This annual event connects thousands of golfers from around the world to inspirational stories that have shaped the game from its inception through to the present day. One highlight in store for 2023 is a digital tour of the famous USGA Golf House Museum that will take viewers inside the stories of women and men who have paved the way for today’s professionals. In addition to the amazing memorabilia from Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Annika Sorenstam, there is the golf club used by Alan Shepard for the famous shot on the moon during the Apollo 14 moon landing.

The Tour also includes the remarkable story of Althea Gibson, who became the first African American woman to win a Tennis Grand Slam event, switched sports to excel on the LPGA Tour and then continued on to become the first female U.S. state athletic commissioner.  Other fantastic exhibits include stories of triumph in the face of adversity including the story of Babe Zaharias, one of the U.S’s most impressive female athletes, who continued to play after a cancer diagnosis and became known not only for her athletic abilities but as a public advocate for cancer awareness.  Plus a section chartering Ben Hogan’s remarkable comeback from his 1949 life-threatening car accident, defying the odds to win on Tour again.

Elisa Gaudet, Founder of Women’s Golf Day, and the WGD team created WGD Palooza in 2021 at a time where connection was more significant than ever. That driving force remains at the heart of the celebrations as she explains: “The pandemic inspired us to create a virtual event that would provide connections that many of us missed.  This connectivity and unity remains at the heart of WGD Palooza as we bring together people from all around the globe to learn and get inspired by some of the most incredible stories from the world of golf. Add in fantastic sponsor giveaways, celebrity messages and the chance to be part of a truly global event no matter where you live, and WGD Palooza 2023 is set to the perfect start of our new weeklong celebrations.”
