Playing golf since the age of nine, Jennifer Ha earned her LPGA card in 2017, and received a Power Up Bursary in 2018. This year, with the support of Power Up, she’s working harder than ever to hone her game and play the pro circuit.
Selena Costabile is one of five talented golfers to receive a DCM Power Up Bursary in 2018. Thanks to the bursary’s financial assistance, marketing support, and many other benefits, Costabile has been diligently honing her skills – and has managed to improve her drive by 20 yards.
Sandra Miñarro’s exceptional golf skills earned her a DCM Power Up Bursary in 2018. Now, as she gets into the swing of the 2019 season, she reports that the bursary’s many benefits have given her the support and freedom to fully focus on her game.
For Hannah Hellyer, the DCM Power Up Bursary has made all the difference in helping her achieve her golf goals. Most notably, Hellyer recently made the cut at a Symetra Tour event – Florida’s Natural Charity Classic at the Winter Haven Golf Club.
DCM is delighted to report that Power Up Bursary recipient Valérie Tanguay has won her first professional tournament: the Southwest Louisiana Open, which took place March 19–22, 2019 at the National Golf Club of Louisiana.
A native of Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, Valérie Tanguay has made great strides on the green since first taking up golf at age 13. She was her high school golf team’s MVP in 2013 and again in 2014, and that same year was named athlete of the year at Cegep Champlain St. Lawrence. She then went on to play NCAA golf at the University of Oklahoma, where she graduated with an accounting degree. Currently pursuing her LPGA tour card, she now has a distinct competitive advantage as a recipient of the DCM Power Up Bursary.
