The results are in

Posted on Updated on

After one intense week of becoming students of the game, the AJGA staff has proudly returned to Atlanta following our PGA/USGA Rules Workshop with some newfound knowledge and a lot less stress.

My last post gave you a little taste of what we were going through in preparation for our final exam last Thursday, now it is time to brag a little bit on what we accomplished.

The ultimate goal of the exam is to score a 92 out of the possible 100 points on the exam, which gives that individual the highest possible certification from the PGA and USGA. Amazingly, the 20 full-time AJGA staff was able to average the coveted 92, which is only achieved by a small percentage of attendees at these workshops.

Two staff members enjoyed an extra-special week in Houston. Senior Tournament Director Tommy Tangtiphaiboontana was able to join the AJGA’s “One Hundred Club” for the first time, and Tournament Director Annie Giangrosso went “back-to-back” and secured 100 for the second consecutive year.

In all, four new staff members passed for the first time bringing the staff-wide total to 29 certified rules officials, including 15 tournament directors.

Regardless of the individual results, we all have learned a ton over the last two months and are prepared for the upcoming season. When you find yourself in a sticky situation this year, be sure to track down the nearest AJGA Rules official to get you back in the game!

Till next year…

    Better prepare for the upcoming season and make sure the rules are browsed over and over again.
