The 14th Annual New Jersey Evans Scholars Classic returns to Hawk Pointe in Washington, N.J. on Monday, June 13.
This is an open event that encourages participation from local Evans and New Jersey Caddie Scholar Alumni and friends of both associations. For more information about the event, or to register, please visit this page.
The New Jersey Evans Scholars Classic began when a group of Evans Scholars Alumni living in New Jersey connected in an effort to give back to the Program.
The Evans Scholars Foundation awards full tuition and housing scholarships to high achieving caddies with limited financial means. Established in 1930 by the Western Golf Association and celebrated golf amateur "Chick" Evans Jr., the Foundation administers the nation's largest scholarship program for caddies. Currently, 910 students are enrolled at 19 universities, including 14 where the Evans Scholars Foundation owns and operates scholarship houses. More than 10,000 men and women have graduated as Evans Scholars.
Jeff Harison, Vice President of Education at the WGA, reported last year that this event has raised nearly $400,000 to support the Evans Scholars from New Jersey. "This is the first time New Jersey will have two Evans Scholars currently in college at the same time."
Tyler Citrin, a caddie at Baltusrol Golf Club and a rising junior at Indian University, and Tommy Marcus, a caddie at Knickerbocker Country Club and a rising senior at the University of Michigan are currently New Jersey Evans Scholars.
"The Evans Scholarship is life changing," says Citrin. My world has dramatically changed forever because of my experience as an Evans Scholar. I am forever grateful."
