"I fell in love with golf in my early 20s and have been blessed to play some beautiful courses and meet a lot of wonderful people along the way," Jay says. "I have been an OGA member for many years but have also learned about the deep commitment that the PNGA has for educating and growing the game and the membership it serves. Taking my love for the sport and combining it with my passion for advertising and marketing for the PNGA is a dream come true."
