WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Women's Golf Coach Katie Brophy earned the title of Class A Professional from the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) after completing the final round of practical testing and coursework.

The process to earn a Class A certification typically takes professionals anywhere from three to six years, and the final examination period includes putting together a coaching binder, passing a written exam and taking a practical coaching test, which is conducted by LPGA Senior Vice President Nancy Henderson and Teaching & Club Professionals Education Coordinator Gwen Checho. Brophy has been asked to serve as a mentor for young coaches as they navigate their way through the LPGA certification process.

"It's an honor to be affiliated with such a respected organization," Brophy said. "It truly invests in the continued education of its members, which is something that I take very seriously."

Brophy, completing her third year at the helm of the Hoyas program, led Georgetown to a second place finish at the 2014 BIG EAST Women's Golf Championship last week in Florida.

During the team's trip to Florida for the BIG EAST Championship, Brophy and the players were able to take a tour of LPGA Headquarters in Daytona Beach.

This summer, Brophy will be traveling to Williamsburg, Va. at the end of May to participate in an LPGA Teaching Day and Girls Golf Day at the LPGA Kingsmill Championship.
