In pursuit of our vision for a golf industry workforce that mirrors America, the PGA of America is launching PGA JobMatch for the 2021 PGA Championship, 2021 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, 2021 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, and the 43rd Ryder Cup. It’s of great importance to the PGA of America to demonstrably give back to our PGA Championship host communities, and one of the greatest impacts we want to make in each of our host cities is creating opportunities for talent from diverse backgrounds to get a taste of working in support of major championship operations.
About these opportunities:
