About Play Golf America University: Play Golf America University is a PGA of America college and university golf program, designed to teach and engage students in the game of golf through PGA Professional instruction and other golf programs. Since being launched, The PGA of America has distributed $7.3 million to 76 participating colleges and universities throughout the United States, including $6.1 million on behalf of members of U.S. Ryder Cup Teams as a means to support this initiative. WKU students have benefited from Hall of Famer Kenny Perry’s 2008 Ryder Cup experience donation of $90,000. The donation was part of the 2008 Ryder Cup Outreach Program, used to launch a Play Golf America University program at WKU. Perry said he was honored to use his Ryder Cup participation to benefit his alma mater. Perry, who played golf at WKU from 1979-82, was inducted into the WKU Hall of Distinguished Alumni in 2007, WKU’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Kentucky Golf Hall of Fame in 2004.
