Madison and Dhanna would have never met if not for PGA Jr. League

Best friends Madison Rios and Dhanna Lopez would have never met had it not been for a desire to learn and play golf! The girls were introduced to the game through community outreach programs and have since become involved in a number of golf programs, including PGA Jr. League. Their Captain, Anthony "A-Rod" Rodriguez, is the Head PGA Professional at Mosholu Golf Course in Bronx, New York, as well as the Director of New York Player Development for The First Tee of Metropolitan New York. Coach A-Rod leads four PGA Jr. League teams of 40 players, 12 of whom received scholarships through PGA REACH’s partnership with DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation Sports Matter grant.
