In its efforts to elevate women in both business and golf, KPMG welcomes the LPGA and female PGA members who qualify in the top nine spots of the LPGA Teaching and Club Professionals National Championship to compete alongside the pros in their LPGA Major event.
With the 2019 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship just around the corner, we’re taking a moment to learn about the nine women who earned exemptions to compete in this year’s tournament.
Each of these inspiring women helps grow the game of golf in their communities, shaping the swings and passion of their students every day.
They’re women who deserve to be celebrated, so we’re highlighting their backgrounds along with what they’re most looking forward to during competition week:
“To compete against the best players in the world in the KPMG Women's PGA Championship is a huge honor,” she says. “I am so happy that Club Professionals around the country have the opportunity to test our skills at a top-notch event hosted by the PGA of America.”
“I feel special to be able to represent the PGA and the LPGA in this event.”
“I am looking forward to testing my game on a Major Golf Course and learning whatever I can to help me become a more effective coach for my students!”
“Playing tournament golf is always a fun challenge, and this being an LPGA Major makes it even sweeter.”
“If I can be a role model for my local club members and other young girls, then it will have been a successful event.”
“Watching a child collapse in front of his classmates from cataplexy or have to quit his baseball team because he can no longer run to first base is tragic in my eyes…These are all reasons why I am so involved in raising awareness.” https://nicolejeray.com/
“I am looking forward to play and be able to have experiences not only as a player, but also as a golf instructor inside of the ropes.”
“I hope I am able to represent Woodland and the PGA of America with the highest class,” she says. “My ultimate goal is to inspire the future generations of female golfers to continue to pursue their dreams.”
“I hope to take away everything from this experience starting from picking up our courtesy car until the last competitor leaves the parking lot on Sunday. The experiences I embrace, learn, and share can help others develop their golf game and to continue to promote women's and girl's golf in my corner of the world.”
