The WSGA’s America’s #1 Golf Internship with Patrick Koenig and Bobbi Stricker

When the Wisconsin State Golf Association (WSGA) announced its new marketing plan for 2021, golfers across the state of Wisconsin let out a collective gasp – one lucky guy or girl would get paid to play golf – a lot of golf.

Golf enthusiasts’ interests were piqued, and news of the internship became the top story on Golfweek.com as it was eventually shared over 5,000 times during the week of The Players Championship.

The State of the Game of Golf in Wisconsin

Oh, and live sports!
