“The NIKE Golf Fall Scramble keeps gaining momentum every year and it couldn’t have been done without NIKE Golf’s support,” said Ontario PGA President, Dustin Kerr-Taylor. “NIKE Golf has continued to see growth in the marketplace as a result of their partnership with us and I look forward to seeing continued growth for many years to come,” added Kerr-Taylor.
