PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management is pleased to announce that student Zachary Cafarella has achieved Impact Zone Golf Player Certification. He is the 16th Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management student to become Player Certified in Impact Zone Golf, a program developed by PGA TOUR veteran and CBS Sports commentator Bobby Clampett which covers five unique swing dynamics, drills and personal instruction.

Cafarella attended Impact Zone Golf clinics conducted by Impact Zone Golf Master Instructor Dr. Eric Wilson, who is also a PGA Master Professional, and successfully completed the examination to receive his official certification.
