Center for Golf Learning and Performance
AGCP Master of Golf Club Technology
AGCP Lifetime Member
Having been a PCS member, a GCA Master Craftsman and in the craft for over 30 years, when the PCS began its decline and ultimate demise, I was on the lookout for an organization to which I could belong that furthered the craft of clubfitting, taught me more skills in the craft and gave me instruction on how to better manage my business. I first learned about the AGCP from a sponsoring vendor, Tom Wishon Golf Technology, in the late summer of 2007 and immediately joined and made plans to attend Roundtable 2. I haven’t missed a Roundtable since nor do I intend to. The benefits I receive from the AGCP far outweigh anything I have gotten from any other professional clubmaking or clubfitting organization to which I have belonged. Nowhere else is there a concentrated knowledge level, professionalism or business savvy as there is here in the AGCP. The willingness on the part of all the members to help each other in terms of information, equipment supply, training assistance, and much more repay many times over the annual dues cost.
Achieving the level of AGCP Master of Golf Club Technology is paramount to any other level of certification issued by any other organization because of the requirements incumbent upon any member seeking to achieve that level of professionalism. Each applicant must show proven abilities, inventory of advanced equipment and evidenced skills in the use of that advanced equipment, tools and methods of clubfitting and clubmaking. There is also the requirement to be willing to assist and teach every other member with no other thought than to pass on skills, knowledge and training to others. The motto of the Masters is “Teaching the rest to become the best of the best.”
