small bucket (the latter is a constant game with the grandson - he was my chipping partner today).
