Play In May is LIVE

Nick Dougherty and the Golf Foundation’s new Play In May campaign kicked off today, with every golfer in GB&I being asked to support ‘Unleash Your Drive in Schools’ via a special competition.

Thanks to the DP World Tour and Wentworth Club, the Golf Foundation are offering every UK golfer the chance to sign up and ‘Play In May’, for the opportunity to play in the BMW PGA Championship Pro-Am at Wentworth. The competition has 40 places on offer in the Unleash Your Drive Final at Wentworth Club in August, where the winning three players will earn a spot in the Pro-Am event in September.

The #PlayInMay support (a £5 donation must accompany every round played) will help the Golf Foundation’s bid to extend the reach of Unleash Your Drive to every school in the UK. Five years in the making, this mental wellbeing initiative is already creating exciting results since its launch in September 2023, with over 500 schools having joined in so far. Early results have indicated a 19% increase in mental toughness among pupils on the programme.
