With only a few tournaments left, our collegiate competitors are getting their last swings in before the fall season comes to a close. From the chilly autumn winds of Rehoboth Beach to mid-70’s and sun in Stanford, the PKBGT alumni were heavily represented this past week.
Meanwhile in Pinehurst, the first leg of Q-Series is underway and eight PKB alumni are in the running to earn their 2019 LPGA membership.
We dive into the best of this week in our #ThrowbackThursday College (and Professional) Roundup!
