CHASKA, MN, USA – (Sept. 27, 2016) GOLFZON (www.golfzonsimulator.com), a global leader in golf simulators, began Ryder Cup week by donating a state-of-the-art simulator to PGA REACH, the philanthropic arm of the PGA of America, for use by the Minneapolis location for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The PGA of America made the announcement on Monday at Chaska Par 30 course, located adjacent to Hazeltine National Golf Club, site of this week’s Ryder Cup. Derek Sprague, the President of the PGA of America, spoke on Monday morning to open its Veterans & Family Golf Clinic and recognized GOLFZON YUWON GROUP Chairman Young Chan Kim for the company’s contribution.
“Our friends at GOLFZON have been really supportive for what we’ve tried to do from a military perspective and have been gracious enough to donate a simulator in a location where our veterans can enjoy it year round,” PGA REACH Senior Director Scott Kmiec said before Chairman Kim, GOLFZON executive Tommy Lim and PGA of America President Derek Sprague, PGA of America Honorary President Allen Wronowski, PGA HOPE’s Chris Nowak and 2002 PGA Championship winner Rich Beem gathered for photos and mingled with veterans.
