Military Veterans with Disabilities Tee-it-Up at “Secretary’s Cup,” 9-Hole Golf Match Prior to 2016 PGA Championship Week
PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America, hosted the inaugural “Secretary’s Cup,” on Sunday, July 24th at Fiddler’s Elbow CC. The 9-hole golf match featured military Veterans that participated in PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) programming, a 6-8 week golf clinic that introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities in order to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.
The competition consisted of Veterans representing the Philadelphia Section PGA, the New Jersey PGA Section and the Metropolitan PGA Section. Veterans from Team Bronx (L to R) (Mike Massie, Max Makarczuk, Sheldon Rector and Harris Keane) were joined by PGA Professional, Nick Novak (2nd from the left) who was instrumental in teaching the HOPE program at the Section level.
