Some of Australia’s leading PGA Professionals, sporting celebrities and golf industry personalities will assemble at Keperra Country Golf Club in honour of their great mate Jarrod Lyle for the second Annual PGA Charity Golf Day.
To be held Tuesday 4 December, the PGA Charity Golf Day will hope to capitalise on a standout first staging in 2017 which saw the likes of 2017 Australian PGA champion Cameron Smith as well as fellow Professionals Rod Pampling, Deyen Lawson, Michael Sim, Peter Senior, Chris Wood and Michael Wright all attend.
Driven by PGA TOUR Professional John Senden, the PGA Charity Day successfully raised $40,000 in 2017 for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation and QLD Golf Foundation.
John Senden will once again play host for the 2018 Charity Day at his home club of Keperra with all funds raised going to the Jarrod Lyle Family Trust following the passing of the much-loved Australian golfer earlier this year.
“I’m so glad we’ll be raising money for the Lyle family during the PGA Charity Golf Day,” said Senden who will this year be in attendance for the day.
“I was overwhelmed with the support we garnered last year and with the event really starting to gain some momentum, hopefully we can do the same for Jarrod’s wife Briony and his girls in 2018.
“The golf fraternity is certainly a very tight one and we’ve seen great support for the Lyle’s from all over the world so I’m confident we can eclipse last year’s $40,000 total.”
An online auction will begin over the coming weeks to assist in fundraising efforts and one of the big ticket items will no doubt be a Jarrod Lyle Titleist staff bag signed by PGA TOUR stars during this year’s Baracuda Championship including Australian’s Aaron Baddeley, Matt Jones, Stuart Appleby, Rod Pampling, Robert Allenby and Cameron Percy.
With only 30 teams available in the PGA Charity Day, golfers are encouraged to secure their spot early to avoid disappointment. Entry includes 18 holes of golf, cart, breakfast and lunch as well as a gift pack boasting PGA merchandise and a Leuk the Duck wood cover.
