Ambassador of Golf

Presented by FirstEnergy Foundation


The Ambassador of Golf event is a fundraiser benefiting Northern Ohio charities serving on the frontlines of health and human care. In 2022, the Kaulig Companies Championship and the Ambassador of Golf event distributed $950,000 to dozens of Northeast Ohio charities, including: Akron Children’s Hospital, UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, Summa Health System, Cleveland Clinic Akron General, Summa Health System, The First Tee, United Way Summit & Medina Counties, the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, and the LeBron James Family Foundation.

NBA Champion Stephen Curry is the 2023 recipient of the Ambassador of Golf Award presented by FirstEnergy Foundation. Curry will be recognized on Saturday, July 8, 2023, at the 2023 Kaulig Companies Championship at Firestone Country Club in a private event that serves as a charity fundraiser. The Ambassador of Golf Award honors a person who has fostered the ideals of the game on an international level and whose concerns for others extends beyond the golf course.

In addition to Curry being named the 2023 Ambassador of Golf, PGA TOUR Champions has partnered with UNDERRATED Golf to host an event at Firestone Country Club featuring 96 junior golfers that includes 48 boys and 48 girls ages 12 to 18 from across the country. This event will be hosted from Thursday, July 6 through Saturday, July 8 on the South Course at Firestone Country Club – the same course where the Kaulig Companies Championship will be contested the following week.
