Kerrigan joins IGA as Director of Competitions

The Iowa Golf Association would like to announce that Karli Kerrigan, of Ankeny, has joined the staff as Director of Competitions. Kerrigan will be in charge of the administration of IGA Championships, USGA Qualifiers, and support for the Rules of Golf and Golf Genius Software, a tournament software utilized by IGA Member Clubs.

Kerrigan replaces Ben Larson who recently accepted a role with the Epson Tour as a Manager of Rules & Competitions. The Epson Tour, previously known as the LPGA Futures Tour, and known for sponsorship reasons between 2006 and 2010 as the Duramed Futures Tour and between 2012 and 2021 as the Symetra Tour, is the official developmental golf tour of the LPGA Tour. Tour membership is open to professional women golfers and to qualified amateurs. The Epson Tour administers 21 regular season events and also Stage 1 and 2 of Final Qualifying School.

Kerrigan, who you might remember served as a P.J. Boatwright intern in 2019 and 2020, has most recently been a full time graduate student at Grand View University studying Organizational Leadership and working as a Graduate Assistant for the Grand View’s Sports Information Director. Kerrigan also worked at Glen Oaks Country Club this past summer in an effort to stay involved in the game of golf along with playing whenever she could.

“I’m thrilled to be back at the IGA and working with everyone there,” Kerrigan said. “I’m excited to play a small role in expanding the game of golf in Iowa and be surrounded by driven, like-minded individuals along the way. The IGA has played a large role in helping me get more involved in golf whether it be as a player or an intern and I’m looking forward to all that will come from this new opportunity.”
Kerrigan will start as a part-time IGA employee while she finishes her Masters degree at Grand View.  She will transition to full-time in early May.
