Gibson was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2015.

While the Wyndgate event is sold out, golfers can now participate in a virtual outing from anywhere around the world.

The Kirk Gibson Foundation was created in 1996 to provide college scholarships to students, both athletes and non-athletes at Waterford Kettering and Clarkston High Schools.  Kirk’s parents, Robert and Barbara, taught at these schools for many years and bestowed upon Kirk the value of education and community. After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2015, Kirk expanded the mission of the foundation to raise awareness and funding for Parkinson’s Research.
