My experience at the LPGA*USGA Girls Golf Academy was definitely a great one. Even before the actual academy started, I was welcomed with open arms by all the LPGA staff. The first day was a big day for me, since this was my first trip by myself. The whole LPGA staff made it very easy for me to adjust to the unfamiliar. As an eLeader, I enjoyed watching all the girls grow over the course of two days, and I loved being exposed to the true power of the game of golf. The top three things that I took away from this experience were: building new and existing relationships, meeting the next generation of girls in golf, and learning more about myself.
