Keiser University College of Golf and Sport Management Students at 2015 Honda Classic Pro-AM
Recently, we had over 50 student volunteers participating in a PGA Tour Event. During The Honda Classic Pro-Am at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.
Keiser University College of Golf and Sport Management students enjoyed hands-on experience, caddying for amateur players and assisting with tournament operations. For many of our students this was the first time caddying in a major event.
This opportunity is a dream job for many golfers, but that dream became reality this weekend for dozens of our students.
Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management is dedicated to providing a comprehensive education that actively engages students and reinforces an academic foundation that prepares them for a successful career in the golf industry.
We are always seeking opportunities for our students to gain experience, create relationships, and build a resume while earning their golf degree. There’s no better place to get hands-on in the golf industry than the PGA Tour.Two of our Bachelor students commented on their experience and time at the Honda Classic:
Steven Wall, who was paired in Retief Goosen’s group, said: “It was a wonderful experience and I would do it again in a second. The Associate’s Degree In Golf Management at Keiser University provided me with extensive knowledge in the rules of golf, golf etiquette, tournament operations, and many other aspects of the golf industry, which helped prepare me for today.”
Another student, Web Tuck who was paired in Ernie El’s group, commented: “Walking alongside a tour professional and watching how he manages a golf course was one of the most unique experiences I have ever been a part of. Being a student at the College of Golf and Sport Management has provided me with many opportunities to gain experience. I have had the opportunity to work with Special Olympics, Junior Golf Programs, and participate in three national club professional events, including caddying in the LPGA Wilkinson Cup, but being able to be part of an event this large was an experience I will remember for a lifetime.”
Keiser University is extremely grateful for the opportunities that are made available to our students through our industry partners. We would like to thank the PGA Tour and the Honda Classic for providing us with an opportunity to be a part of such a great tournament and charitable event. This event is right in our back yard and we are always excited to be an active part of the community, get involved, and give back. Our students walked away with some great experiences and memories that will serve them for the rest of their lives.
