2012 PPA and APA Membership

Competitive Putt-Putt Golf is divided into two organized membership categories. The professional ranks, called the Professional Putters Association (PPA), are a select group of professionals that are eligible to compete in the major events on the PPA National Tour and in state and local events. The amateur ranks, called the Amateur Putters Association (APA), includes those players competing in the game at an amateur level.

This page will be updated frequently as memberships for 2012 are received. This page will also provide state tour officials a means of checking whether a player is currently a member of the PPA and at what level. If you have any information for your biographical page or for any other players (tournament results, photos, awards, etc.) please send them to me. I prefer graphics to be in JPEG format but can normally read almost any format.
