BOYLSTON, Mass. — The New England PGA has bolstered its tournament staff ahead of the 2021 season with the addition of Casey Litwack as Tournament Manager. In addition to assisting with the robust Section tournament operation, Litwack will oversee the Chapter Operations for the Rhode Island, Cape Cod, and Massachusetts Chapters. He will also serve in a support role for the Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont Chapters and will be involved in NEPGA Reach programs.
“The Tournament Manager role is a newly created position that is going to bring added value to each of our Chapters,” NEPGA Executive Director Mike Higgins said. “We are excited to have Casey onboard and are looking forward to having his skillset on our team.”
Litwack, an avid golfer and West Windsor, N.J. native, is no stranger to working in the sports industry. He comes to the NEPGA from the American Hockey League where he served as the Manager of Hockey Operations and had direct oversight of the day-to-day operations and logistics of the league’s officiating program.
“I am extremely honored to be joining the New England Section as Tournament Manager,” Litwack said. “I feel very lucky to join such a talented group of people at the NEPGA office. The game of golf has long been a passion of mine and has brought me so much joy in my personal life. I plan on bringing that passion and energy as I work to build upon the fantastic tournament program in place for the Section’s PGA Professionals. The opportunity to work within the game I love so much is a dream come true.”
Litwack’s belief in golf’s ability to forge relationships between people from all walks of life drew him to a career in the sport. In his new role as Tournament Manager, he is eager to develop relationships with the NEPGA membership and help provide a first-class tournament program.
He attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management. He was a four-year player for the UMass Club Ice Hockey team, where he served as the captain and president his senior year. Since graduation, he has stayed involved as an assistant coach for the nationally ranked program.
Litwack was most recently a member at Springfield Country Club and is striving to break par for the first time during the 2021 golf season. Off the course, his interests include skiing, hiking with his dog, and his never ending pursuit of making the perfect pizza.
