On Friday, March 31, Curry and KPMG announced a partnership in Curry’s Underrated Golf Tour with Stackhouse as the tour’s golf ambassador. The tour provides competitive outlets and leadership development opportunities to minorities and underserved youth nationwide.
A press release announcing the venture described it this way. “Underrated Golf is a purpose-driven business endeavor with the overarching commitment to provide equity, access and opportunity to student-athletes from every community by balancing participation in the sport to truly reflect our society. With a mission to increase the participation numbers amongst competitive golfers from diverse communities, Underrated Golf’s vision of the sport better reflects and balances the diversity of our society and provides access to the opportunities the game brings both on and off the course.”
The tour will begin in June with a stop at The Park West Palm in West Palm Beach, Florida. Then there are events scheduled at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, Paiute Golf Resort in Las Vegas, and Chambers Bay in Seattle.
“Underrated Golf launched with a mission to provide equity, access and opportunity to student-athletes from underrepresented communities,” Curry said. “As we enter our second year, we are driven to open more doors for diverse players and balance participation in the sport to truly reflect our society. Through our partnership with KPMG and Mariah Stackhouse as a brand ambassador, this program is reinforcing what a role model looks like and empowering young girls interested in Golf, by letting them know the game has a place for them. It’s inspiring to see everyone coming together to support this message and work towards creating positive change in the sport.”
