PLAY - TGA Foundation Programs

The TGA Foundation helps golfers PLAY golf.

Legends Junior Tour
Bob Romero Scholarship
Junior Girls Travel Fund

After getting a START in the game, new golfers need to test their new skills on a golf course. TGA Foundation PLAY programs help golfers take this important next step and help golfers access golf at the relevant level for their game.  Whether golfers want to get involved in local, entry-level outings, or compete at an elite level, PLAY programs work to ensure their goals are not limited by access or finanical resources.

Legends Junior Tour - "College Golf Starts Here"

The Legends Junior Tour stands at the pinnacle of junior golf competition in Texas and offers world-class competition, world ranking opportunities and the attention of collegiate coaches without traveling beyond your own home state.  
 
The LJT is part of the Texas Junior Golf Alliance which was created to give junior golfers greater access to top tier competition statewide and ease the burden of travel expense.  In coordination with the Northern and Southern Texas Sections of the PGA of America (NTPGA, STPGA) and the Houston Golf Association (HGA), the alliance simplifies qualifying for the state’s most high profile events and provides playing opportunities and a natural progression for players competing at the NTPGA, STPGA and HGA levels.

Providing a path from junior golf to competition at the highest level creates valuable opportunities, a long term commitment to the game and fosters lasting golfer engagement beyond junior golf programming.

Bob Romero Scholarship

The Bob Romero Scholarship provides financial support to allow junior golfers the opportunity to challenge themselves in tournament play on the Legends Junior Tour.  The scholarship is funded solely through donations from TGA Foundation supporters.  Donations are requested and accepted during the championship registration process for Legends Junior Tour and TGA Championships, offering current championship players an opportunity to pave the way for the next generation.

Junior Girls Travel Fund

In 1986, the late Inez “Nez” Muhleman established the Junior Girls Travel Fun to ensure that junior girls from all over the state of Texas who qualify for the U.S. Junior Girls Championship have the opportunity and resources needed to go play.  An opportunity to participate in a USGA Championship might open doors for a college scholarship, professional golf career or a lifetime love of amateur competition.

The Junior Girls Travel Fund Committee was formed in 2011 when Mrs. Muhleman retired from the USGA after receiving its highest volunteer award, the Joe Dey Award.  The JGTF Committee is committed to continuing ‘Nez’s efforts and ideals to support all eligible junior girls.
