Round 1 LPGA JTBC Founders Cup
I was soooo ready to start day 2 as a Junior Course Reporter at the 2016 LPGA JTBC Founders Cup. It’s Green Day!!! So far we have set up the Girls Golf booth with fun activities and cool games. Then Katie and I headed over for a “What’s FORE lunch?” (a business networking lunch for local business ladies with the Founders Cup team). The food at the lunch was very good and my favorite part the amazing cookies (hehe).
Later that day, we went to the media center and got to stop and write. Then we left to go to The Golf Channel booth/hub out in the middle of the golf course. We got to see all of the controls and set ups. That was super cool.
After we got back, Katie and I went to Starbucks in the lobby—fewf, that was needed. Then out of the blue, we followed Paula Creamer, Lydia Ko, and Jessica Korda—Wow, what an honor and a super cool group.
On one of the holes, the game got backed up and so they had to wait to tee off and so Lydia, Jessica and Paula pulled out their snacks and started sharing food and laughing and chatting it up until they could play again! It was really cool to see them just chillaxin’!
We followed them inside the ropes until the end of the round and we were able to get an interview with Lydia Ko—that was super cool! She is so nice and kind and took the time to talk to us young reporters! Thanks Lydia!!!
Overall, a fantastic, super fun day, and can’t wait to do it again tomorrow!! So this is Kalysta signing off until then—see you on Round 2 at the 2016 JTBC Founders Cup!!
