Kay Cornelius from Chandler, Arizona had an opportunity to attend the US Kids World Championship, in July. She had great fun attending that with her good friend Nicole Weller, (former LPGA and PGA National Junior Golf Leader) from The Landings Club in Savannah, GA. The USKG event was one of the neatest things she has ever seen in all her years in golf. There were over 1500 juniors taking part from more than 50 countries. The tournament was played on 10 courses in the Pinehurst area. Kay is very proud of one of her students who is 6 years old and finished third place out of over 100 juniors in his age division (6 & under). Kay & Nicole were on duty before the tournament started, sharing their stories at the USKG Parent Seminar and then assisting with club fitting at the USKG demo day.
It was a great opportunity to meet the players and the parents! Just on that day alone Kay met players and parents from Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Northern Ireland, South Africa, Guatemala, and Australia. Sounds like an exciting time for all those involved! What a great experience for everyone and those kids will take away wonderful memories.
