“Fairways Fore Change is an inspirational program aimed at breaking down barriers and making the game of golf more inclusive and accessible for everyone,” said Korn Ferry Tour President Alex Baldwin. “That is a significant priority for us on the Korn Ferry Tour, and I’m honored to be a part of Fairways Fore Change – and surrounded by some of the foremost leaders in this space – as we all do our best to make the game of golf more diverse moving forward.”
