College of Golf December 2018 Events

Friendly Friday Golf Competitions Score Big

Keiser University College of Golf Professor Frank Longabucco continues to bring students and PGA staff members together with Friday afternoon competitions.

The recent ‘One Best Ball of Two Gross’ challenge at the PGA National Resort and Spa Fazio Course provided an enjoyable way for students to experience the pressures of competition. Professor Frank Longabucco explained “The tournaments provide students an opportunity to play competitively, preparing them for their PGA Playing Ability Test. Also, PGA Professionals are able to help students with their golf course management skills and mental games. Finally, the events are fun!”

The winners of the event were Mitchell Bland and Cameron Kelley with a score of 3-under par 69. With prizes regularly awarded and donations collected to support charities, the events have garnered positive responses from College of Golf students and staff and will continue following the holiday season.
