Just as it has since the event’s inception 13 years ago, The Fund collaborated with the Deutsche Bank Championship to provide caddies for the Thursday Pro-Am. This year, some 30 Ouimet Scholars and over 100 caddies representing a number of supporting clubs, took their spot under the straps to take part in the event.
Ouimet Scholars had the unforgettable opportunity to be inside the ropes with the stars of today including Jordan Spieth, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Zach Johnson and many more. In addition, Fund Directors distributed towels to all amateur competitors, taking a brief moment to extoll the virtues and benefits of Ouimet in the process.
Stay tuned to your TV set during tournament weekend as Fund Public Service Announcements will appear on coverage by television partners The Golf Channel and NBC.
Following the conclusion of the event, The Fund will proudly accept a post-tournament donation from event organizer Tiger Woods Foundation which will go towards the Tiger Woods Foundation Award, playing a significant role in making the dreams of higher education a reality for an inner-city young man or woman.
