Bella Bugg '23 Playing in Tennessee Cup to Benefit St. Jude, Other Nonprofits

The first weekend of November, BGA senior and recent TSSAA individual state golf champion Bella Bugg will hit the links in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, The Snedeker Foundation, and the American Junior Golf Association’s ACE Grant program. Joining other junior golfers from around the state, Bugg will play in the AJGA’s fourth annual Tennessee Cup, a two-day Ryder Cup-style event.

“The Tennessee Cup is a must-play for me and a great chance to represent Tennessee and raise money for some of my favorite nonprofit organizations,” said Bella. “So far, as a team, we’ve raised nearly $50,000 toward our $75,000 goal.” You can learn more about the cup and Bella’s fundraising efforts here.

Notable AJGA alumni include Tiger Woods, Inbee Park, Phil Mickelson, Paula Creamer, Jordan Spieth, Megan Pressel, Rickie Fowler, and Lexi Thompson.
