Recognizing the importance of striving to maintain excellence in the golf industry, Whidden spent nearly 75 hours studying on-line materials with the majority of the work done outside of the office. Whidden completed the certification process by passing a series of rigorous knowledge tests, which now places him among the top 2% of the 20,000 members of the PGA of America.
