History makers?


A group of PGA Members look set to make history when they take part in the world’s first Speed Golf Triathlon in aid of The PGA Benevolent Fund.

Philip Dye, who works for The PGA Training Academy as a training executive, Luke Willett and Jon Hartley will join a small team of amateur golfers to complete the challenge on September 7, 2019.

Starting with 18-holes on the world-famous Brabazon course at The Belfry, the group will aim to complete the round in the fastest time possible before diving into a one-mile open water swim. After shaking a quick dry down, the team will complete a challenging 50-mile bike ride around the Midlands to round-up the challenge.

Dye said: “Working at The PGA National Training Academy, I get to see all the great work the team does in order to support our Members, but having listened to a presentation from Tristan Crew at the annual members’ meeting I felt I could do more to support the membership and especially those members who have fallen on difficult times.

“The objective of The PGA benevolent fund is to provide support by way of grants to PGA Members who are in need, hardship or distress and you can learn more by following the link below to hear from PGA members who have benefitted from the fund.”
