PGA Members must earn MSR (Member Service Requirements) Credits towards their professional development, which is the primary purpose of this requirement to maintain membership. With this in mind, MSR should assist PGA Members to become well-rounded professionals who are committed to the traditional values of golf which are teaching, playing, and promoting the game.

Player development, continuing education, networking, and participation in Section activities are a vital part of the process.
