PGTAA extends Covid Special offer for September

The Professional Golf Teachers Association of America (PGTAA)

The PGTAA has extended their Covid Special offer for the month of September.

According to Todd Leonard of Golf Digest, “Instructors around the country are booked up like never before, happy to have the business, while also feeling a bit frazzled. As so much of golf has boomed—the National Golf Foundation reported 39.6 million rounds played in 2020, including 3 million people who tried it for the first time—the demand for instruction is greater than ever before. Golfers have had the time and disposable income to get lessons and practice. Their biggest issue became finding an instructor with the time to teach them. It can feel like trying to see a specialist through your HMO.

Among golf’s demographics, no group has experienced more growth during the pandemic than women. The NGF reported 6 million women playing golf in 2020, an increase of 450,000 from the year before. Twenty-four percent of all golfers were women.”

Recognized as the world’s premier golf instructor certification organization, the PGTAA boasts a membership comprised of former PGA and LPGA Tour members, including major championship winners who have availed themselves of the PGTAA’s expertise.

If you are looking to change careers or teach golf, see why you should consider the PGTAA to obtain your certified Class A PGTAA Master Teaching Professional designation.
