What a stellar list of legends! The field boasts 430 victories across the PGA and European Tours, including 59 majors and 12 World Golf Hall of Fame Members!
You have a unique opportunity to be a part of the fun! We have been extended the privilege to have a PGA chaperone with each group every day during the tournament! You will have the chance to walk with the groups and witness the fun and excitement, similar to the experience at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. You’ll also receive MSR’s for this volunteer service along with a commemorative shirt.
We’ll need volunteers for each day and you may choose the day you’d like to be a chaperone. Register ONLINE only and be sure to include your shirt size. Feel free to volunteer for as many days as you’d like too! Chaperones will be limited to first-come first-serve as registered. We’ll assign the chaperones to the groups by lottery (no requests please).
Let’s give back and have some fun doing it. We look forward to seeing you there! Let’s show the world why we are the best Section in the country because we step up and get involved promoting the game and helping those in need!

The North Florida Section of the PGA of America held its 34th Annual Meeting at Reunion Resort in Orlando on December 2. PGA Members from around the Section gathered to recap an exceptional year and hear about the future. It was an election year for the Secretary and Tournament Chairman positions as well. Four Secretary Candidates volunteered their services and expertise to lead the Section in the upcoming generation. The candidates were: Kevin Baker; Reunion Resort, Tim Beckwith; The Oaks Club, John Falcone; Dunedin CC and John Hughes; Golf Digest Schools. Although all are exceptional gentlemen, John Hughes won the election and will be the new Secretary of the North Florida PGA. John is also the PGA of America’s 2014 Horton Smith Award Winner. The candidates for Tournament Chairperson were: David Hronek (incumbent) and Jennifer Borocz; Jacksonville University. David Hronek won the election and remains the Tournament Chairman. The day began with the inspiration and presentations from Dr. Bob Winters and Daniel Flynn with revolutionary mental game topics that unlock the ultimate performance capabilities for all golfers. It was an inspiring meeting and always great to see PGA brothers and sisters gather annually to support their association and the game they love. Tony Johnson; Christovich Associates will now be the Honorary President and Mike Touhey; Downs Golf and Practice, will ascend to the role of President along with Mike Lynch; Golf Channel, as the Vice President. A special thank you to Tony Johnson for his many years of service and leadership. Jack Binswanger; Village Green GC, assumes his new role at District 13 Director for the PGA of America, as well.
