#PlayInMay and support the Golf Foundation’s Unleash Your Drive in Schools initiative

Planning on getting out on the course this May? Make your round count by supporting the Golf Foundation’s Unleash Your Drive in Schools initiative.

Golfers across the UK are being invited to support Unleash Your Drive in Schools, a Golf Foundation initiative aimed at improving the mental wellbeing of young people through golf.

All golfers need to do to help is sign up and get ready to #PlayInMay, entering any score in May along with a £5 minimum donation to the Golf Foundation.

Entrants can win one of 40 places at the Unleash Your Drive Final at Wentworth in August, while the winning three scores on the day will earn a place in the BMW PGA Championship Pro-Am in September.

The #PlayInMay donations will boost the Golf Foundation’s bid to extend the reach of Unleash Your Drive to every school in the UK. Five years in the making, this mental wellbeing initiative is creating exciting results since its launch in September 2023, with 500 schools already signed up.

Golf Foundation President Nick Dougherty launched the #PlayInMay campaign at the House of Commons in March and espoused the benefits of the organisation’s Unleash Your Drive in Schools initiative.

“Mental toughness is important because all of the research tells us that mentally tough youngsters do better academically, career wise and perhaps most importantly in terms of their overall life happiness and resilience,” he said.

“We believe all golfers who have themselves benefited from golf would be happy to help us to increase the confidence and resilience of our youngsters through Unleash Your Drive. That is why we are asking them to Play in May and make a small donation to create a massive national benefit for young people and the wider sport.”
