Young pro golfer List to launch foundation

Professional golfer Danny List is set to launch the ‘Danny List Foundation’ soon. 

It’s anon-profit charity primarily focused on giving young men, women and children in Ghana the resources and opportunities to excel in athletics as well as help them access much needed education and healthcare. 

Currently playing his third season on the PGA tours, Danny List grew up in Ghana and had a stellar start to his young career.

Although he started as a football player, at age 12 his passion for golf dominated his time.

After turning professional at the age of 19, List still carries Ghana’s golfing hopes on his shoulders and is flying the flag of the Black Star of Africa.

The young golfer traces his love for charity to his mother and grandmother, insisting they instilled in him “from a young age the importance of giving back to the community and the less privileged in society, a mentality that has stayed with me to this day”. 

According to the young golf player, “although there are charities that do fantastic work in West Africa, this foundation’s main focus is sports” and this is particularly important because “sports serves as an escape from everyday stresses and distractions.

Danny List is equally mindful his background and experiences places him in a unique position to be a positive role model for young golfers in Ghana to look up to and “strive for similar and hopefully bigger things in life.”

One of the overarching goals of the Danny List Foundation is to build a multi-sports complex and academy in Ghana that will grant children access to suitable facilities and training to hone their athletic skills.
