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.

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

Congrats! You can now play for free pretty much anywhere: professional "courtesy", you know... 👍

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!!!

    • I stand corrected. I will however, stand by the fact that he's not nearly as far gone as someone like Fowler. This year was clearly a drop on the stats front, but he still finished respectably on the money list. I'm not ready to assign him to the trash heap yet. Completely OT, but I'm curious how Rory's recent fall in the rankings compares with others who've fallen hard from the top  - not because of physical injury (I'm making an assumption that injury is not Rory's issue). People like Jordan (who's rebounded) and Duval. Do they collapse in one area (e.g. putting) or many areas? Is there any pattern? My guess is that there isn't a pattern, and that it's such a hard game that any golf "skill" that degrades can cause a precipitous drop in results.
    • @kmp which rules would you change, and how?  Though no rules should allow cutting down the lone tree at Chambers Bay...
    • Man, get well soon (seriously). This is just chit-chat about golf, or, to be precise, a level of golf most of we mere mortals can only watch in awe before heading out and skinning one over the green. The best of luck with your recovery. And I'm sorry for being snippy.
    • Yeah sorry your right but my point was Jack didn’t make the course the reason he didn’t win, my memory is abit off after a month in a coma. I’m trying to setup a new laptop and it’s not happening, I’ve had to admit defeat and get some help. My bad…
