Tyler Collet receives Elbert Player of the Year Award

Tyler Collet

Congratulations to Mr. Tyler Collet, a junior from Cross Lanes, West Virginia, for winning the Professional Golf Management program’s Elbert Award!

This award is given to an outstanding PGM student each year based on a point system. Points are distributed based on how well students play throughout the year at tournaments and games.

There is a small monetary award that comes with this honor, along with a crystal trophy.

This distinguished decoration was renamed by EKU's PGA Golf Management staff to honor Dr. Norbert Elbert, former chair and professor in the Management, Marketing, and International Business department at Eastern Kentucky University. “Dr. Elbert loves the game of golf and is an avid player. Naming our Player of the Year Award after him was a perfect fit!” summarized Kim Kincer, Director of the PGA Golf Management program. The PGA Golf Management program became an option at the School of Business in 2006.

Kincer went on to say, “Dr. Elbert worked very hard to convince people on campus about the value of a PGA Golf Management program. His persistence paid off, and his vision became reality. The PGA Golf Management staff and our students are here at EKU because of his vision. He has left a legacy that will enable students to realize the dream of becoming a PGA member.”
