Corey Pavin

For the past four decades since turning professional in 1982, Corey has enjoyed success around the world, winning the 1995 US Open alongside 15 PGA Tour wins and more than 25 other Tour titles in 5 different continents – America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australasia.

He played in two Presidents Cup team and three Ryder Cups – including winning sides in 1991 and 1993 - and captained the US Team in 2010 at Celtic Manor, narrowly losing 13 ½ to 14 ½. He has been part of the Dow team since 2009.

Seeing golf as part of the solution

“Golf definitely has a special relationship with the environment and is doing a great deal to be part of the solution not part of the problem,” said Corey. “I think in the past, we designed golf courses without the forethought of water conservation, pesticide minimization, and the like.

"We are learning more and more each day about ways to minimize the need for green grass throughout an entire golf property. Waste bunkering, unmown areas, and creating self sustaining water sources when the course is constructed are just a few of the ways golf is seeking to do its part.”

On support from GEO on the sustainability journey, Corey said: “Partnering with the GEO Foundation just gives me a better platform to use my influence as a professional golfer to promote sustainability. This also allows my corporate partners to unite with me in sustainability messaging outside of the political arena. We are the ones that can make changes but it starts with one household at a time.

"The GEO Foundation helps to unite golfers. We are a community that relates well with each other. We share a love for the sport of golf and golf is such a wonderful experience in the open air and beauty of nature. It is important for professional golfers to be leaders in this important endeavour and I am proud to lend my name and influence to the cause."
