KPMG: Wire to Wire for Hannah Green

The KPMG Championship Tournament provided a great opportunity to watch women's golf at its best!

Hope you had a chance to witness this great display of golf - and not just because it's 'women's' golf. But because making 300+ yard drives and accurate shots to the greens look effortless is remarkable.  

Our team that worked Hole #16 had a really great time. (Ann even made it on TV in the rain with Kristi Kerr).  But it seems attendance wasn't quite "up to par". It's unfortunate so many golf lovers missed out. Hope you weren't one of them. 

We, of all golfers, need to support the LPGA. Going from the EWGA to being LPGA Amateurs really made us a part of a bigger picture in the golf world and we are very lucky to be part of the LPGA - so wear it proudly!
