PPA Beginnings

The PPA Today

The PPA continues to grow and develop, striving annually to offer enhanced programs and benefits to its members. The PPA tournaments have received national acclaim and have been publicized in major national publications.

Featured stories have been written in such renowned national publications as: USA Today, Sports Illustrated, The Washington Post as well as hundreds of local newspapers. Articles and award nominated stories and features about Putt-Putt and PPA have aired on ESPN, Bloomberg TV, radio, and CNBC. More than $80,000 has been raised to support local charities in cities where we play our national events.

PPA Highlights

Thousands of putting tournaments have been hosted by the Professional Putters Association since our founding more than six decades ago in our continuing search to find the world’s greatest putter.

In a labor of love for the game, 2008 PPA National Champion Kevin Lacey has collected tournament results and created an on-line tournament historical database that is well designed and easy to navigate.

When you have a few moments to relive the tournament history of the PPA, I encourage you to visit Kevin continues to collect results that have been omitted and would welcome those results.

Thanks Kevin for your efforts.
