The Louisiana Golf Association is pleased to announce the addition of a new staff member.  Brandon Monrose of Lafayette, Louisiana will serve as our 2018 USGA P.J.

As mentioned above, Monrose is a native of Lafayette, Louisiana, and graduated from St. Thomas More High School where he was a multi-year honor student, participated in several sports, and was selected for first team all-district honors in football and baseball.  He attended Northwestern State University, in Natchitoches, Louisiana where he was a four-year NCAA Division I football letterman.  In 2015 he graduated with honors from NSU with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, and in 2017 earned a Master’s of Science degree in Health and Human Performance with a concentration in Sports Administration.  While in graduate school, Monrose was selected for a full-time athletic operations internship with the Louisiana State University Athletic Department under the direction of the Deputy Director of Athletics, Verge Ausberry.

“We are excited to have Brandon work with us next year and are confident that he will gain much insight into all facets of golf administration.  His education, interpersonal skills, work ethic, and background in sports make him the ideal fit for our team,” said Logan Ray.   Brandon will also get the opportunity to attend the 2018 USGA P.J. Boatwright, Jr. Intern Orientation at the USGA’s “Golf House” Headquarters in Far Hills, New Jersey in May. 

In 1991, the USGA established the P.J. Boatwright, Jr. Internship Program.  The program is named for the late P.J.
