Kelley Kling, a Middletown South graduate heading to Georgetown; Ryan McCormick, a Mater Dei graduate heading to St. John's; and Daniel Osborn, a Middletown North graduate bound for Brookdale Community College are the recipients of the Golf Association's Caddie Scholarship, according to a press release.
Kling caddies at Navesink in Middletown, McCormick at Suburban in Union, and Osborn at Beacon Hill in Atlantic Highlands.
NJSGA Caddie Scholars receive a minimum award of $3,500 per year for all incoming freshmen and new in-college recipients, according to the release. Last year, all existing scholarships were increased by $500 for the upcoming academic year. Since its inception in 1947, the Foundation has funded over $9 million to almost 2,500 caddie scholars.
The scholarships are funded through individual member contributions at the NJSGA’s member clubs that sponsor caddie programs. The applicant must have caddied at least two golfing seasons, document financial need and demonstrate an academic record consistent with college requirements.
