I Got This Foundation
On January 29, 2019 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open’s Dream Day on the famous 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course, Amy Bockerstette, who has Down syndrome, demonstrated to the golfing world what a determined athlete with self-confidence and a positive attitude can achieve. While playing with PGA TOUR players Gary Woodland and Matt Kuchar during a Tuesday practice round, Amy hit the par 3 tee shot 117 yards into a greenside bunker, splashed her sand shot to within 8 feet of the pin, and made her par putt in front of a roaring crowd. I GOT THIS Foundation was born out of this moment, which was captured on video by the PGA TOUR and has since gone viral, receiving more than 51 million views on social media platforms.
