TJGT Executive Director, Travis Measley, and top Texas high school golf coaches provide the day to day operations leadership. The TJGT has produced over 4000 collegiate alumni on academic and golf scholarships totaling over 200 million in financial aid including USGA Junior, Amateur, PubLinks, NCAA, NAIA, NJCAA Champions as well as Nationwide, Futures Tour, PGA and LPGA tour winners.
