Junior organisers, volunteers, teachers and PGA professionals all gathered at Wentworth during the BMW PGA Championship for the annual Golf Foundation President’s Awards.

A packed crowd of VIP guests heard eight remarkable stories of commitment to grass roots golf as Golf Foundation President Ken Schofield CBE presented the awards.
