Four-time LPGA Tour winner Wendy Ward took part in a clinic on Wednesday afternoon at Fort Carson’s Cheyenne Shadows Golf Club. Fort Carson is a U.S. Army base located in Colorado Springs just down the road from The Broadmoor, where the U.S. Women’s Open conducted by the USGA is taking place this week.
Ward hit a few shots on the range before lightning in the area forced the clinic indoors. The 16-year LPGA Tour veteran and 1994 U.S. Women’s Amateur champion then held a question-and-answer session with the group of Army golfers and future golfers who were in attendance for the clinic.
For Ward, the clinic was a special opportunity since the military has always played a strong role in her life. Ward’s father is a retired Army Colonel and she spent much of her life around Army bases. Ward was joined by both of her parents at Fort Carson for Wednesday’s clinic.
