PGA Master Professional recognised for his hard work
PGA Master Professional John Mulgrew was delighted to be recognised by the PGA for his work at their annual graduation ceremony, but was quick to encourage the newly-qualified PGA pros to continue their education.
The 66-year-old, based at Airdrie Golf Club, has spent his life working in golf and helping to nurture future PGA pros. He has had a distinguished career and has played a major part in helping establish the PGA Training Academy as the best in the world.
“This is a wonderful gift, which I am absolutely delighted to receive,” said Mulgrew of the framed print he received in recognition of his work. “My wife calls The Belfry my second home so now I can put it in my house.
“I am privileged to know so many top professionals and experts in the field who are there to help and will be there to help all of those graduating. What is pleasing is to see so many people from overseas doing the degree.”
The Scot, a former chairman of the PGA Training Committee, was presented with a limited edition Baxter Print of the famous 10th hole on the Brabazon course at The Belfry by PGA captain Neil Selwyn-Smith in front of a number of his students at the University of Birmingham. During his speech after accepting the award, his message was clear to the students who were about to start their careers.
“You have been given many skills and have the knowledge but it's all in your head. The challenge is to get it out and use it,” he told them. “You are at the start of your careers
and there are so many opportunities for you. A little bit of advice from me is that you need to keep going with your education.”
