COGSM Students at the Honda Classic today

More than 40 students from the Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management (COGSM) are enjoying an excellent educational opportunity serving as volunteer caddies at the Honda Classic PGA tournament event being held this week at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The students participate in the Gold Pro-Am segment of the event on Wednesday, February 26 where guests team up with a PGA TOUR Professional in an 18 hole shootout for prizes on the Champion Course. The students received training and preparation for the event from COGSM Executive Director of Golf Operations and PGA Master Professional, Dr. Eric Wilson and COGSM Program Director and PGA Master Professional Brian Hughes.

“Demonstrative, hands-on activities always provide the best learning experiences, and Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management regularly incorporates opportunities in which our students receive fun and educational hands-on experiences,“ says John McMurry, Campus Vice-President.“ Whether it’s attending the PGA Merchandise Show, training at the PGA Center for Golf Learning & Performance or helping with Special Olympics golfers, our students are deeply involved in many aspects of the industry as a daily part of their education. It makes for a better learning experience and they make great friends and memories along the way.”
