The PGA WORKS Collegiate Championship, the most culturally significant championship in collegiate golf, annually hosts student-athletes enrolled in Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and other Minority-Serving Educational Institutions. 189 students from 41 schools competed in 2019.
The PGA WORKS Collegiate Championship is a stroke play and match play event contested across five divisions: NCAA Men’s Division I, Men’s Division II, an overall Women’s Team Division, Men’s Individual, and Women’s Individual. The Championship consists of 54 holes of stroke play. The individual competition is open to all minority men and women student-athletes playing collegiate golf at the Division I or Division II level, or participants who are enrolled in one of the PGA of America’s PGA Golf Management University Programs.
In 2019, 77% of the student-athletes who competed in the event were non-Caucasian, while 16% of the field’s home country was outside the United States.
