Dallas, Texas – The Northern Texas PGA Junior Golf Foundation is pleased to announce a new partnership with Jerry J. Ransom to help grow the game of golf in North Texas.

Ransom is from Greenville, Texas, and is an avid golfer. He has supported the Northern Texas PGA Junior Golf Foundation’s growth of the game initiatives for many years, but wanted to do more to give back and further support the NTPGA’s initiatives.  
The enhanced partnership has created a new and unique fundraising event called the Jerry J. Ransom Pro-Junior-Am. The event will be played at Royal Oaks Country Club in Dallas on June 5. Each team will be comprised of three amateurs, one current or recent NTPGA Junior Golf Foundation Member and one PGA golf professional.  Sponsorships have been set at $3,000 per three-person amateur team.

The funds raised from the event will benefit the Northern Texas PGA Junior Golf Foundation’s broad-based community outreach programs including the Foundation’s college scholarship program, summer camps, internships and the junior tour. More than 10,000 kids benefit each year from this support and the positive life lessons encouraged by the game of golf in North Texas.   
“The Northern Texas PGA Junior Golf Foundation does so many wonderful things to grow the game for kids in North Texas, and with our new partnership, I look forward to making a bigger impact,” said Jerry Ransom. “Creating a new event, which focuses on the kids and incorporates them on each team, almost like they are the ‘tour pros’ for each group, will be unique and a lot of fun for all involved. I’m very excited.”

 “We are truly honored to partner with Jerry Ransom to continue to grow the game in our region,” said Mark Harrison, Executive Director / CEO. “The Jerry J. Ransom Pro-Junior-Am promises to be an exceptional and exciting event. You never know, a future superstar could now just be getting started thanks to the generosity of Jerry Ransom.”
