Savannah golfer earns PGA of America scholarship

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Former Savannah Arts golf standout Rachel Wohn is a Clemson student, even though she’s yet to step foot on campus.

Wohn transferred to the school recently, leaving Christian Brothers University where she was a member of the golf team. She won’t be on the team at Clemson, but her life in golf just got a major boost thanks to the PGA of America.

Wohn is one of ten students to receive the PGA Works Golf Management University scholarship, given to students at one of the 18 accredited Golf Management universities.

The former three-time Savannah High School champion recently transferred to Clemson University for that program and hopes to one day work for the Golf Channel covering the PGA and LPGA Tours.

Wohn says after transferring schools to pursue her goals, earning this scholarship validates her decision.

“This is a sign that I need to keep pushing forward with my dream, and moving forward just knowing that this is the right path for me," Wohn says. “I think it’s a sign. It really is a sign. It’s a blessing. It’s the biggest blessing I could’ve ever asked for and I couldn’t be more grateful."

When she graduates, not only will she receive a diploma, but she will also become a PGA professional.
