The Cameron Champ Foundation hosted a clinic for junior golfers on February 15 at Chester Washington Golf Course, a hub of Black golf in Los Angeles since the 1950s.

Tony Finau and Sean Foley, Cameron’s coach and one of the biggest names in golf instruction, were also on hand.

We are committed to growing and diversifying golf, and we believe that events like this, held at courses like this, can be a defining moment in a young person’s lifelong journey with the game.

Thanks to Nike, Chevron, Beats by Dre and Malbon Golf for partnering with us to make the event possible, to Senator Steven Bradford for our official recognition from the California State Senate, and to Dryvebox for bringing their mobile golf simulator to the course! Thanks also to Roger Steele, Jake Hutt and Manolo Vega for coming out.

Champ Teams With Els for Autism and SAP to #DriveChange

Cameron Champ teamed up with Ernie Els and SAP in April to raise $55,000 for the Els for Autism Foundation.

SAP donated $2,500 to Els’s foundation for every birdie that Cameron and Els made on Fridays in April, which is Autism Awareness Month. Their combined total of 22 birdies meant a big donation.

This is a very meaningful cause for Cameron, whose sister, Madison, is autistic.
