August 1st, 2018

DALLAS, Texas – Today, The PGA of America announced that Cameron Doan, PGA head professional at Preston Trail Golf Club in Dallas, was awarded the Bill Strausbaugh Award.  This award is presented to those PGA members who by their day-to-day efforts have made significant contributions through mentoring of PGA Professionals. The award also considers the integrity and character of the PGA Member, their service to the Association, involvement in community and charitable activities. 

A 25-year, second-generation PGA Member, Doan fully embraces his leadership role and responsibility to help the next generation of young professionals advance their careers and deliver required performance outcomes. Doan’s native acuity to identify and implement best practices in leadership and organizational development from business and sport serve as the foundation of his approach in promoting individual and team growth. 

Cameron’s service extends to philanthropy, as he co-founded KidSwing, which has helped raise more than $2 million for Scottish Rite Hospital, while also introducing and growing the game’s popularity to more than 3,000 local kids. In addition, he helped start the Preston Trail scholarship program that has awarded more than $500,000 for children to further their education. 

Doan is the recipient of multiple Northern Texas PGA Section awards, and earlier in his career, Sun Country PGA Section recognition. His honors include the NTPGA Bill Strausbaugh Award (2017, 2012); 2010 NTPGA Golf Professional of the Year; 2008 NTPGA Player of the Year; and 2003 NTPGA Teacher of the Year. 

His Sun Country Section awards include Player of the Year (1996, ’97, ’98); Merchandiser of the Year (1996, ’97, ’98); and Teacher of the Year (1997). He was inducted into the El Paso Golf Hall of Fame in 2017.
