"The Southwest Section PGA is proud to announce our continued partnership with Nike Junior Golf Camps and US Sports Camps for the upcoming summer months of 2020,” says Flynn Makas, Partner and Community Program Manager for the SWPGA. “These camps offer a unique and exciting experience for our junior players to work on their craft as well as build new friendships along the way."
