The Play Yellow movement was championed by Jack and Barbara Nicklaus in an effort to raise money through the golf industry for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals throughout the country. Play Yellow is a widely supported initiative in the golf world and boasts the support of well-known golf entities, such as the PGA TOUR, Callaway, PGA TOUR Superstore, and more!

Play Yellow Ambassadors
In 2017, PGA TOUR professional John Senden's son, Jacob, was diagnosed with an aggressive, malignant brain tumor the size of a golf ball. The doctors at Children’s Health saved Jacob’s life after an emergency brain surgery at Children’s Medical Center Dallas. Following six months of chemotherapy and six weeks of radiation, Jacob’s tumor decreased to the size of a pea. Jacob has regular visits with his medical team at Children’s Health and now leads an active life. He recently received his driver’s license and stays busy by playing golf, solving Rubik’s Cubes, making music on his marimba and serving as the Children’s Health Play Yellow Champion. Read Jacob's full story on our website.
John Senden was recently named the Play Yellow National Brand Ambassador for the PGA TOUR and advocates for Children's Health by sporting a Play Yellow and Children's Health co-branded golf bag while playing on the TOUR.
