About Dow Finsterwald

Dow Finsterwald grew up in Athens spending much of his time at the Athens Country Club. After playing golf at OHIO, he earned 11 PGA Tour wins, played on four Ryder Cup teams, and was names PGA Player of the Year in 1958, the season he took top place at the PGA championship.

As he found success, Finsterwald remained connected to his Athens roots mentoring young aspiring golfers in the community.

To celebrate his life, Kenny and Teri Ker have begun the Dow Finsterwald Scholarship for students who are looking to intern with the PGA Tour through the summer. This annual golf tournament will honor his legacy and raise funds to grow the scholarship.
