50 Years Worth Of Televised Pro Putt-Putt Golf Championships

When you think of miniature golf you probably picture castles and windmills, teenagers out on a date and tiny pencils, but over 50 years ago the Professional Putters Association turned mini golf into a pro sport.

Founded in 1959 by Don Clayton the PPA was “Founded with the purpose of finding the world’s greatest putter, to promote Putt-Putt Golf Courses of America and its franchised locations.”, and in 1961 they started televising their Parade Of Champions.

Back in 2011 the Professional Putters Association uploaded 50 years worth of broadcasts to Vimeo so we can study how the masters putt and totally crush it when we go out mini golfing!
