Providing The True OLYMPIC Opportunity
Have you ever wanted to do something great, but never thought it was even possible?
How many of you still have that dream? How many of you still cling on to the little ounce of hope, that one day, you will have to opportunity to live out your dream and experience what it’s truly like to be on the big stage. Even if it’s for just one day.
Professional Golfer and 4 Time Olympic Gold Medalist Sven Tumba had the same dream when he founded the World Amateur Golfers Championship. Yet, his dream was to be able to provide the same experience he had as a professional and give it to the average individual.
“the Ultimate Olympic experience for the average person. To give the opportunity to those regardless of age, gender, or skill level, the honor of playing for one’s country and the pride of wearing it’s colors. That dream is the World Golfers Championship.”
- Sven Tumba, WAGC Founder and 4 Time Olympic Gold Medalist
