$4,000 goal

I will be playing 100 holes of golf on Monday, July 18th at Edelweiss Chalet Country Club to celebrate the Wisconsin PGA turning 100 years old! I am asking for your support for both PGA REACH, which is a PGA driven program with the goal of growing our game in 3 main areas: Youth, Military, and Inclusion. My goal is to reach $4,000 and it would be a 50/50 split for REACH and First Tee – South Central Wisconsin.  I started working at Monona Golf Course in 1990, this is where I got my start and have been working in the golf business ever since. I lived in Palm Desert, CA for 10 years and finished my PGA education there. I became a PGA Member in 2006 before moving my family back to Wisconsin in 2007.  

I have been employed with First Tee - South Central Wisconsin for more than 11 years, where we focus on youth development and teaching life skills, using golf as our tool.  We offer programming through School and Community Centers, Learning Center programming, and our Green Grass programming where we specialize in golf instruction and teaching our nine core values. In 2021, First Tee - South Central Wisconsin served more than 12,000 youth, statewide, and partnered with more than 30 community organizations, schools, school districts, and community partners.  We are working to #BuildGameChangers in our community, one swing at a time.

Story

WHAT: 100-Year Anniversary Celebration of the Wisconsin Section of the PGA 


WHY: To celebrate the Wisconsin PGA's past 100 years, and to raise money to support PGA REACH Wisconsin and the different branches it supports -- youth, military, and inclusion. Through programs such as PGA HOPE, PGA Junior League, PGA WORKS and the PGA Junior Foundation Scholarship Program, we are able to impact lives everywhere through the game of golf. 

PGA HOPE: The flagship military program of PGA REACH, that introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being. This program introduces the game of golf through a 6-8 week developmental curriculum taught by PGA Professionals who are trained in adaptive golf and military cultural competency. This is at no cost to the Veterans. Learn more at www.pgareach.org/services/military.

PGA Junior League: PGA Junior League brings family and friends together around fun, team golf experiences with expert coaching from PGA and LPGA Professionals. The goal of this program is to be accessible to all kids interested in golf ages 7-17. There are also a variety of scholarship opportunities through PGA Junior League to help students reach their academic goals. Learn more at www.pgareach.org/services/youth

PGA WORKS: PGA WORKS is a strategic initiative designed to diversify the golf industry's workforce. PGA WORKS leverages fellowships, scholarships, career exploration events, and the PGA WORKS Collegiate Championship to inspire and engage talent from diverse backgrounds to pursue key employment positions across the golf industry. Learn more at www.pgareach.org/pgaworks.

Scholarships: The Wisconsin Junior Foundation Scholarship Program distributed $40,000 in 2021. Since its inception, it has provided students with $300,000 to help them achieve their academic goals. This year we anticipate awarding $50,000 or more in scholarships.Learn more at www.wiscjuniorgolf.com/scholarships.
