The PGA Master Professional program was established in 1969 to recognize PGA of America Members who make a significant effort to improve as golf professionals and maintain the highest degree of excellence for themselves and their operations.

The program is available to those with at least 10 years of PGA Membership along with having achieved advanced certification through the PGA Certified Professional Program. The curriculum includes an extensive project based on the specific certification previously acquired by the PGA of America Golf Professional. PGA Master Professional status is earned upon successful completion of the presentation.

“Becoming a PGA Master Professional is a huge honor,” said Keller, a PGA of America Member since 2003. “Coming from where I started, to reach this point of such an elite group of people, it’s taken a lot of persistence over the years. I couldn’t be more thrilled and excited to be a part of this Master Professional group now and continue to progress my teaching and coaching abilities within the golf industry.”

Keller graduated from the Penn State University PGA Golf Management program in 2003 with a degree in Recreational Park and Management. He earned a Master’s Degree from Ohio University in 2012, focusing on sport psychology, long-term athletic development, athlete performance, conditioning, recovery and injury prevention. 

Before becoming owner of York Indoor Golf & Training Center in York, Pennsylvania in 2017, and Lancaster Indoor Golf & Training Center in Lancaster in 2021, Keller worked for several golf facilities in various roles throughout Florida, Delaware and Pennsylvania, including The Club at The Strand, Lancaster Country Club, Cripple Creek Golf & Country Club and Regents’ Glen Country Club.
