This past year, some 500 golfers from around the state played on the Pepsi Junior Golf Tour. “This is the first time we’ve awarded scholarships,” says Mark Hill, executive director of the KGA-KPGA. “These youth and their parents invest so much time and effort into golf, so it’s great for us to give something back to them in a meaningful way.”
PowerBilt, which is based in Kentucky, brought the HB Foundation and the Pepsi Junior Golf Tour together. “This is one role we can play in helping the youth in the state where so many golfers have grown up playing PowerBilt clubs,” says Ross Kvinge, president of PowerBilt.
