We back jack!

KPMG may have Phil Mickelson, but the Advanced Strategy Center has Jack Griffen. Our We Back Jack initiative is our formal sponsorship of young professional golfer, Jack Griffen, and his quest to break into the PGA ranks. 

Jack Griffen--an occasional project director for the center--began his full time pursuit as a golf professional on June 1st, 2014. In his professional bio he notes: 


"At the age of ten I developed a passion for the game of golf that has continued to grow stronger every year. I began my competitive career playing junior tournaments in middle school, grooming me for high school golf at Notre Dame Preparatory, where we became state champions. Following high school, I played four years of amateur within the Arizona Golf Association while completing my degree in Supply Chain Management at the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.Upon graduating college in May of 2014 at the age of 22.

Since turning professional I have played tournaments on the Pepsi Tour, Dream Chasers Tour, and various state opens, travelling throughout Arizona, California, and Nevada. I have gained valuable experience, developed my golf game, and am motivated to work even harder in the coming months".

In addition to the Dream Chasers Tour events in 2015 Jack will be participating in PGA section qualifiers for the Phoenix Open and the U.S. Open. Jack is also working part time as a representative for Dixon Golf in promotional and charity tournaments. Those of you in North Scottsdale will recognize him as a Barista at the Starbuck at Pima and Pinnacle Peak. 

AND YOU CAN SPONSOR JACK TOO: Jack has set up his own LLC as Jack Griffen Golf, LLC. While Jack is working hard to support his career development (and the Center is pleased to be a sponsor) he would be gratified to add additional individual and company support. Jack has initiated a Go Fund Me account, which can be accessed here. Also you can contact Jack directly for further information and opportunities for sponsorship at the following:
