Final Round JTBC Founders Cup

I started off the day being a “tee girl” on the first tee. By having this job I had to greet all the players who were about to tee and begin the final round of the 2016 LPGA JTBC Founders Cup. It was really nice how even though many of the players were their “zone”, they still took the time to introduce themselves and say hi. My favorite person that I meet that morning was Brooke Henderson because she was very sweet and started talking to Kalysta and I like we were her best friend. That personability means so much to us! Another thing that I found really interesting, was how the announcers were always able to pronounce the players’ names – you can tell they have been doing this a long time. They even told a few of their secrets when they come across a name that scares them.

Final Round JTBC Founders Cup

Kalysta here! EEEKKK! It’s the last day at the LPGA JTBC Founders Cup Scottsdale, Arizona. I met up with Katie in the morning and we got our special Caramel Frappuccino blended coffee to start our day—Makes us feel official! Then we headed over to the first tee to help greet and start groups. It is Green & Tee girl day at the event. We were able to meet with a lot of players, snap pictures and autographs as they teed off on their first hole of the day but most importantly, we got to say “thank you for supporting Girls Golf!”

Round 3 JTBC Founders Cup

What a fun-packed day at the JTBC Founders Cup!!! The day started with getting interviewed by Golf Channel on the practice range. I have to say, I was very nervous but they all told me I did great and gave good answers. It felt so cool to be the one being interviewed rather than the other way around. After this, Kalysta and I went around the range and putting green getting interviews from a few of the pros. This was such a blast and I really felt like I was a part of the Golf Channel crew (which is my DREAM)!!!

Round 2 LPGA JTBC Founders Cup

It’s Friday!!! Today wasn’t really a jammed packed day for me, so I enjoyed going on the range and taking pictures of the pros practicing. I also sat at the Girls Golf booth with my Mom and Miss Christina, and a couple of the other ladies and watched all the little girls come up to the table and get really excited about the game of golf! I met a lot of Canadians!!! I am a Canadian (as well as American) so it was fun to chat with them. The booth is a great way to market Girls Golf and chat with lots of event attendees.

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).

Round 1 LPGA JTBC Founders Cup

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Day 2 on the job at the 2016 LPGA JTBC Founders Cup was filled with meeting new people and learning new things. We started with the “What’s FORE Lunch” luncheon—a great networking event. It was a meeting for business ladies in the community and a great way for them to connect. We did a fun activity to learn about each other and strengths by coming up with a business plan for a new business. I have to say I got a little scared when the hostess, Tracy Hupko, gave us this task but surprisingly, once we started, the ideas come out really easy. All of the people who attended this luncheon were extremely nice and creative.

The 2016 LPGA JTBC Founders Cup is HERE!!! I have to say, the first day being BACK on the job has been a great one! Tuesday, March 15th started with the AXA Press Conference where we got to hear some advice from the creators of Vision 54, Lynn and Pia Nelson. They gave a ton of useful skills that are meant to help us with the mental and emotional side of golf. We even got the chance to experience it live in person by them coming over to watch a few swings and give us pointers on how we should handle the good and bad shots. Also during this conference, Britney Lincicome made an appearance and talked to us for a bit.
