What does “Playing to Your Handicap” really mean?
Meet the 2017 USGA P.J. Boatwright Jr. Interns
In 1991, the USGA established the P.J. Boatwright Internship program, which is designed to give experience to individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in golf administration. The internship also assists state and regional golf associations in the promotion of amateur golf. The DSGA is granted two interns each year, who will assist with tournaments, providing IT support, handicapping, course rating, marketing efforts and other activities to support golf in Delaware.
