PGA supports, empowers, and develops young ladies to become (P)urpose-led, (U)nstoppable, (S)uccess-bound, and (H)ope-filled, so they can have the confidence to compete, succeed, and soar in an evolving and demanding world. McGrady’s program is built around providing the young ladies the 3 E’s of experience, examples, and exposure to showcase what is available and obtainable to the young ladies.
