When Jeff Fenstermacher found a professional LPGA bag in a used sporting goods store, he thought he hit the jackpot. For the reasonable price of $59.99, he got a real professional’s golf bag, complete with all sorts of personal paraphernalia — a book, a money clip, a range finder, golf balls, tees and more. Excited by his find, he put his own clubs in the bag and took it to his Advanced Short Game class with him at Golf Academy of America in San Diego.

Golf Academy of America will partner with national nonprofit Tee It Up for the Troops. As part of this agreement, Golf Academy of America will sponsor and support a series of fundraising golf events hosted this autumn and winter.
