The Tesori Family Foundation was founded in 2009 by former PGA TOUR player and current PGA TOUR caddie, Paul Tesori and his wife Michelle, to give back to those in need. In early 2014, after the much anticipated arrival of baby Isaiah (and his extra special extra chromosome!), the foundation expanded to give back not only in Paul’s hometown community of Northeast Florida but throughout the United States, adding specific programming for children with special needs. The foundation’s mission is to achieve great things through God by lending a helping hand, providing hope and healing hearts for children. Our vision for the foundation is to continue to make a positive change in the lives of children in communities touched by the PGA TOUR, one child at a time, in hopes that the children we touch with our faith and love will continue the cycle of hope for future generations.

A former Major League Baseball All-Star pitcher, Russ Ortiz wanted to find something meaningful to do with his time after his playing career. It didn’t take long for him to figure out what that would be. Deciding to marry his love for golf with his passion for helping those in need, Russ applied his incredible commitment to bring his vision to fruition, and thus, 2nd Guy Golf (now 2GG Apparel) was born.
