Palm Beach Post, Tuesday, Nov. 12, 1968 17 PGA Meets Here In Serene Atmosphere Players School were solid for lh tion file. The pros and the PGA then had come to an agreement of sorts, an agreement which lasted exactly 10 months. Then the pros the touring pros called it quits and formed their own organization, the Professional Golfers of America (APG). This time it is a rift that cannot be settled at the current meeting of the PGA because the APG has firmly established its own organization of which the PGA has no voice.

What the PGA plans in the way of its tour next vear mav be By CHICK VOOKHLS Golf Editor There is a note of seienity echoing in the conference halls of the Palm Beach Towers where various committees are meeting as a prelude to the formal sessions of the annual meeting of the Professional Golfers Association of America. This is in contrast to the 17 meeting where the strife between the PGA and its touring pro was a top topic, only to be dumped into the "temporary solved" situa- spelled out in the formal sessions.

New vice-presidents to be elected are John Boda of the Andover CC in Andover, Mass., succeeding Wendell PGA. They seemed to feel their future would rest with the PGA. not so much for the immediately available big tour purses, but (op their future in professional gotf as tour players, through the' APTS school, and as club pros through the PGA business" s.hools. The APG currently it. concerned only with its tour; it has made no known provision for teaching young pros the in tricate job of running a golf shop or golf club.
