    Education Topic: PGA HOPE ORLANDO for Military Veterans Learning skills and approaches in coaching Veterans with disabilities

David Windsor, National PGA Patriot Award Winner and Ken Juhn, NFPGA Patriot Award Winner were on hand to conduct an informative seminar about Adaptive Golf Training at Reunion Resort. These two gentlemen shared their experiences and training techniques for Veterans with different disabilities. Those in attendance realized the challenges these men and women face everyday and how the game of golf helps them cope with their struggles in life! Golf has become their savior and entertainment. We should do all we can to help them learn and enjoy the game. What a great day it was!




     

         

     

 








North Florida PGA Presents $100,000 to Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation

 
The North Florida PGA proudly presented Amy Saunders, daughter of Arnold Palmer and Kevin Bingham, CEO of Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation the check for $100,000 raised through our North Florida vs South Florida Challenge Cup Matches this past Fall! The presentation followed our annual Past Presidents Luncheon at Bay Hill on Friday, Jan. 13. Past presidents from our Section gather to offer their insight and advice about Section and National affairs. Past Presidents in attendance were Gene Smith, Russ Libby, John Reger, Mike Warobick, Russ Libby and Tony Johnson. NFPGA Board and staff were also in attendance to hear the advice and stories from our legendary past leaders.

Amy Saunders and Kevin Bingham joined us for lunch along with NFPGA Foundation Board Members Charlotta Sorenstam and Adam Giery. Cup Team members Nick Frontero and Ryan Hritz were also on hand to help with the presentation of the check. It was such inspiring and interesting, as all of them had their own Arnold Palmer stories to share with Amy and the rest of the group. We are proud to be a part of the legacy of Mr. Palmer and help with the causes set forth by the Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation for the futures of so many people in need. Thank you Mr. Palmer for your contribution to the game and the world!
