HSBC WOMEN’S CHAMPIONS 2011 – OUTSIDE THE ROPES ACTIVITY
Singapore, 24 February 2011 – Twenty members from the Victoria Junior College’s (VJC) Golf Club had a rare treat before their regular golf practice today. They met with American Amanda Blumenherst as part of a LPGA Outside the Ropes activity at the HSBC Women's Champions.
The pupils, all avid golfers, were very excited to see a real champion in the flesh who had played golf through college and university herself.
"We don't get to meet golf professionals so it is a rare opportunity for us. It serves as an inspiration to us and it shows that we can juggle our school work with golf," said Terence Tan, 18, Golf Captain from VJC's Golf Club.
LPGA Outside the Ropes is an outreach program embraced by LPGA Tour players to elevate their significant off-course activities. The community and charitable activities primarily are designed to benefit tournaments and title sponsors.
