    “The PGA of America is made up of nearly 29,000 PGA Professionals who are ready to help you further your love for the game of golf. Whether you’re a beginner, a PGA TOUR or LPGA Pro, or like most—somewhere in between, our mission is to help you navigate your golf journey so that you can take it as far as you want to go.”

    Day-in and day-out, this is what being a PGA Professional is all about. But this week is a very special week for a 20 of those 29,000 members as they’ve earned a spot in one of the PGA of America’s marquee events – The PGA Championship.

    And we’re excited to help shine the spotlight on 10 of these club professionals who are also Titleist Staff Members (check out this post on the Team Titleist blog for more). Congratulations again to Danny Balin, Alex Beach, Justin Bertsch, Jason Caron, Ben Cook, Jeff Hart, Marty Jertson, Rob Labritz, David Muttitt and Jeff Roth!

    In the meantime, the PGA of America shared a few videos below to help you get to know a few of these players a little better. There’s also a special message from Titleist Brand Ambassador Justin Thomas – both his father and grandfather share the distinction of being PGA Professionals. Check them all out below!

    These are the guys that with their hard work try to make us 'better' golf players (some of us are a hopeless case) and at the same time they manage to keep their game at the level of the Tour Pros.

    It is amazing they even qualify; to make an appearance in a major must be a club professional's life dream.
    Last year, I read an article in a Golf Magazine in which they claim that only seven club professionals have made the cut in the PGA Championship over the last decade up until Bethpage. Is this true?

    How many Club Professional's made the cut this year?

    In this particular case, the cut does not matter and they are all winners.
