Jamie Taylor, LPGA, is an alumna of Laurel School in Cleveland, OH. There she started her quest in growing the game of golf by starting the golf team her junior year. She was inducted into the Laurel School Sports Hall of Fame for this contribution. After high school, she attended Gannon University in Erie, PA, where she received a full ride to play on the women’s varsity team. As the only African American in her conference; she served as captain her junior and senior year; was president of the Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC); and received her MBA.

Her career as an LPGA Teaching and Club Professional began when she was hired as the first female Head Golf Professional for the Cleveland Metroparks in Cleveland, OH. There she ran 27-hole and 36-hole golf courses. During her tenure, she created several women’s golf initiatives which were recognized by the Ohio Parks and Recreation, Crain’s Business Magazine, and the African American Golfers Digest. Jamie also had a unique opportunity to be the first golf professional to do weekly golf tips for WKYC. This six-week series helped her quest in inspiring minority youth by serving as a role model in the industry.

In 2015, Jamie decided she wanted to make a bigger impact on the golf community and moved to Florida, where she was the Programs Manager for the LPGA Foundation. In this role, her focus was growing the game by attracting more females through the LPGA*USGA Girls Golf Program. She oversaw the execution of junior clinics at LPGA Tournaments, LPGA Leadership Academies, Girls Golf Academies, eLeader Program, and scholarships. In her five years with the LPGA, Jamie developed the eLeader Program, a nationally recognized volunteer program for girls, ages 13 – 18; developed an app to help GG sites communicate with their members; wrote the curriculum for LPGA Golf 101 and #inviteHER clinics, and much more.
