Haelena Schwemmer of O’Fallon, MO Named the Recipient of the 2010 BMW Hole-In-One Scholarship at the 2011 BMW Championship
Woodcliff Lake, NJ – September 17, 2011… BMW today announced that Haelena Schwemmer of O’Fallon, Missouri was named the recipient of the 2010 BMW Hole-In-One Scholarship, which was awarded thanks to PGA TOUR player Sean O’Hair’s perfect shot on the 211- yard par 3 third hole at the 2010 BMW Championship. A caddy at the Persimmon Woods Golf Club in Weldon Spring, Missouri, Schwemmer recently entered her freshman year at the University of Missouri in Columbia.
The BMW Hole-In-One scholarship promotion grants a four-year Evans Scholarship in honor of any player to score the first hole-in-one on any hole during the BMW Championship, the penultimate event of the PGA TOUR playoffs for the FedExCup.
All proceeds from the BMW Championship benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation, one of the nation’s largest privately funded college scholarship programs, providing full university tuition and housing grants to deserving young caddies. Since BMW became a presenting sponsor of the tournament in 2007, the BMW Championship has raised over $9 million for the Evans Scholars Foundation.
