What led you to becoming a PGA Professional?

 

I started golf at age 13 and my club pro had his name on his belt clip, I told him from day one I’m going to have one of those and be like you. Then after school I started working for him and started my apprenticeship. Qualified 2013 now I’m here. @Kennethdube
