Starting. We do it every round of every tournament. It’s usually uneventful. Welcome to [tournament]. Teeing off is [golfer] from [hometown]. Claps, cheers.
Well today I had the honor of standing on the first tee with Carol Mann, a storied golfer and leader in women’s golf. Mann was a pioneer of the modern day LPGA, winning 38 events and a U.S. Women’s Open in her time as a professional from 1964-1975. She also served as the LPGA president for three years, making big changes to better the organization's marketing campaigns.
A Vare Trophy recipient in 1968 and Hall of Fame inductee in 1977, Mann was delighted to start some of the best junior golfers in the world. Adding her own flare and getting to know each player’s name and future plans, Carol got a first-hand glace into just how great golf’s next generation is.
