Clampett is the First Tour Player Ever to Achieve Advanced Designation as a PGA Certified Professional
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – On the heels of updating its education curriculum to ensure that PGA members are prepared to meet the growing demands of the current marketplace, The PGA of America announced that eight
PGA Professionals have completed the requirements to achieve certification through the advanced PGA Certified Professional Program 2.0 (CPP 2.0). Among this list is PGA Tour and Champions Tour golfer Bobby Clampett,
who became the first Tour player to ever achieve advanced certification from the CPP 2.0 program, with a career path
in Instruction.

“I always had a passion for teaching,” said Clampett, who won the 1982 Southern Open and is a golf author, television commentator, course architect and founder of Impact Zone Golf in Bonita Springs, Fla. “It is not tradition
any more for Tour players to become instructors and to do it while you are still playing [is something I am proud of]…Becoming a PGA Certified Professional is a very good thing to do. I look at it as a partnership. I want to work
with The PGA of America. I believe we are going to really improve instruction, and we are going to make a difference.”
