Sharp’s primary responsibilities will be to help execute program elements that support the mission and purpose of the Michigan PGA’s Foundation, including PGA HOPE and junior golf initiatives, such as PGA Jr. League and Drive, Chip & Putt.

“Golf has been an instrumental part of my life for many years, not only as a player but in working with young golfers and helping to promote the game,” said Sharp. “Now I have an opportunity to work with the Michigan PGA and serve in the PGA WORKS Fellowship, which presents me with an incredible opportunity to start a career in golf. I am very excited for this new journey in my life.”

Trevor Mohnke and Kaylee Sharai were named Michigan PGA Section interns for the summer. Mohnke, a senior at Michigan State, is a finance major who has a passion for working with junior golfers. He spent the last three summers working with the First Tee of Michigan.

“It means a lot to be given this position, so I can give back to the golf community that gave so much to me when I was growing up,” said, Mohnke. “Being able to touch the lives of others around an amazing game is something I have always wanted to do, and now I have that chance this summer and I am very grateful for it.”

Sharai is an incoming junior at Michigan State and is also a finance major. As an Evans Scholar, Sharai knows the meaning of hard work and looks forward to learning about the different career paths in the golf industry.

“Golf has always been the biggest passion in my life and to be named an intern of the Michigan PGA is truly a dream come true,” said Sharai.
