Press release: Tournament Golf College & Athletes USA Golf Scholarship Partnership, London, United Kingdom 3rd September
Athletes USA and Tournament Golf College are excited to announce a brand new partnership aimed at providing dual career pathways for student golf athletes.
The partnership will provide golfers from around the world the opportunity to study and play golf either in the United States of America or at the world class facilities Tournament Golf College offers in the United Kingdom and Portugal.
Both organizations will be working closely together to advise student golfers about their best options and development pathways, allowing them to make the most informed decision possible about their education and career futures.
Athletes USA Placement Director Nick Flynn mentions “As a former British golfer myself, the option to study and play golf in Europe was limited, and America was the only option. We continue to be the world leaders in helping hundreds of student athletes gain a US Golf Scholarship, and we are excited to be working with Tournament Golf College. Their programme is a great development in European University golf and education, offering the closest environment to American College Golf in Europe. With this exclusive partnership we also look forward to helping offer this opportunity to American golfers who are looking to transfer for a year or so to Europe in order to gain further experiences.”
The partnership will also work closely with the Athletes World Foundation (AWF), and TGC will work with AWF with the aim of providing a golf scholarship programme that will promote European Golf Dual Career Pathways from 2016 onwards. With AWF’s strong connection base and strategic partnerships with many golf federations this programme will sure to be in high demand.
TGC Head of College Alex Lindsay added “TGC is already Europe’s leading Golf University. Since 2009 over 100 students have graduated with a British University Degree, gained while they were improving their golf and playing competitively against some of the best players in Europe. Some are now playing on Professional Tours in Europe and Asia, and others have moved into careers in the Golf industry all over the world. We have also had students move on from TGC to study in the United States, which made us aware of the many placement companies for these services. We were aware that most of these charge large, up front payments for their services, with no guarantee of success. We were pleased to discover that Athletes USA only charge on a results basis, and we are looking forward to working with them.”
