Letter from the Midwest Section Secretary – Martha Mallott

IMG_1167We’ve had extremely wet conditions in Ohio and now are heading into the hot and humid part of the summer. I am hoping that all of your golf programs are heating up as well.  Vice-President Penny Porter is plugging the LPGA-USGA GG organization and I would like to also put a plug in for the organization with which I have been involved for 13 years in Defiance.   The junior golfers involved usually start at a really young age and it’s really rewarding to watch them progress into high school golfers and sometimes collegiate players.  I recently saw a photo on MW Section member Pat Gray’sFacebook page.  There were three golfers from her junior programs who are headed to play collegiate golf.  How neat!

Letter from the Secretary – Kristie Fowler

KristieFowler Hello everyone!

My name is Kristie Fowler, and I am your new Secretary.  Golf started to be a part of my life while growing up in Colorado.

I participated in junior golf, high school, college golf and even played a little on the mini tour, which in my day was the Futures Tour.  I am a PGA Member and an LPGA Master Professional.  I have gained many experiences over the years working at a variety of public and private clubs.

That is some of WHAT I have done in golf.  Now I will tell you some of the WHY.

I love the game, the people associated with it, and I have a passion to succeed and see others succeed and be happy.  I am hoping to help energize our Central Section and get more people involved, informed and excited about golf, the LPGA and WHY we do what we do.
