PGA Works Collegiate Championship

371

The 33rd PGA WORKS Collegiate Championship took place May 9th – May 12th at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The PGA WORKS Collegiate Championship, the most culturally significant championship in collegiate golf, combines top-level competition with a one-of-a-kind career development experience. A major event during tournament week is the PGA WORKS Career Expo, where student-athletes meet face-to-face with potential employers.  While many of the participating teams in the PGA WORKS Collegiate Championship represent historically black colleges and universities, the individual competition is open to all minority men and women student-athletes playing collegiate golf at the Division I, Division II or NAIA levels, or participants who are enrolled in one of the 18 PGA Golf Management University Programs. AIG supported the event with a generous donation, which was used to help offset travel costs for participating teams.
