The Winners’ Program, in its 11th year, is a golf and grades initiative of the TGA Foundation in partnership with the LPGA/USGA Girls Golf of Texas Chapters. The program was created in 2008 to promote achievement in golf and in the classroom. Girls are encouraged to make good grades and turn in report cards throughout the year.
The Winners’ Program also honors the late Toni Wiesner through the Wiesner’s Winners program and the Toni Wiesner Cup. These programs, conducted in conjunction with Winners’ Program, recognize the outstanding players in the LPGA/USGA Girls’ Golf sites by awarding competitive prizes at each site, and the Toni Wiesner Cup to the winning team at the annual Texas Challenge.
The Texas Challenge is conducted as part of the Winners’ Program and features statewide competition between the selected chapters of the LPGA / USGA Girls’ Golf Sites. The Texas Challenge honors the late Toni Wiesner by awarding The Toni Wiesner Cup to the winning site. Toni Wiesner was a long-time friend to the WTGA, and was a member of the USGA Junior Girls’ golf committee. Toni possessed a wonderful determination and competitive spirit and always displayed graciousness, whether in victory or defeat. These qualities make Toni the perfect example for the participants in the Winners’ Program and the Texas Challenge.
GrantsThrough grant opportunities, the TGA is excited to give back to the LPGA / USGA Girls Programs involved in the Winners’ Program. Grant applications will be distributed in 2019. For more information, contact Kelly Kilgo at 214-468-8942, or Kkilgo@txga.org.
