On behalf of PGA WORKS, the PGA of America, and PGD Global, we invite you to join us for “Beyond the Green,” a PGD Global Hybrid Production, in conjunction with the 43rd Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin, on Monday, September 20, 2021. For the first time at the Ryder Cup, this special event will host in-person participants and also create a virtual experience for over 4,000 viewers from around the world.

PGA WORKS is dedicated to bringing young people together to explore the many career opportunities that exist in golf and help underserved youth learn the game’s true values. “Beyond The Green” is an initiative that gives high school and college students from underrepresented backgrounds the opportunity to be a part of the game through career exploration. This year, “Beyond The Green” welcomes MKE Fellows as an organization attendee. PGA WORKS will also provide access to the Wisconsin PGA WORKS Fellowship, as well as financial and programmatic support for golf initiatives.

Join us virtually to enjoy this special experience!
