Opportunities for golfers to connect with a PGA Coach
WEST PALM BEACH, Florida and FRISCO, Texas – The PGA of America was named recently as a global partner of Women’s Golf Day (WGD), as part of the Association’s ongoing commitment to Inclusion and Diversity.
The PGA of America will be highlighted as a resource of WomensGolfDay.com, provide access for individuals to use on online directory to find a PGA Coach, and learn more about ways to engage with PGA Jr. League.
“The Women’s Golf Day movement is more than just a one-day event— it’s a celebration of girls and women playing golf, as they learn new skills and develop a lifelong love for the game,” said PGA of America Chief People Officer Sandy Cross. “We are focused on growing the game, while also serving our 28,000 PGA Professionals, so this relationship with WGD was a natural step in supporting the women’s game. We look forward to assisting participants with an easy way to learn and become more involved in golf through the support of a PGA Coach.”
Elisa Gaudet, Founder of Women’s Golf Day added, “We are thrilled to have the support of the PGA of America. Our participants look to us as a resource, and we are eager to continue supporting them by helping to connect them with a PGA Coach. We look forward to having more PGA Professionals discover the many benefits of WGD, as they host events at their courses in the USA and abroad.”
WGD is pleased to also support the PGA by offering Member Service Requirement (MSR) program points to PGA Professionals who participate in a variety of activities related to supporting the WGD initiative.
On May 31, WGD Palooza, a one-of-a-kind digital celebration connected golfers from around the world to golf industry movers and shakers who are creating opportunities for more people to engage with the sport, will be held online. WGD Palooza provided PGA Professionals who registered an opportunity to earn 1 MSR credit. A highlight reel of the event is available at https://womensgolfday.com/wgdpalooza/.
By hosting a Women’s Golf Day program on Tuesday, June 7, PGA Professionals have an opportunity to earn 4 MSR credits. This year’s Women’s Golf Day will be conducted at golf facilities around the globe and is a four-hour experience where women and girls can experience the sport for the first time or where current players can play and engage with women interested in golf.
The first opportunity came at the PGA Show in January by participating in the education seminar presented by Women’s Golf Day and a panel featuring PGA Master Professional Cathy Harbin, a member of the PGA of America Board of Directors
