Peter Croker stopped by Keiser University College of Golf on Wednesday to visit with Dr. Eric Wilson, Executive Director of Golf Operations, and present to the entire College of Golf student body. Following his presentations, he provided individual instruction to College of Golf students well into the evening.

Peter has been a prominent figure in the Australian Golfing Industry since becoming a PGA Member in 1971. He has been both a touring and teaching professional throughout the duration of his career. Some career highlights include winning the 2007 PGA Victorian Teacher of the Year award.

At aged 61 Peter believes that his coaching career has only just begun and that it is education and lessons that are the future of the golf industry and individual success. He also says that he is in training to make a comeback to competitive golf on the E-Z-GO Legends Tour.

Peter has coached many high profile golfers using his Croker System including Vijay Singh, Arnold Palmer and Fred Funk, but says that every one of his clients is a celebrity in his books!

While he might think his clients are the celebrities, it could just be that their coach is also. Peter made the cover of the April 1995 of Golf Digest Magazine. The article was written about his teaching program, and it was the first time an Australian golf instructor had the privilege of gracing the cover of Golf Digest Magazine.

Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management students were enthusiastic in their comments about Mr. Croker’s presentations, and he plans to return to the College of Golf in January of 2014 to talk with our students once again.
