Hull and Mozo Helped Open New Computer Lab in Springfield

LPGA Tour member Katherine Hull and rookie Belen Mozo helped to officially open a new computer lab at Big Brothers Big Sisters Illinois Capital Region in Springfield, Ill. on Tuesday. As part of the charitable contributions from the 2010 LPGA State Farm Classic, IBM provided five Young Explorer Workstations and Reading Companion Software for the center. The new computers will help ensure the young people served by Big Brothers Big Sisters Illinois Capital Region have the tools to learn and grow.

Hull is Mozo’s Big Sister on the LPGA Tour this year as part of a program that pairs rookies with veteran players on Tour. So the two players were familiar with mentoring and enjoyed the opportunity to spend time playing computer games and talking with the kids during their visit.

“It’s always fun to visit some of the charities during the year and see where all of the money that we’re raising is going and how much of an impact it’s having in the communities,” said Hull. “It’s nice to see the kids benefiting.”

The event helped to kick off the 36th annual LPGA State Farm Classic, which will tee off on Thursday at Panther Creek Country Club. Defending champion and Rolex Rankings No. 4 Cristie Kerr will headline a field that features eight of the top-10 in the current Rolex Rankings and they will be competing for a purse of $1.7 million this week.
