PGA Hope Secretary’s Cup kicks off at Indian Springs Golf Course
TULSA, Okla. –As the PGA Championship practice rounds kicked off Monday in Southern Hills, another significant golf event honoring our nation’s military veterans kicked off at Indian Springs in Broken Arrow. The PGA HOPE Secretary’s Cup is an annual competition for veterans across the country.
Twelve teams gathered here at the Indian Springs club to compete. HOPE stands for “Helping Our Patriots Everywhere,” which is associated with the PGA National Foundation.
It is the only veterans golf program certified by the Veterans Association as a “rehabilitation program”. This not only helps veterans exercise, but also helps them manage their mental health, which includes managing PTSD, anxiety, and isolation.
“We are truly passionate about the game of golf and what it can do to help individuals and give them opportunity in their lives. PGA Hope really saves lives and we’re really proud of that,” said PGA of America President Jim Richerson.
Competitors hailed from as far away as New York and California, with each team being accompanied by a PGA Professional for the 9-hole competition.
