Congratulations to our very own Allie Bodemann, who was awarded the LPGA’s highest honor, the 2015 LPGA Founders Award!
Allie serves double duty here at LPGA Headquarters as both the Girls Golf Programs Coordinator and as a Site Director for the Port Orange, Fla. Girls Golf program.
Both a Girls Golf alumni and a former collegiate golfer at Wake Forest University, Allie planned to pursue her dream of playing on the LPGA Tour after graduating college, until an unlikely car accident forced her to change paths. Her passion for the game and desire to make an impact on the lives of young people led her to the LPGA, where she now works with the LPGA Foundation’s Girls Golf program.
Allie’s job takes her across the country, working to introduce young women to golf by hosting Girls Golf clinics at LPGA Tour and USGA events. When she’s not on the road, she’s networking and coaching new and existing Girls Golf site directors to help them provide amazing experiences for Girls Golf members in their communities.
Nominated by her peers and honored by LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan, Allie was selected as the 2015 Founders Award recipient for exemplifying the same passion, commitment, and pride of the original 13 LPGA Founders when they began to build the longest-running women’s sports organization in the world. The LPGA Founders Award is the highest honor presented to any member of the LPGA staff.
Spend just a few minutes with Allie, and you’ll quickly see why she was selected for this prestigious award. When it comes to“acting like a Founder”, there’s no one more passionate about sharing their love for the game than Allie.
Join us in congratulating Allie on her tremendous LPGA honor! #LikeAFounder
