*Original story from http://wkunews.wordpress.com/2013/10/17/golfexpo-2013/
WKU’s Department of Kinesiology Recreation and Sport partnered with the Collegiate Golf Alliance (CGA) and Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) to host an on campus golf expo for the PGA’s Play Golf America University Program and CGA’s National Collegiate Golf Championship program.
The expo, held Oct. 9 on WKU’s South Lawn, brought 215 students out for a chance to win prizes, test their skills on the challenge courses and learn how they could qualify to win a free trip to the CGA’s National Collegiate Golf (NCGC) Championship in Las Vegas.
Collegiate Golf Alliance and the PGA are partners in helping to further promote golf on college campuses. Together they have helped more than 750 universities, 50-80 local qualifiers and campus expos and host the largest collegiate golf event in the world. As a way to gain maximum exposure for the PGAU/NCGC program, both on a campus and nationally, participating schools will conduct an on Campus Golf Expo.
“We are excited to be able to bring golf to the center of campuses. Our CGA/PGAU Golf Expo is a free interactive expo that promotes golf to players of all levels. Our goal is to stimulate interest in the university golf club, lesson programs, and recreational/competitive tournaments,” stated CGA President and CEO Mike Munson.
The NCGA Local Qualifier Two-Person Scramble will be held April 19. Course location is TBD. All college students are welcome to participate, with the WKU winning team receiving a free trip to the national tournament held in Las Vegas on June 30-July 2, 2014.

About PGAU: Play Golf America University, formerly GOLF: For Business & Life, is a PGA of America college and university golf program, designed to teach and engage students in the game of golf through PGA Professional instruction and other golf programs. Since being launched, The PGA of America has distributed $7.3 million to 76 participating colleges and universities throughout the United States, including $6.1 million on behalf of members of U.S. Ryder Cup Teams as a means to support this initiative. Through 2008, PGA Professionals have provided instruction to more than 27,000 college students through Play Golf America University. WKU students have benefited from Hall of Famer Kenny Perry’s 2008 Ryder Cup experience donation of $90,000.

Perry said he was honored to use his Ryder Cup participation to benefit his alma mater. Perry, who played golf at WKU from 1979-82, was inducted into the WKU Hall of Distinguished Alumni in 2007, WKU’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Kentucky Golf Hall of Fame in 2004.
