I am hoping to learn about the aspects that make golf tournaments perform well, and how to run them from an operations aspect.”

Jack Underwood Communications Intern
Jack also attends the University of Missouri and the famed Journalism School.  He expects to graduate in May 2023 with a Bachelor of Journalism in Newspaper Writing.  Underwood will fill the role of Communications Intern for 2022.  He looks to use his skills as a beat writer for the Columbia Missourian to assist MAGA with our Communications this coming season. On accepting the position for the season Underwood stated, “I am looking forward to using my abilities in content creation to manage press and communications for the Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association this summer.

Parker Leavitt – Operations Intern
Parker attends Arizona State University majoring in Mechanical Engineering and expects to graduate in May 2024.  Leavitt is familiar with MAGA having competed as a junior in the Metropolitan Junior Championship and U.S. Junior Amateur Qualifiers while in high school.  He continues to fill that competitive void by participating on the Arizona State Club Golf Team. Leavitt is excited to join the MAGA staff for the 2022 season and commented on joining our team, “I am both honored and thankful for the opportunity to be a Boatwright intern. I am looking forward to learning what goes on behind the scenes and what goes into putting on high quality events. I have always been a player in tournaments, so it will be interesting learning about the operations and seeing tournaments from a different point of view. I excited to meet new people and grow both personally and professionally.”
