Arguably, I think it's also important to note that 9 of the teachers on this list are not Class "A" PGA Professionals. Unless there are extenuating circumstances as to why they are not Class "A", if you work hard enough, cultivate a genuine passion for teaching, and demonstrate unique style and substance as an instructor, you can find success as a teacher without your Class "A" status. Will earning your Class "A" help you? Absolutely. But should it be depended on? Maybe not. Its arguable.
