Michael Vick, PGA Named Director, Amateur Competitions

Vick to operate Kentucky Golf Association’s tournaments starting this season.

LOUISVILLE, KY (March 17, 2023) – Golf House Kentucky has named Michael Vick, PGA as the Director, Amateur Competitions. Vick has been with the organization in some capacity since 2019, beginning his tenure as a USGA Boatwright intern that summer. In 2020, he worked in a part-time capacity as the Junior Operations Coordinator. He was promoted to a full-time role in 2021 as the Director, Junior Golf and organized Kentucky PGA Junior Tour events along with many of the state’s marquee high school championships each of the last two seasons.

Now, Vick is receiving his latest promotion at Golf House Kentucky and will begin leading the Kentucky Golf Association’s tournament operations. The list of events he will oversee includes the Clark’s Pump-N-Shop Championship Series and the KGA Am Series among other competitions.

For Vick, someone who has spent most of his life in Kentucky, which includes graduating from John Hardin High School and Eastern Kentucky University, this role provides the opportunity to continue serving golfers of his state while expanding on his experience in golf administration.

“I am extremely excited to start the next phase of my career,” said Vick. “I look forward to working with the Kentucky Golf Association and to continue making an impact in Kentucky golf. Being the Director, Junior Golf the past two years has been a complete full-circle moment for me as I grew up playing on the Kentucky PGA Junior Tour. The next step is bittersweet because we have some of the best junior golfers and families anywhere in the country, and I will miss seeing them weekly at events.”

“Mike has been an amazing team member over the last few years and has really had a positive influence on the Junior Tour and our entire operation,” explained Sally Morgan, PGA Executive Director at Golf House Kentucky. “While it is bittersweet to lose him from the Junior Tour, I am confident he will be a tremendous asset to the KGA tournament program. I am very excited to see him move into this new role!”

Vick’s debut as Director, Amateur Competitions will come at KGA Am Series #1, which is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, April 25 at Danville Country Club.

Golf House Kentucky is in the process of determining Vick’s successor as the next Director, Junior Tour and will announce that hiring in the coming days.
