if you fail this silly part of the exam you are level 3. sometimes you are not 100% spot on with your drop shots, you have a bad day, your feeder is off, you are nervous etc.... if it pops and passes the designated line with one bounce it counts against you, very hard to do if you are not a touch player and very accurate. NOT sure what this has to do with teaching though
I heard once at IMG they were giving level one like candy to anyone that took the test, could be wrong. It all depends on the testers and how lenient they are that given day, I think,
now master professional is the highest and they take that status pretty seriously, there are only two in our state and honestly my style of coaching is more modern than them but they have been coaching for 50 plus years.
