Pro Golfing/PAT


Robb.....I passed the PAT in '01. Would it still be valid?

HI Rob;

Question:  Did you follow up and get into the PGA GPTP?

From what I understand, there are time limits between passing a PAT and entering the GPTP.

I would suspect that if you did not follow through and get into the PGA Apprentice Program (GPTP) within a certain amount of time after you passed the PAT, then it might not be considered to be valid now.

Since the PGA is in charge of the GPTP, it would be best if you contact the PGA Directly to get any answers to this.

You can reach them at 800-474-2776.

Thank your for your time.
