The Biggest Star

Hello there,

As a family with an aspiring 11 year old female junior golfer, we planned our summer vacation to attend the CN Canadian Women's Open. I can tell you we were not disappointed.

The friendliness of the players was unbelievable and the fact that they took time to engage the kids was very refreshing. The golf was pretty good too ;) !!

We knew we were going to see superstars but let me tell you about our experience that has undoubtedly left an amazing impression on our daughter. On the Monday Pro-Am, I had volunteered to caddie and was assigned to an amateur with the Wendy Ward group. My wife, daughter, and my daughter's best friend were following. By about the third hole, Wendy pulled the girls in to walk behind with the group and invited the girls to putt on a few holes. You should have seen their eyes! I can not say enough how impressed we were that a Pro would take the time to chat with the girls and let them experience that. What a lasting impression that was so positive!! We have attended many other professional sports events and can honestly say, nothing comes remotely close to this experience or the whole week we had for that matter!

To us, the biggest LPGA star is Wendy Ward and we cannot thank her enough.

Looking forward to when the LPGA returns to Canada. Keep up the great work!!!

Steve, Ruby, and D'arci
