The Academy’s continuing goal is to not only develop great golfing talent but to create a better, stronger, and more inclusive golfing community.

“The I Got This Foundation hopes that this inaugural Academy will serve as a golf teaching and instructional model for other athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” says Lindsey Corbin, President of the I Got This Foundation.

“This initiative will pave the way for these athletes to play alongside friends and family, compete in leagues with peers, join high school golf teams and enjoy a lifelong skill that delivers many rewards and rich experiences. The Academy not only reflects my sister Amy’s passion for the sport but also helps her pay it forward, giving others the opportunity to experience the many joys of golf.”
