About the Foundation

At I GOT THIS Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, we believe in people with intellectual disabilities.

By providing golf instruction, playing opportunities, and organized events, we strive to teach people with Down syndrome and other intellectual disabilities to play golf, paving the way for them to compete in leagues with typical peers, join high school teams, and enjoy the many social benefits of golf.

Golf is a sport where everyone plays the same game on the same field. Our vision is that people with intellectual disabilities become included in those games.

Amy Bockerstette

As a high school athlete, Amy Bockerstette broke barriers and captured local headlines when she competed in the Arizona High School Girls Golf Division I State Championship. After graduating high school, she made history by receiving a full athletic scholarship to play golf and attend Paradise Valley Community College and the headlines swelled to national. Amy is an athlete with Down syndrome, a physical and intellectual impairment.

Amy became a worldwide celebrity during a practice round at the 2019 WM Phoenix Open, when she was invited by the PGA Tour, to represent Special Olympics, and play the famously raucous par three 16th stadium hole at TPC Scottsdale with defending champion Gary Woodland and playing partner Matt Kuchar. After hitting her tee shot into a greenside bunker and confidently telling Woodland, “I got this,” she parred the hole with an 8-foot putt. The TOUR’s video capturing the moment went viral, receiving 60 million views to date across social media platforms. Reflecting in Golf.com, Woodland said, “I’ve been blessed to do a lot of cool things on the golf course but that is, by far, the coolest thing I’ve ever experienced.”

Later that year, to pay her good fortune forward, Amy and her family launched the I GOT THIS Foundation at her 21st birthday party in October, 2019, with a vision to grow the game of golf for people with Down syndrome and other intellectual disabilities. Breaking barriers once again in 2021, Amy became the first person with Down Syndrome to compete in a national collegiate championship at the NJCAA Women’s Golf Championship, solidifying her celebrity status when her history-making story once again captured international headlines.

Since completing her college career, Amy has stayed very active by competing in Special Olympics and Adaptive Golf tournaments, including the Special Olympics USA Games (Orlando 2022) and World Games (Berlin 2023), the U.S. Adaptive Open at Pinehurst No. 6 (2022 & 2023), the U.S. Disabled Open. She has also been selected to represent Team USA at The Cairns Cup, Disability Golf’s Premier Match Play Event, featuring Team USA vs. Team Europe, scheduled for August 2024 in Michigan.

Amy continues to represent the I GOT THIS Foundation, as a speaker and by attending various charity and corporate golf tournaments and fundraising events, where she advocates for people with disabilities and for inclusion.
