It's all about paying it forward. On Sunday evening, an 8 year old girl shared her feelings about the game of golf at the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, FL as part of the 8th annual EWGA Foundation Fundraiser to support LPGA-USGA Girls Golf. She shared softly, "It's fun. I really like it."
Accompanied by her very proud grandfather to the event, this adorable youngster from the Jacksonville,FL LPGA-USGA Girls Golf program charmed everyone as she lit up the room when asked how she likes playing golf. She really enjoys learning how to play, the rules and what's right and wrong (and her grandfather mentioned she's helped him with the rules as well....) Enabling her to meet LPGA Tour Players, like Julieta Granada who was with us that evening, was a great experience and an unforgettable one!
Providing tools to young girls through the sport of golf is the right thing for the EWGA to do. The EWGA has been serving as mentors to young girls through LPGA-USGA Girls Golf for nearly a decade and the fundraising element is the by-product.
