The 2021-22 PGA Tour season gets underway in mid-September and the University of Georgia will once again lead the nation with 11 proud alumni competing full-time on Tour this season. These alums not only bring great pride and recognition to the University by showcasing their talents at the highest level of competition, but they have also agreed to give back to their alma mater by pledging to make a contribution back to UGA for every birdie they make throughout the PGA Tour season.
We welcome all UGA alumni and fans to show their support of these talented players by making a pledge today. Bulldog Nation can take pride in following the Dawgs on Tour this fall and throughout next spring and summer by pledging a fixed amount for each birdie made by any number of our 11 alums on Tour for any desired amount of time throughout the season. Contributions will provide the necessary resources for current and future student-athletes to continue competing for SEC and National Championship for years to come. Donors have the ability to earmark funds towards select UGA Golf funds or the general UGA Athletics fund. Donors will receive updates on each player’s progress and invoices for your pledge payments throughout the season.
The Dawgs on Tour Birdie Challenge will begin September 16th at the Fortinet Championship in Napa, CA and will conclude at the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta in August of 2022. This is a unique way for our fans to have an even greater rooting interest in the Dawgs on Tour while also providing our UGA Men’s Golf Alumni with an extra incentive to making as many birdies as possible throughout the PGA Tour season.
Demonstrate your passion for UGA Golf by investing in current and future student-athletes today! Thank you in advance for your consideration of support and participation in this unique program.
