For the third-straight year, the Tennessee Lady Vol golf squad will join forces with the Knoxville affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to host a free women’s and girls’ golf clinic on Sunday, Sept. 30, at the Mack and Jonnie Day Golf Practice Facility. The clinic will be held in conjunction with the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate Challenge, which the Big Orange hosts October 12-14 at Holston Hills Country Club.
“We really enjoy hosting the golf clinic each year,” Lady Vol head coach Judi Pavon said. “It’s a great opportunity for us to give back to the community and to help get more girls involved in and excited about golf. At the same time, it’s good for our players to interact with so many different people and have fans put a name and a face together. We also use it as a chance to get some exposure for our team and hopefully get more fans out to watch the Mercedes tournament each year.”
The event is open to all ages and will run from 3-5 p.m. It includes instructions and drills led by Pavon and the UT women’s golf team. Participants will receive a gift bag that includes items from the Susan G. Komen foundation, as well as a voucher for a free Lady Vol visor that they can redeem at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate Championship.
Fans will be able to donate money to the Susan G. Komen foundation, as well as have the opportunity to win and bid on prizes at the clinic. Preregistration is required and check-in before the clinic begins at 2:15 p.m. To register, visit www.utsports.com/w-golf/ or contact Walann Reed at (865) 974-9619.
